Crowd Flocks To Times Square For 'Today, I Am A Muslim Too' Rally
CBS New York
A crowd flooded Times Square Sunday to protest President Donald Trump's immigration policies, claiming they target Muslims.
The order, which was placed on hold earlier this month by a federal judge, banned travel from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen. It also banned all refugees from across the globe. On Feb. 9, a three judge panel from the the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals refused to reinstate the temporary ban.
But at the rally, organized by music producer and businessman Russell Simmons, speakers said Muslims are under "increasing threat and pressure" under the Trump administration. The rally was titled, "Today, I am a Muslim Too."
