Students and Triangle community members are coming together to protest President Trump’s executive order on immigration. The order restricts immigrants from seven predominantly Muslim countries and bans the admission of all refugees for one hundred and twenty days. It also bans refugee admissions from Syria indefinitely.

People around the Triangle are making their anger toward the new policy known and are calling their peers to advocate for the refugee community both nationally and here at home.
