GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Dozens of protesters took to Piedmont Triad International Airport in Greensboro Monday to speak out against President Donald Trump's executive orders limiting immigration to the United States and to send their message that immigrants should be welcomed here.
The group of protesters obtained a permit which allows up to 150 people to participate. After the protest organizers say they achieved their goal of keeping it peaceful. The protesters were in an area that won’t interrupt traffic at the terminal. Greensboro Police were on hand to monitor the demonstration.
The protest coincides with other airport protests across the country including some at airports in Raleigh and Charlotte.
