Citizen journalist Austen Fletcher traveled to Los Angeles International Airport last Monday to speak with the people protesting President Donald Trump’s immigration executive order and found quite a few people who seemed to have no idea why they were even there.
Speaking to protesters standing outside the Tom Bradley international terminal, Fletcher began asking several of the protesters to explain their reason for being there, and asking them questions. One of the protesters said that Trump signed the executive order because of 9/11, but didn’t include the right countries.
“He did it because of 9/11,” the protester said. “But the countries that the terrorists were from aren’t even in the ban.”
Another protester agreed. “The countries that he is banning don’t have — you know they’re not the terrorists that came for 9/11.” When Fletcher interjected to tell her that the terrorists behind the 9/11 terror attack did train in those countries included in the temporary travel ban, she responded, “Right, that’s true, but they didn’t come from those countries.”
