As thousands of protesters outside chanted No hate, No fear, Refugees are welcome here.  Two dozen men and boys came inside the McNamara Terminal at Detroit Metro Airport Sunday, put down their protest signs, took off their shoes and began to pray.

According to the Detroit Free Press, one man stood before them, chanting softly to lead them in prayer.  They were exercising religious freedom at a time when many of them say they fear their civil liberties are in jeopardy in the United States.

People carried homemade signs and raised their voices to protest President Donald Trump's executive order to ban the entry of people from seven Muslim majority countries for 90 days and suspended the entry of refugees.
