South Bend is among the hundreds of communities across the U.S. where people gathered in opposition to President Donald Trump’s executive order that bans citizens of some Muslim-majority countries from entering the U.S.
Hundreds of people opposed to the order gathered outside the Morris Center in downtown South Bend Sunday afternoon. Many carried signs saying “Let Them In” and “No Ban, No Wall,” according to ABC 57.
Notre Dame president The Reverend John Jenkins issued a statement saying President Trump’s order halts the work of valued students and colleagues who have already passed a rigorous, post-9/11 review process, are vouched for by the university and have contributed so much to the campus.
