While at the BWI protest, Lauren Sisselman managed to catch up with Congressman John Sarbanes to ask him his thoughts on what the protest and the executive order banning travelers from seven middle-eastern countries.
What does this mean for Marylanders in general
Look, you have this really spontaneous expression of concern and anxiety, frustration, being presented by the hundreds and hundreds of people that are here at the airport. and they're looking at this executive order (among many), but this one in particular, which appears unlawful and unconstitutional.
Another thing is this executive order just defies common sense if you look at the way it's written. I don't think it's going to keep us safer, it will put our troops at risk overseas. And it really feeds into propaganda from ISIS and these terrorist groups.
The idea that an interpreter that helped our troops for 10 years wouldn't be able to get into the country, because of this executive order, it really tells you all you need to know.
That's why people are here.
