BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Saturday’s march in Baltimore was just one of many taking place around the country during the weekend. Protesters were calling for an end to Trump’s travel ban.

Close to 200 people from the Episcopal Diocese of Maryland weaved through the streets of Baltimore City to come to the aid of refugees. Our media partner, Baltimore Sun, reports that 350 people were there to protest.

“We are here for you, we love you, it makes no difference,” said Eugene Taylor Sutton, bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Maryland.

It’s been a similar scene across the country since Trump put a travel ban in place to block immigrants from seven predominately Muslim countries.

“I’m sure that they are very afraid right now and feel very alone and isolated,” said Margo Landon from Baltimore.

“We want that temporary ban to be truly temporary and end soon,” Eugene Sutton said.

The frustrations stretch to the state’s capital, where dozens gathered on Saturday as well and voiced similar concerns, hoping Maryland can lead by example.

“Baltimore needs to be that welcoming place where people can come from around the world,” Margo said.

Those in Baltimore with the Episcopal Diocese of Maryland said they don’t have anything else planned just yet but will continue to hold marches like this until the ban is officially lifted.

    The disinformation campaign about the so-called Muslim ban by the Trump administration has been orchestrated in the United States, Canada, and Western Europe by most mainstream media outlets, fake-left pseudo-independent news outlets, the leading social media platforms worldwide, as well as the search engines. What the Trump administration did by issuing an executive order restricting visas for nationals of specific countries was not a random anti-Muslim racist measure but instead a security precaution to prevent terrorist attacks funded by a still very active globalist cabal spearheaded by the puppet master George Soros, his countless associates in politics, finance and media, as well as the ruling royal family of Saudi Arabia.
