Protesters nationwide continue to voice their disapproval of President Donald Trump's travel ban. Even after a federal judge, late on Friday, lifted the ban Trump HAD imposed on citizens of seven mainly Muslim countries. SOT: "Your bigotry and racism has no place in America." Protesters rallied outside of the White House to say EVERYONE is welcome in the United States. Just a few miles away at Dulles International Airport, travelers who were once affected by Trump's executive order, began arriving on U.S. soil.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) OFELIA CALDERON, IMMIGRATION ATTORNEY, SAYING: "We don't know what's going to happen. What I do know is that the administration has said they are going to file an appeal."
