A small group gathered at Tucson International Airport Sunday speaking out against President Trump's executive order on an immigrant travel ban. 

The ban prohibits citizens from seven predominantly Muslim countries from entering the United States for 90 days and suspending entry for 120 days. 



These countries include Iran, Libya, Iraq, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen. 

A protester at TIA says this issue goes further than party lines. 



"It's not about Republican, it's not about Democrat, it's about the people, and free rights, decent human rights," Edwige Sahraoui, a protester told KGUN9.
