The protesters gathered near the Terminal 1 international arrival gate, carrying signs opposing the executive order, which bars migrants from seven primarily Muslim countries.
They shouted slogans such as “No hate! No fear! Immigrants are welcome here!” The only international flight to arrive during the hourlong demonstration was from Cancun, Mexico. Arriving travelers appeared confused by the activity, but some raised their thumbs in support.
There were no known detainments of anyone coming into the Minneapolis-St. Paul airport Saturday.
The rally was one of several airport protests nationwide, including a daylong demonstration outside New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport, where two Iraqi men were detained Saturday morning. Both have since been released.
