WICHITA, Kan. – A protest line began outside a Wichita mosque objecting to President Trump’s travel order. 

KAKE News’ Greg Miller reports a second rally was planned later the same day outside Eisenhower National Airport. Many similar demonstrations have occurred throughout many United States airports this weekend, including Kansas City National Airport. 

President Trump issued a 90-day ban on travelers from seven countries and a 120-day suspension of the U.S. refugee program. 

Wichita State University officials say the executive order has not affected students so far.
WSU spokesperson Joe Kleinsasser told KAKE News students from the seven countries listed on the ban are already on campus since the spring semester has already started. 

“We will put out a message on Monday,” Kleinsasser said, “to international students to recommend that they remain in the U.S. until we have some clarity about how the Executive Order is being applied.”
