ROUGH CUT. NO REPORTER NARRATION. Dozens of people gathered outside the U.S. consulate on Sunday (February 5) to protest against U.S. President Donald Trump's executive order on immigration. The protesters, many of them appearing to be of South East Asian origin, held banners reading "Islam is not terrorism" and "love Trumps hate" as they rallied outside the consulate. "There are many workers coming from Muslim countries, especially domestic workers and there are many of them, they might have families, they might have their friends in the U.S. and the workers, they are part of the Hong Kong community and I think it's our responsibility to fight also for their rights in Hong Kong," said one protester. A federal judge ruled on Friday (February 3) that the travel ban should be lifted, though the U.S. justice department has since filed an appeal. This is the second time people in Hong Kong have protested since the enactment of the travel ban. A similar rally was held on February 1.
