In order to protest President Trump's ban on travel from several majority Muslim countries, taxi workers went on strike last week for an hour at JFK airport, and Yemeni-owned bodegas closed for several hours Thursday in protest. Bhairavi Desai, executive director of the New York Taxi Workers Alliance, and Linda Sarsour, director of Arab American Association of New York, discuss the taxi strike and the Yemeni grocery owners protest.
