Protests continued for a second day following President Donald Trump's executive orders banning travel from seven countries.
U.S. Congressman Jim Sensenbrenner held a town hall meeting in Menonomee Falls Sunday evening which drew in people both for and against Trump's latest move in office.
TODAY'S TMJ4 was denied access into the meeting. Menonomee Falls police told our news crew it was too crowded.
Around 7:30 p.m., around 200 people were waiting in the hallway waiting for a chance to voice their opinions to Sensenbrenner.
"We are all basically ancestors of immigrants," Sadie Longhi said. "I don't understand why we are trying to divide the country."
Last week, Trump issued orders not to allow immigrants into the United States who were traveling from Iraq, Syria, Iran, Sudan, Libya, Somalia and Yemen.
A federal judge ruled late Saturday that immigrants arriving from those countries with a valid visa or approved refugee application cannot be deported.
Republican and pro-Trump support Van Mobley says while not all immigrants have ill intentions, the United States can't take any more chances.
“Terrorists when they came here and if they come here from those counties will not say they are terrorists, they would say they are nice people and refugees," Mobley said. "We have to have in place a mechanism by which we vet them.”
Trump argues is 90-day immigration ban is all about safety and security.
“No one disputes that the countries that we’ve directed this order at are not unsettled and dangerous places," Mobley said.
However, Rizwan Ahmad, a member of the Amadiyya Muslim Community says banning immigrants especially from Muslim-majority countries sends the wrong message.
“If people know what the true teachings of Islam are, then they are less likely to fall for the propaganda that is out there," Ahmad said. “The biggest misconception is people don’t even realize Islam means peace and that’s what we are all about is peace.”
Ahmad says he's been working with the local community to help residents understand the culture and beliefs of Islam.
President Trump has stated his orders are "not a Muslim ban".
