New York taxi drivers have their own response to President Donald Trump’s immigration ban: A strike.
As protests continue to break out across major U.S. airports Saturday night following President Trump’s immigration ban, taxi drivers at New York’sJohn F. Kennedy International Airport have gone on strike.
In postings to social networks Saturday the New York Taxi Workers Alliance announced that from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. ET there would be no pickups at JFK as a protest to the immigration ban that some are taking as a ban on Muslims.
“We cannot be silent. We go to work to welcome people to a land that once welcomed us,” wrote the union on Twitter. “We will not be divided.”
“NO PICKUPS @ JFK Airport 6 PM to 7 PM today,” the union wrote in a subsequent tweet that was retweeted over 10,000 times.
