The New York Taxi Workers Alliance has announced on Twitter that it is halting passenger pickups at JFK airport in protest of the dozens of people detained under President Trumpís Muslim immigration ban.

The Alliance announced that it would be halting pickups at JFK from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. to protest reports of at least a dozen people who have been detained in the airport due to the immigration ban executive order signed by President Trump yesterday. One green card holder was released from detainment earlier today.

Meanwhile, the New York Taxi Workers Alliance working stop joins a growing protest against the immigration ban outside of JFK airport.



Empty cab stand during work stoppage. Viva la cabbies!
