The British are taking it to the streets and protesting in London and across many cities in the United Kingdom. Their anger towards the travel ban that President Trump has implemented against Muslim countries, and halting visas, has outraged the international community.

The British government is taking the ban very seriously. Its members of Parliament are debating about what more will come from their long-time ally across the Atlantic. What’s more, a petition with more than one million signatures on it, calling on British Prime Minister Theresa May to ban Donald Trump’s visit to the United Kingdom, is now something with enough public support that the Parliament must consider the option.
