Immigrant and Refugee Vigil

President Donald Trump signed an executive order on January 27th, 2017 that put a ban on seven specific predominantly Muslim countries, entering the United States. IRIS (Integrated Refugee Immigration Services) holds a vigil on January 29th in New Haven Connecticut, only two days after the executive order was put into place. Students and professors of Yale University among thousands of others, lit candles and listened to various speakers, some of which were immigrants or refugees. One notable crowd chant was "We are here and we are not going away."
