Washington: Joining the scores of Hollywood stars, who went after U.S. President Donald Trump’s sweeping ban on immigrants from seven Muslim nations, James Corden has protested against Trump’s travel ban – but basically without saying a word.
Corden, in a video package that aired before his Monday night episode of “The Late Late Show,” Corden chronicled his somewhat mundane experience while travelling out of Los Angeles to make a point, reports CNN.
In the video, Corden arrives at the airport (some protestors can be spotted as he enters the building), goes through security, casually orders a grilled cheese sandwich once past the screening area, and exchanges pleasantries with a flight attendant while boarding his flight.
The video ends with text notifying viewers that Corden’s shows for the week have been pre-taped as he is away from Los Angeles.
“Freedom of movement should be this easy for all legal immigrants,” the video added, referring to Corden’s experience. “Not just the white and Christian ones.”
Corden is the latest celebrity to address Trump’s executive order, signed Friday, that prohibits people from seven predominately Muslim countries from entering the United States for 90 days. The order also suspends the admission of all refugees for 120 days and indefinitely suspends the Syrian refugee program.
The action has spurred a flood of protests and was in the forefront during Sunday’s Screen Actors Guild Awards. (ANI)
