‘From Palestine to Mexico, All the Walls Have Got to Go!’: Anti-Israel Chants Heard Across Country at Protests Against Trump Travel Ban
Anti-Israel activists at a number of demonstrations across the US over the weekend appeared to co-opt protests against President Donald Trump’s controversial travel ban executive order by leading chants of “From Palestine to Mexico, all the walls have got to go!” or variations thereof.
Such chants were reportedly heard at airports in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, Austin, Detroit and Baltimore, among other locations, as protesters rallied against the executive order, which imposes temporary travel restrictions on incomers from seven Middle Eastern nations — Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen.
A video of the slogan being chanted in San Francisco can be seen below:

In November, as reported by The Algemeiner, anti-Israel activists sought to hijack left-wing protests that erupted across the US following Trump’s victory over Hillary Clinton in the presidential election.
Chants heard at some of those protests included, “There is only one solution…intifada revolution,” and “Trump, Obama, you will feel the intifada.”
