On social media, a special kind of protest was brewing among rappers, R&B singers, and celebs. They expressed outrage at the President’s latest move.

This is a beautiful story. When we reject Iraqi refugees, we reject Brahim. Shame on America. Shame on Donald Trump. https://t.co/1NzFtUPvm8

I am a Christian who would rather sit at the table with a Muslim brother than ban him from a home that wasn't originally mine…
