Billionaire liberal activist George Soros is helping fund the airport protests against President Donald Trump's executive order to ban refugees from war-torn Syria indefinitely and suspend visas from seven countries for at least 30 days, as PJ Media reported Sunday.
This Soros connection, including reports of funding lawsuits to block the orders, begs the question: Are these protesters being paid to be there?
The website's Debra Heine posted tweets of airport protests against the action, which was granted a stay Saturday night by a New York Judge amid an ACLU fight to block the immigration ban and deportation of stranded travelers from those locations wanting to enter the U.S.
This tweet's photo showed protesters fighting deportations, ironically, by saying the first lady should be deported.
Heine's next posted tweet is the one that outed the source of the protesters. They are activists being paid in part by Soros.
"'Make the Road' is a NY-based far-left non-profit funded in part by George Soros," Heine wrote Sunday morning.
"Immigration lawyers from groups financed by Soros" signed the ACLU lawsuit which led to the stay of President Trump's executive orders, according to the report.
President Trump lashed back at opposition to his executive orders Sunday morning via Twitter, saying he is pushing to defend the U.S. borders and protect American citizens.
Soros, a Hungarian-American, reportedly lost $1 billion after President Trump's election, having backed Democrat Hillary Clinton against him this past fall, and plotting a stock market hedge. Trump's election rallied the market to all-time highs, including the Dow climbing over 20,000 for the first time in history.
