A group of Arab students are planning a silent protest against Governor Nathan Deal’s executive order refusing Syrian refugees from the state of Georgia. The protest will be on Thursday, Nov. 19th, and members of the Christians for United Palestine will join the Arab Cultural Association at 5:00 P.M. at the Tate Student Center at the University of Georgia. The protest is right before the next home football game, and will be located at the Tate center because of the high foot traffic.

One student, Katie Christensen, said, “I mean if the terrorists want to get in, they’re going to get in. They’re going to get in with people who look more white than Middle Eastern.” Christensen continued, “They’re going to find their way into the country.”
