Since Donald Trump signed in the executive order on his recent immigration ban, protests all over the world have sprung up in support of immigrants and refugees, and those demonstrating at LAX yesterday had some familiar words of solidarity.

A group of protesters chanted "Inshallah, mashallah / Hopefully no marshal law"—lyrics from the track "T5" by English-American-Indian-Pakistani group Swet Shop Boys—with reference to the fact that a number of Muslim immigrants were being detained in airports across the US. The "T5" music video takes place at John F Kennedy airport, and shows Riz MC and Heems being interrogated by TSA border agents.
