Second day of protest draws 600 to Portland International Airport, one man assaulted

Portland International Airport was packed Sunday with hundreds demonstrating against the executive order banning immigration from seven Muslim-majority countries signed by President Donald Trump last week.

Port of Portland officials say approximately 600 turned out, eclipsing the previous day's 100 to 150 demonstrators.

The presence of a four-man counter-protest at times turned tense as demonstrators from both camps clashed. One of the counter-demonstrators was assaulted just after 5 p.m., Port of Portland spokesman Steve Johnson said.

Grant Chisholm, 39 of Portland told The Oregonian/Oregonlive that he was at the airport with three other members of the group Bible Believers for a counter protest when a Trump opponent hit him in the head three times with something metallic. Chisholm dropped and drifted in and out of unconsciousness, he said, while vomiting as other protesters kicked him in the head.
