Adorable Pic Of Dads With Their Kids Goes Viral For Amazing Immigration Message

People all across the country — and the world — came out over the past week to protest against Donald Trump's executive orders on immigration.

On Friday, January 27, Trump ordered bans on refugees and immigrants from seven countries that are majority Muslim. The order also created a religious test for refugees, prioritizing Christians. Because of all that, many believe this to essentially be a Muslim ban.

The protests that broke out this weekend were about welcoming and acceptance of all people.

One photo, taken by Nuccio DiNuzzo for the Chicago Tribune, demonstrates that full message. The photographer calls it, simply, “Untitled.”

The picture shows two kids seated on their fathers's shoulders at a protest.

The girl on the left is wearing a veil while the boy on the right is wearing yarmulke.

DiNuzzo explained on Instagram the photo was taken at Chicago's O'Hare International Airport on Monday, January 30.

The little girl Meryem Yildirim, who is 7, is with her father, Fatim. The little boy is Adin Bendat-Appell, 9, with his father, Rabbi Jordan.

The photo quickly went viral across social media.

It was met with positive responses from many people, who said that it represented exactly what the protests were standing for in acceptance and welcoming between cultures and religions.

Gavin Newsom, Lieutenant Governor of California, also tweeted the photo.

He said,

This is the America that is worth every second of the fight ahead.

Somebody replied to him, saying that she would share the photo widely, using the hashtag #LoveTrumpsHate.

Newsom responded it was good to share this image and others like it as they “strengthen those who fight hate, and weaken those who traffic in it.”
