MILWAUKEE -- Members of a mosque in Milwaukee held a special interfaith event on Sunday, January 29th.

The gathering at Humboldt Park was in response to President Donald Trump's immigration ban.

President Trump's executive order bars citizens from Iraq, Syria, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen from entering the U.S. for the next 90 days.

Judges from New York to Seattle have granted limited relief for citizens of the seven Muslim-majority countries who have already arrived in the US (or are in the air) with a valid visa or green card, blocking their deportation from the country (for now).

Advocacy groups say they plan to file additional lawsuits in the days to come challenging the constitutionality of the order as whole.

Here in Milwaukee's Humboldt Park, organizers invited faith leaders in the area to share peaceful teachings from their religions.

Leaders also talked about Milwaukee and how they can help bring peace to the city.

    Obama did this very same thing in 2011

    Obama banned all people from Iraq from coming into the US for 6 months

    What’s the difference?

    I love Americans that’s why I support Trump. I don’t want to see any Americans hurt because of terrorists.

    The idiots dont get it. They never read the Koran. There is no such thing as a religion of peace called “Islam ” which means “submit.” The Koran teaches “convert or die” .
