James Corden Says Travel Should Be 'Easy For All Legal Immigrants'

From Ellen DeGeneres to Mahershala Ali, many Hollywood celebrities have spoken out on President Donald Trump's immigration travel ban which was signed on Friday.

James Corden protested the ban without even saying a word.

On Monday night's episode of "The Late Late Show," the British host, who moved to the United States in 2014, was shown recording his experience of travelling out of Los Angeles airport.

In the video titled "Post-Ban Trip Through LAX," we see the 38-year-old arriving by car to the airport. As he enters the building, he spots protesters with signs. Corden then proceeds to check in and go through security and the screening area ... easily. Even before his flight, James has time to order a grilled cheese sandwich. He exchanges pleasantries with a boarding agent, and off he goes to board his flight.

The video ends with text notifying viewers that Corden's shows for the week have been pre-taped as he is away from Los Angeles.

"Freedom of movement should be this easy for all legal immigrants," the video explained. "Not just the white and Christian ones."

Trump's executive order banned citizens of seven predominantly Muslim countries from travelling to the U.S. for 120 days, and blocked the entry of Syrian refugees to the country.

Corden also took to Twitter to show his support for the people of Liverpool by sharing a picture of their anti-Trump protest.


Corden is set to host the Grammy Awards on February 12, After a powerful statement like this, it leaves us to wonder if the British comedian will use the opportunity to address Trump live on television too.
