Hundreds gather in unity with the East Texas Muslim community

Hundreds from across Tyler gathered Thursday evening to show support for their Muslim neighbors.

The event, “Support Our Muslim Neighbors,” came within a week of a South Texas mosque fire and President Donald Trump’s immigration ban on several predominantly Muslim countries.

“With all of the rhetoric and everything you hear on the news, this is really refreshing and is just amazing to us,” said Anwar Khalifa, spokesperson for the East Texas Islamic Society.
