Comedian James Corden Makes Statement About How Travel Should Be for Everyone

“Late, Late Show” host James Corden offered a straightforward response to Donald Trump’s anti-Muslim travel ban with a video posted to YouTube this morning.

The footage, which clocks in at just over a minute, shows Corden undertaking the most mundane aspects of travel: riding in a car to the Los Angeles airport, checking in, passing through security, and ultimately boarding a plane. It’s an uneventful, hassle-free passage for Corden, a British immigrant to these United States. That’s how it should be for everyone.

The video closes with a simple message, white text on a black screen:

“Today, James flew out of Los Angeles. So all of our shows this week have been pre-taped. Freedom of movement should be this easy for all immigrants. Not just the white and Christian ones.”
