Travelers flying into Los Angeles International Airport on Saturday will get an unusual welcome to the city, even before their planes touch the ground. Hundreds of volunteers working with the Discover Los Angeles, the area’s tourism board, plan to stand in a park just north of the airport’s runways, holding up signs that spell out “Welcome” in four languages. The effort is an attempt by the board to counter the message that tourism officials say is being sent by President Trump’s plans to block travel from some majority-Muslim countries and build a wall along the U.S.’ southern border.
