James Corden is taking a stand against President Trump's controversial travel ban.

After pre-taping this week's episodes of The Late Late Show, the British comedian filmed himself going through Los Angeles International Airport with ease before catching a flight to the UK.

His activities inside LAX are fairly mundane. He takes his shoes off to go through security, asks where to check-in, and gets a sandwich at some point. But the banality of the video is part of the point.

"Freedom of movement should be this easy for all legal immigrants," the text reads at the end of the clip. "Not just the white and Christian ones."

Corden is just the latest celebrity to express disapproval over the president's executive order, which restricts immigration from seven Muslim-majority countries and suspends the United States' entire refugee resettlement program for 120 days.

On Monday, Bruce Springsteen spoke out against the decision during a concert in Adelaide, Australia.

"Tonight we want to add our voices to the thousands of Americans who are protesting at airports around our country the Muslim ban and the detention of foreign nationals and refugees," the GRAMMY winner said. "America is a nation of immigrants and we find this anti-democratic and fundamentally un-American."
