15 Photos Show The Massive Protests Against Trump's “Muslim Ban” In Cities And Airports Across The US

-

On Friday, President Donald Trump signed an executive order banning refugees and barring visa and green card holders from seven Muslim-majority countries. Right after the order, travelers from those countries faced the immediate consequences: Authorities detained dozens of legal U.S. residents at New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport, Chicago's O'Hare International Airport, Washington Dulles International Airport, and other airports.

Following these events, protesters sprung into action on Saturday. They occupied airport terminals and expressed solidarity with immigrants. Here are 15 powerful photos from the protests.
