Inside The Nationwide Protests Against Trump's Executive Order

Photos show thousands of demonstrators taking to the streets to defend those affected by the travel ban.

Protesters gathered in at least a dozen U.S. cities on Sunday in response to President Donald Trump’s executive order banning refugees and travelers from seven majority-Muslim countries.

The demonstrations followed impromptu protests at several major airports on Saturday night, after Customs and Border Protection officials detained people affected by the executive order who had arrived in the U.S.
