Rep. John Lewis waits it out at the Atl airport as the feds continue to detain at least one green card-holder returning from Iran.
I'm in Battery Park in NYC. Several thousand already gathered here to protest #MuslimBan. "No hate, no fear, immigrants are welcome here."
Holy crap, go Boston!!
Dir of Nat. Intel and Joint Chiefs of Staff removed from the Natl Sec'y Council, but white nationalist Steve Bannon appointed. #Insanity
Acclaimed Iranian director won’t attend Oscars due to "unjust conditions" of Trump executive order
Impromptu legal aid stand @dulles_airport, where lawyers say Customs officers refusing to comply with court orders.
My dad was a rabbi. I like to think, and have reason to think, he'd be giving some fiery sermons condemning #MuslimBan if he were alive rn
Video shared by @ACLU_DC shows growing crowds outside the White House to protest Trump’s refugee ban
If you wonder why CBP is still enforcing the #MuslimBan in defiance of court orders, remember an anti-immigrant zealot runs the agency now
Beginning to think @PfeifferDC is just a water carrier for his hero, Donald Trump, who goes after anyone who says anything mean about him.
We have gotten disturbing reports that @CustomsBorder is refusing to comply with the court order
"When I hear and see Donald Trump, I hear and see an emergency." Well-written piece, Propane Jane, @docrocktex26
Thousands turning out to protest at the White House. Proud! pic via @bmcushing
1. There are 292 Republican members of Congress EIGHT have spoken out against Trump's Muslim ban
Wow--stunning detail from @theintercept here: Those denied entry, unaware of Trump's order, were still charged with breaking immigration law
This is what democracy looks like ️
As you watch this unfold, think of this: what happens if they try to start deporting DACA recipients? Or kick 20 mil off health insurance?
Trump is desecrating American norms. Fight him *every day* & *in every way* - the thousands of Americans in the streets
Immigration officials have informed @DFWAirport that they're releasing travelers detained at DFW, will meet with Dallas mayor @Mike_Rawlings
Customs agents at Dulles told lawyers they were ordered by "upper mgmt" to not provide info/access – that is direct violation of court order
1. The things Trump talks about are very disturbing and worth our attention. But it's also important to focus on what Trump won't talk about
My 1st act as Labour leader was to speak in support of refugees. I will never turn my back on a human in need. Never
At interfaith rally in Teaneck,made our voices loud & clear that we won't stand for refugee ban & discriminatory visa policy against Muslims
when even the airports themselves rise up against you http://kron4.com/2017/01/29/travel-ban-protest-continues-at-sfo-several-california-
We are not going away. Welcome to your 10th day.
@CBP just refused access to four elected representatives
'Breathtaking violation of rights': L.A. city attorney barred from seeing detainees at LAX
White House says court rulings do not halt the thrust of Trump's ban, "restricted travel will remain prohibited."
An honor to raise my voice with thousands of New Yorkers in Battery Park today.
Protesting at #PDX airport at 2pm PT. Join me in the fight to uphold our core values of liberty and justice for ALL. https://www.facebook.com/events/1491359647571510/ …
Muslim ban detainees at JFK Airport are being pressured to revoke legal immigration status, lawyers tell us
So the White House just released a statement stating that they will ignore the order from the federal judge. This is just lawlessness.
We're urging Senate to cancel vote on Sessions atty general nom based on his reported involvement in executive orders signed by Trump today
This is what dictators do. They try to silence independent outlets by encouraging rich friends to buy or close them. We are in a scary place
"Resistance requires discipline. We have two hands. One is to battle. One is to build." @MsPackyetti
The law is clear. The #MuslimBan is illegal. I will introduce a bill this week to immediately overturn this dangerous, hateful order.
I stand with the people gathered across the country tonight defending our values & our Constitution. This is not who we are.
First they came for the Muslims and we said not today motherfucker (placard)
Remember sitting in history, thinking “If I was alive then, I would’ve…” You’re alive now. Whatever you’re doing is what you would’ve done.
What does @SpeakerRyan have to say about the green card holders - the LEGAL immigrants - who are being denied entry to America right now?
#UPDATE: Traffic blocked outside Gate E due to protest at Miami International Airport: http://on.nbc6.com/VjfUGAJ
That Pennsylvania Ave hotel? Protesters like it, too.
If the White House disobeys the federal court orders, we must be prepared to take to the streets to preserve our democracy.
Right now Washington D.C. is packed again with people protesting Trump's unAmerican racist nativism. A new generation is rising. #WeWillWin
We will fight against racism. We will fight against anti-Muslim rhetoric. We will fight against those who will marginalize who we are.
Outside Trump Hotel, heading toward the Capitol. Never seen this kind of thing in DC. Crowd keeps coming & coming, growing bigger & bigger.
Shut/slow down Congress until the order is rescinded, anything less is capitulation #MuslimBan
This appears to be a direct violation of Judge Brinkema's order.
Protest on the steps of the capitol
Trump must be impeached for abusing his power and shredding the Constitution more monstrously than any other President in American history.
The largest #MuslimBan protest is at JFK. New Yorkers, the ones most devastated by 9/11. They are not fooled & you shouldn't be, either.
P.S. My grandparents were immigrants. The woman making us pizza right now is Muslim. And I'm grateful for all of them. #NoBan
Who's at #SFO or heading there? Considering heading there myself...
The level & magnitude of daily protest vs Prez Trump in major cities is simply astonishing. Dem officials will be scrambling to keep up
Liberals who don't speak up, we see you too. We notice your silence, and you are choosing the side of the oppression
Updates from the protests around the country:
Pelosi in letter to House Dems: On Monday House and Senate Dems will "demand the President withdraw his disreputable executive order."
California's Xavier Becerra joins 15 other state attorneys general in statement condemning Pres. Trump's refugee order as "unamerican."
"Nationalism is an infantile disease, the measles of mankind."—Albert Einstein, 1929 http://bit.ly/2jKP3kq
Would Trump prefer protesters gather in front of his new (white) house or his new hotel? How's that conflict of interest feeling today?
Congresswoman @MaxineWaters is here at LAX protest leading the crowd in the chant "no ban, no wall, you build it up we'll tear it down"
@chuckschumer dice que con el apoyo de republicanos puede revocar el polémico veto migratorio de @realDonaldTrump #FindeSemana @UniNoticias
I stand with the people fleeing war and persecution. I stand with the people defending our values #NoBanNoWall
Moments ago, @JudgeClayJ and I greeted travelers who were detained at @DFWAirport since yesterday. We are very sorry.
Our saftey is in the hands of his ego. #ExileTrump
Trudeau says Canada will take refugees banned by U.S. http://www.pbs.org/newshour/rundown/trudeau-canada-refugees-banned-u-s/#.WI5gaL-ly5w.twitter … via @NewsHour
Time to shut down Trump hotels w/protests and make him wish he'd sold his interest...Boycott all companies affiliated with his venal family
No ban. No wall. Not today. Not in our City. Not in our Country. #HeWillNotDivideUs
Top tech leaders condemn Trump immigration ban http://hill.cm/7vLmfKm
Outcry over #Trump’s #MuslimBan continues http://www.msnbc.com/am-joy/watch/outcry-over-trump-s-muslim-ban-continues-865385027594 … via @amjoyshow
.@POTUS statement on "extreme vetting" -- leans on Obama precedents and blames "Muslim ban" terminology on media
The Constitution is nothing without a citizenry demanding that it live up to its stated goals. It won't do that on its own. It never has.
Hoping contempt of court rulings in the works.
.@realDonaldTrump is spreading hate and xenophobia. @LarryHogan is silent #MuslimBan #MDpolitics Your constituents are watching
USA V.P @mike_pence deleted his Tweet DATED 8TH Dec, 2015, that condemned the calls to ban Muslims from entering US. You can join the dots.
If you've seen the news and don't know where to start re. supporting refugees, I highly recommend this crew http://riserefugee.org/
Breaking: NY Attorney General will be formally asking DHS for names of any detained at JFK, I'm told
At LAX. This is what democracy looks like. This will continue until fascist POTUS leaves WH. #Impeachment
It hurts my feelings that the movement for Black lives doesn't inspire this kind of worldwide, bipartisan unity. It sincerely does.
Some terms world leaders have used to describe Trump's refugee ban:
The #WomensMarch may be over, but the fight is just beginning: http://buff.ly/2kCgz88 @Essence #WeWontGoBack
The Governor of Washington just declared #DonaldTrump an enemy of the United States. #MuslimBan #NoMuslimBan #Resist https://www.facebook.com/groopspeak/videos/1098360616958353/ …
ACTION ALERT: 9 people have been released from #JFK, w/200 still DETAINED! Join us at #JFK Terminal 4 Arrivals NOW! #NoBanNoWall #MuslimBan
As context, Copley Square was the scene of the marathon bombing. Bostonians understand terrorism. But they also understand defending rights.
How about fighting some of the ridiculous cabinet appointments Trump is making.
Dear people enforcing these unconscionable and illegal orders: Historically, "I was only following orders" has not been a solid defense.
There is something more important and powerful than all three branches of government. It is you – the people. #BatteryPark
Trump's message all along was to transform hate into racist white nationalism — and everyone except the media knew it. #StopPresidentBannon
In an impassioned speech to protesters on Saturday night, Sen. Cory Booker described President Trump's travel ban as “a crime and a sin”
Need a reason to vote in midterm elections?
"Whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it"
Try again. Go farther. Outright condemn the #MuslimBan and refuse to participate in Trump's advisory council. Otherwise you validate him.
