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?

Immigration officials have informed that they're releasing travelers detained at DFW, will meet with Dallas mayor


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

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Shut/slow down Congress until the order is rescinded, anything less is capitulation


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 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.

There is something more important and powerful than all three branches of government. It is you – the people.


Trump's message all along was to transform hate into racist white nationalism — and everyone except the media knew it.

"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 and refuse to participate in Trump's advisory council. Otherwise you validate him.
