Following President Donald Trump’s executive orders restricting travel from seven Muslim-majority nations on Friday, a number of protests have strung up across the country, under the banner #MuslimBan.

Earlier today, protests outside of New York City’s JFK airport came after passengers from affected countries with Visas were stopped at customs and were not permitted to enter the country.

On Twitter, ThinkProgress associate editor Adrienne Varkiani listed a number of protests that are being held today, or will be held in the coming days, organized by those who helped organize last week’s Women’s March protests, as well as groups such as Americans for Refugees & Immigrants, SURJ Northern Virginia, Resistance SF, Reclaim Philadelphia, SEIU California, and others.

Thus far, protests are being organized outside of major international airport terminals, Federal buildings, and public places in New York City, New York; Newark, New Jersey; Washington, DC; Boston, Massachusetts; Minneapolis, Minnesota; San Francisco, California; Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; Los Angeles, California; San Diego, California; Seattle, Washington; Denver, Colorado; Portland, Oregon; Chicago, Illinois; Atlanta, Georgia; Salt Lake City, Utah; Detroit, Michigan; and Omaha; Nebraska. Others are expected to join the list. Another protest will take place outside of the White House.
