Trump Airport Protests Live Blog: Protesters across country to challenge Muslim ban
On Saturday, protests erupted at airports nationwide after President Donald Trump's executive order banning immigrants and refugees from seven Muslim-majority countries left many people detained in immigration limbo or unable to get back into the United States.
