Trump signed an executive order on Jan. 27, 2017, banning Syrian refugees and citizens of seven Muslim-majority nations from entering the U.S. The order was met with protests in airports across the country and swift moves by courts to block the ban.
In its most recent form, issued by Trump in September, the ban would have barred certain travelers from Syria, Libya, Iran, Yemen, Chad, Somalia, North Korea, and Venezuela from entering the country. A federal judge blocked the majority of the ban in October, and an appeals court ruled that Trump had exceeded his authority over immigration and violated laws that bar discrimination in issuing visas.
Protesters on Saturday decried the ban—which many have said discriminates against religion—with signs that said “No Muslim Ban” and “Refugees welcome.”

On Jan. 19, the Supreme Court announced it will rule on the controversial travel ban and plans to issue a final ruling by June.
