On January 27, 2017, President Donald Trump signed Executive Order 13769, titled Protecting the Nation from Foreign Terrorist Entry into the United States—also known as the Travel Ban. The Executive Order was signed on a Friday at 4:39pm and the text was not released to the press for several hours; however, by Saturday morning, airports across America began to fill with protestors outraged over the order.
