Trump's executive order, "to ensure that those approved for refugee admission do not pose a threat to the security and welfare of the United States" after additional screening, went into effect Friday and lasts for 120 days.

The US Department of Homeland Security has said in a statement it would "comply with judicial orders" but that President Donald Trump's executive action restricting entry into the country from seven Muslim-majority nations remains in place.

After the order was signed, reports emerged of refugees being detained upon arrival at USA airports and new details continued to surface about the exact scope of who would be impacted by the order.

The American Civil Liberties Union, one of the groups challenging the president's executive order, said it had reportedly received about $24 million in online donations since Saturday. "And that is the main argument against this mean-spirited, ill-conceived, ill-advised executive order". Civil rights lawyers filed motions against the order, which caused a federal judge to grant an emergency stay on January 28 that temporarily stops the deportation of immigrants and refugees under Trump's order, reports The Hill.

Two people were arrested for blocking the roadway. In a nod to certain states and cities that have objected to refugee resettlement, the order also seeks to give state and local jurisdictions a role in deciding whether or not to allow people to live there.
