President Donald Trump signed an executive order this weekend, which bars citizens from seven Muslim-majority countries from entering the US for a period of 90 days. Trump has stated that this "extreme vetting" is to "keep radical islamic terrorists out of the US".
Within hours of Trump signing the order two dozen individuals were detained upon arrival into the USA, and the Department of Homeland Security confirmed that the order would also have the effect of banning green card holders from seven countries from re-entering the U.S.
Thousands turned up to protest at JFK airport this weekend and opponents of the "extreme vetting" have vowed to launch a legal challenge on two fronts, arguing that the blanket ban violated the fifth amendment right to due process. They will also argue that its preferential treatment of Christians over Muslims violated the first amendment on freedom of religion.
Celebrities have turned out in force to speak out against the ban, with some marching. See in the gallery above what your favourite stars are saying.
