Daily Feminist Cheat Sheet

“I know, I know / If you could go back you / would walk with Jesus / You would march with King [...] / It would all be clear to you / But people then, just like you / were baffled, had bills / to pay and children they didn’t / understand and they too / were so desperate for normalcy / they made anything normal.”

IYCMI: Friday evening, Trump issued an (unlawful) executive order restricting entry into the United States for Muslims and refugees.

A group of law students and civil rights organizations worked through the night to win a nationwide stay, temporarily halting the removal of lawful immigrants.

If you know of ongoing issues with CBP’s compliance with the nationwide stay — including if you know of people abroad who have been stopped from boarding their flights, or people arriving in the U.S. who have been intimidated into immediately leaving — report it to airportwatch@mailman.yale.edu.

Thousands have protested Trump’s order all across the country. New York taxi drivers went on strike on at JFK Airport on Saturday to show their support of the protests. Uber did not.

The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) filed suit this afternoon on behalf of twenty plaintiffs.

You can support CAIR’s work here. Grimes will match it.

Finally, from the head of the African Union: “The very country to which many of our people were taken as slaves during the transatlantic slave trade has now decided to ban refugees from some of our countries. What do we do?”
