Posters from protests of Executive Order 13769 held at SFO on January 28-29, 2017.
On January 27, 2017, President Donald Trump signed Executive Order 13769, titled “Protecting the Nation from Foreign Terrorist
Entry into the United States.” The order lowered the number of refugees to be admitted into the United States in 2017 to 50,000,
suspended the U.S. Refugee Admissions Program (USRAP) for 120 days, suspended the entry of Syrian refugees indefinitely, directed
some cabinet secretaries to suspend entry of those whose countries do not meet adjudication standards under U.S. immigration
law, and included exceptions on a case-by-case basis. Homeland Security lists these countries as Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia,
Sudan, Syria, and Yemen.
