Photos taken across the country depict the full extent of the outrage caused by the President’s policy, which has been condemned worldwide.
The directive places a 90-day blanket ban on all immigrants and visitors travelling from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Libya – and indefinitely prohibits access to Syrian refugees.
Alongside city-wide demonstrations in Chicago, Detroit, Miami and New York, protesters have also set up outside the White House itself to express their disapproval of the law.
Participants are also protesting against Trump’s plan to build a 1989-mile-long wall across the Mexican border – one of the cornerstones of his election campaign.
Social media users are using the hashtag #NoBanNoWall to make their opposition heard.
The President has been widely condemned for the order.
Hundreds of thousands protested across the US.
Demonstrators also came out against the Trump's plan to build a wall on the Mexican border.
One of the largest protests took place at Battery Park in lower Manhattan, with the Statue of Liberty in sight – a longtime symbol of welcome to US shores.
Democratic senator Charles Schumer of New York told the crowd Trump’s order was un-American and ran counter to the country’s core values.
He said: “What we are talking about here is life and death for so many people.
Protesters held placards denouncing the policy.
Some waved placards supporting Muslims in the US and in countries subject to the ban.
“I was not rest until these horrible orders are repealed.”
Thousands of protesters in Washington rallied at Lafayette Square, across from the White House, in the second straight weekend of protests at the capital.
They chanted: “No hate, no fear, refugees are welcome here.”
Citizens chanted to express their disapproval of the ban.
Crowds gathered in major cities across the country.
Washington was a scene of protest activity last weekend, when hundreds of thousands of women marched against Trump’s presidency – with dozens more taking place worldwide.
Trump defended the order in a statement on Sunday, and said the US would resume issuing visas to all countries once secure policies were put in place over the next 90 days.
People held placards in support of immigration.
