DENVER — Activists organized two protests against President Donald Trump’s immigration ban in Denver on Sunday.

Trump signed executive orders Friday barring all persons from certain terror-prone countries from entering the United States for 30 days and barring citizens from seven Muslim-majority countries from entering the U.S. for the next 90 days.

The orders also suspend the admission of all refugees for 120 days.

Protesters gathered at the State Capitol and Denver International Airport on Sunday afternoon.

Dozens of peaceful protesters gathered at the airport Saturday night.

federal judge granted an emergency stay Saturday night for citizens of the seven Muslim-majority countries who have already arrived in the U.S. and those who are in transit, and who hold valid visas, ruling they can legally enter.

The rule was handed down by Judge Ann Donnelly of the U.S. District Court in Brooklyn in response to a lawsuit filed by the American Civil Liberties Union. Donnelly said the risk of injury to detainees was a factor in the decision.

The judge added those at risk of being detained most likely would be those who were traveling when the ban went into effect.
