The rally comes after Trump signed an executive order temporarily barring visitors from seven Muslim-majority countries from entering the U.S. The order also puts a temporary halt on the acceptance of refugees and an indefinite ban on Syrian refugees. A federal judge issued a nationwide restraining order on the executive order while a lawsuit proceeds.
