Hundreds of anti-Trump protesters marched on President Trump’s private Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Fla., on Saturday as a demonstration against his executive order on immigration and other policies.

The protest was one of several taking place across the U.S. on Saturday. In Washington, D.C., protestors met at the White House in the morning, eventually moving toward the Supreme Court. Other protestors gathered in Wisconsin, marching on Speaker Paul Ryan’s (R) hometown office.

The demonstrations mark the second consecutive weekend of protests following Trump’s Jan. 27 executive order, which imposed a 90-day ban on citizens from seven predominantly Muslim countries from entering the U.S.

The original order also called for a 120-day moratorium on admitting refugees and an indefinite halt on admitting refugees from Syria.

Federal Judge James Robart, who was appointed by former President George W. Bush, issued an immediate nationwide restraining order on Friday against Trump’s action.
