After President Donald Trump hastily signed an executive order on Friday, temporarily banning immigration from 7 muslim-majority nations and indefinitely banning refugees from Syria, airports descended into chaos as they scrambled to implement an order they had no prior notice of. Lawful visa holders were detained at airports. This led to protests erupting around the U.S. and the ACLU challenging this decision.

Federal judges in New York, Virginia and Massachusetts then ordered a temporary halt to the deportation of people who had arrived in the US with valid visas. After these legal decisions, and pressure from the American people, Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly released a statement reversing part of the the executive order. Permanent residents, including green card holders, were now allowed to enter the United States.

While some elected officials protested with their constituents or spoke out against the ban, others remained silent. Here is a list of where every United States Senators and Governors, with their contact information included, stands on the Muslim ban implemented by President Trump.

The protests surged throughout the weekend. Here’s a look at the nationwide movement:
