On Friday, President Donald Trump signed an executive order that “protects foreign terrorist entry into the United States.” It’s also been casually coined as the “Immigration Ban” based on the order’s details in Section 3, which “[suspends] entry into the United States, as immigrants and nonimmigrants, of such persons for 90 days from the date of this order (excluding those foreign nationals traveling on diplomatic visas, North Atlantic Treaty Organization visas, C-2 visas for travel to the United Nations, and G-1, G-2, G-3, and G-4 visas).”
Overall, the majority response (that are getting the most coverage) are critics of the order. Social media movements have been calling for business boycotts based on their public statements (or lack of) regarding this ban. The businesses who’ve received the most attention since Friday’s announcement has been Lyft, Uber and Starbucks. Lyft and Starbucks have publically disapproved the executive order while Uber’s CEO is still working on his relationship with the President.
In Michigan, there have been protests at the Detroit Metro Airport that are mirroring gatherings at other airports around the country.

Meanwhile, fellow Wayne State students, like Mayssa Masri, are using their freedom of speech to boycott the Immigration Ban right on campus.
