President Donald Trump’s executive order late Friday afternoon temporarily barring refugees from the U.S. (and refugees from Syria indefinitely) and citizens from seven predominantly Muslim countries sparked large protests this weekend in Copley Square and at Logan Airport.

These are photos from the larger protest in Copley, which drew approximately 20,000.

Key parts of the order have either been tweaked by the Trump administration or stayed by federal judges, including the part that would have banned even those with valid visas and refugee statuses.
