How the protest against Trump’s refugee ban unfolded at Sea-Tac

The demonstration mirrored others at airports nationwide, following Trump’s executive action barring entry to the U.S. for immigrants from seven Muslim countries and all refugees. Shortly before midnight, police began detaining protesters at the local airport.

What you need to know:

Around 4:45 p.m. Friday, Trump signed an executive order to suspend entry of all refugees for 120 days, bar Syrian refugees indefinitely and block U.S. entry for 90 days for citizens of seven Muslim-majority countries: Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen.
The order quickly reverberated across the U.S. and the world. Some people on flights found themselves detained upon arrival.
Activists, politicians and others gathered at airports, including Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, nationwide to denounce the policy.
A federal judge in New York blocked part of the president’s order Saturday evening.
By early Saturday evening, six people had been detained at Sea-Tac, according to a Port of Seattle official. Of those, two were released and allowed to enter the U.S., while four were to be sent back to their place of departure. A U.S. District Court judge granted a stay to prevent two of the four from being sent away.
Shortly before midnight, police began detaining protesters at the local airport. Some officers wore riot gear.
