Detractors will gather at San Diego’s Lindbergh field today to hold a protest over Donald Trump’s recent restrictive immigration executive orders.

Many have gathered at other airports around the country in opposition to Trump’s recent decree banning Muslims and other immigrants from the country.

Travelers en route to the United States have found themselves ushered into holding departments as they disembark from flights and ships traveling from any of the seven countries Trump has deemed a threat to national security.

The ban also affect travelers who hold asylum in the United States and have green cards. People are being detained and questioned, fearing they will either be housed in detention facilities for months or deported.

Federal Judges and equal rights organizations have stepped forward to try and overturn the ban or assist those caught in the crossfire.

The Department of Defense issued a statement Sunday saying they will uphold the President’s orders to the fullest.

The Department of Homeland Security will continue to enforce all of President Trump’s Executive Orders in a manner that ensures the safety and security of the American people.

President Trump’s Executive Orders remain in place—prohibited travel will remain prohibited, and the U.S. government retains its right to revoke visas at any time if required for national security or public safety.

President Trump’s Executive Order affects a minor portion of international travelers, and is a first step towards reestablishing control over America's borders and national security.

The protest at Lindbergh Field will begin at 5 pm in front of terminal two.

According to the Facebook event page over two-thousand people have shown interest in going, and 814 have said they will attend.
