Today’s Resistance: Today, I preordered the picture above from artist Christian Ward (http://cadenceselect.bigcartel.com/product/unity-a-charitable-print-by-christian-ward). All proceeds go to the ACLU. Thousands continued to protest at airports around the United States after news broke that individuals were still being detained, despite the judicial order handed down yesterday. Some of the detained were citizens, largely children, including an 18-month-old at Dallas Fort-Worth. The ACLU continues to send pro bono attorneys to airports throughout the U.S., working in airport McDonalds and floors, trying to release detainees. This work will only be possible with continued support from Resistors.
POTUS Today: The administration walked back its executive order in part. John F. Kelly, the secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, said that those with green cards from affected countries will not be prevented from returning to the U.S. No other part of the order was challenged.
POTUS authorized his first military action today, a dawn raid in southern Yemen, which saw 1 U.S. commando, 14 militants, and around 10 women and children killed according to medics on scene. POTUS called the operation a success.
