SEATAC -- Hundreds of protesters marched inside Sea-Tac International Airport Saturday after word got out that several people were detained or sent back due to President Donald Trump's executive order banning the entry of immigrants from seven nations.

The protest came just hours after Governor Jay Inslee, Seattle Mayor Ed Murray, and other local elected officials expressed their dismay for the ban, which was called "reckless."

The demonstration at Sea-Tac is just one of many protests which took place at airports across the United States including in New Jersey, San Francisco, Portland, Oregon, Denver, Colorado, and Dallas.

Protests are scheduled Sunday in Orlando, Boston, Philadelphia, Atlanta, Seattle, Washington, and Chicago, mostly at airports.
