President Trump has revised his executive order relating to travel into the US from six Muslim-majority countries the order no longer includes Iraq among the countries considered dangerous for immigration or travel visas and the new order has yet to go into effect. That happens Thursday, March 16, and while impacts or subsequent protests at airports can not yet be known, at least one protest has been scheduled in downtown San Francisco on Thursday afternoon.
The protest is scheduled for 4 p.m. Thursday at the federal building on 7th Street, across from the Ninth Circuit building.
The tweet below and this Facebook event are about the only evidence we have of the organized event, which at least via Twitter and Facebook hasn't garnered much interest yet.

Given the outcry that happened at airports across the country during the week that the last travel ban was in effect, including at SFO, should the executive order take effect Thursday without court intervention, the core of the protesting will likely return to the airport.
The state of Washington, where the emergency injunction was originally filed to halt the President's first executive order, filed an amended complaint this week arguing that the revised order is essentially the same as the first one, and was joined by the states of California, Maryland, Massachusetts, New York, and Oregon in the filing. As Reuters reported, the Department of Justice said it would review the complaint and respond, but so far that has not occurred.
As the Associated Press reports, Washington state Attorney General Bob Ferguson has asked a federal judge for a hearing as soon as Wednesday to attempt to halt the executive order once again.
