Protest every day

Direct action is all that's left right now. It won't always win. But every little thing people can to to gum up the works helps. Today is a win. Tomorrow may not be.
WASHINGTON — A federal judge blocked part of President Trump’s executive order on immigration on Saturday evening, ordering that refugees and others trapped at airports across the United States should not be sent back to their home countries. But the judge stopped short of letting them into the country or issuing a broader ruling on the constitutionality of Mr. Trump’s actions.
Get ready to protest every thing every day. Or whatever it is you can do, as long as people show up, there's a chance to stop some of this.

That's going to change a bit when we move from the Trump-issues-a-legally-and-logistically-questionable-edict-a-day phase and into the Congress-passes-terrible-laws phase. But, for now, it's possible to beat some of the bullshit back. But it will still take sustained deliberate effort.
