US President Donald Trump fired the acting attorney general, Sally Yates, … after she defied instructions to defend Trump’s executive order banning the entry of refugees and visitors from seven Muslim-majority countries—Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen. … Yates is the first Justice Department official to be fired by a president for defying orders since the infamous Saturday Night Massacre by President Richard Nixon in October 1973, during the Watergate crisis that led ultimately to his forced resignation. Nixon ordered Attorney General Eliot Richardson to fire Watergate special prosecutor Archibald Cox, but Richardson refused and resigned. Deputy Attorney General William Ruckelshaus took the same stance. It was left to the third-ranking official, Solicitor General Robert Bork, to carry out Nixon’s order and fire Cox. The resulting popular outrage led to the beginning of impeachment proceedings against Nixon: here.

Across the United States and internationally, tens of thousands of people are participating in protests to denounce the brutal and illegal anti-Muslim policies imposed over the weekend by the Trump administration. On Monday, the protests spread to the United Kingdom, where many thousands marched in scores of cities and towns to denounce both Trump and British Prime Minister Theresa May. Protests erupted as well in Mexico and Canada. Those marching in opposition to Trump are motivated by genuine outrage and sympathy for the men, women and children caught up in Washington’s anti-immigrant dragnet. At the same time, Trump’s ban on travelers from seven majority-Muslim countries and on refugees from all countries has provoked a bitter political conflict within the US state: here.
