Minority activists discuss planning for Trump's unpredictable executive orders

Minority activists discuss planning for Trump’s unpredictable executive orders

This segment originally aired Feb. 6, 2017, on VICE News Tonight on HBO.

The beginning of Trump’s presidency has included numerous drastic policy initiatives, most in the form of executive orders. The orders come with little warning and with each comes an indication of another.

The suspense has put the community of interest groups, who fight for progressive causes, on high alert. And the seemingly constant barrage of orders enacted rapidly with expansive implications has created yet another obstacle for activists — exhaustion.

VICE News Correspondent Evan McMorris-Santoro checked in with some of the sleep deprived advocates prepared to mobilize at a moment’s notice to challenge what they consider unjust orders.
