On Friday evening, President Donald Trump signed an executive order banning immigrants from seven majority-Muslim countries from entering the U.S. A long list of musicians have expressed outrage at the order, including Rihanna, Questlove, Neko Case and Win Butler. Some have pointed out the hypocrisy of the decision, while others have called for direct action, including protest, electoral action and even impeachment.

Some are even using social media as a platform to raise money to fight Trump’s anti-immigrant policies. Grimes announced that she would match all donations to the Council for American-Islamic relations up to $10,000. (Donate here.) Sia also announced that she would match donations to the American Civil Liberties Union up to $100,000.

Read some of the reactions from those artists below. Treble stands with all of them in condemning the hateful and xenophobic actions of the Trump administration.
