Protesters take to Sea-Tac and airports around the country – and Washington state goes to court – over President Trump's executive order restricting travel to the U.S. from seven majority-Muslim nations.

Seattle votes to take its money elsewhere over the Dakota Access Pipeline and floats a new approach to homeless encampments around the city. 

And UC Berkeley cancels an appearance by Breitbart editor Milo Yiannopoulos over security concerns, sparking debate over free speech on campus.

Listen to the live discussion Fridays at noon and join the conversation on Twitter at #KUOWwir.
