A busy week in Washington started off with protests at Dulles International Airport and in front of the Supreme Court against President Donald Trump’s immigration executive order. Protests made it into the halls of Congress as well, as Senate Democrats boycotted several hearings for Trump’s Cabinet nominees. 

Trump made his pick for the vacant seat on the Supreme Court — Neil Gorsuch, a U.S. Court of Appeals judge on the 10th Circuit based in Denver.

Here is the entire week in photos:
