In Boston federal court today, Massachusetts civil liberties lawyers argued that President Trump's executive order on immigration violates the Constitution, and should be permanently overturned.

The case comes at the end of a tumultuous week in Boston, following the president's signing of the ban on Friday night — one that immediately barred visa holders from seven Muslim-majority countries. Tens of thousands of visas have been revoked.
