AG Healey Joins Lawsuit Challenging Trump's Immigration OrderPlay
Attorney General Maura Healey announced Tuesday that Massachusetts will join a lawsuit challenging President Trump's executive order on immigration and refugees. That order restricts immigration from seven predominately Muslim countries, suspends all refugee admission for 120 days, and bars Syrian refugees indefinitely.
"The executive order is harmful, discriminatory, and unconstitutional," Healey said at a press conference this afternoon. "It discriminates on the basis of religion and national origin, denies our residents access to due process and equal protection of the law, and violates federal immigration law."
