Four states sue Trump over Muslim ban | Nigeria News Today. Your online Nigerian Newspaper f

Four US states are suing the Trump administration over the president’s executive order banning refugees and travellers from a list of predominantly Muslim countries from entering America.

New York, Massachusetts and Virginia joined Washington state on a growing list of states in launching legal challenges against executive order that wreaked havoc at airports at the weekend

Washington became the first state to sue the White House on Monday.

On Tuesday New York joined a federal lawsuit against Trump’s executive order brought by the American Civil Liberties Union Foundation, the Urban Justice Center and others...

Eric Schneiderman, the New York state attorney general, described the order signed last Friday as unconstitutional, unlawful, and fundamentally un-American

“Virginia has a substantial interest in protecting its public universities and their faculty and students from the academic and fiscal disruption posed by the executive order,” according to the state’s motion filed in the federal court of Alexandria

Massachusetts attorney general Maura Healey said the state was also filing its own case seeking to have the ban struck down.

The executive order is harmful, discriminatory and unconstitutional. It

discriminates on the basis of religion and national origin, Healey said at a press briefing at her office

  1. These Americans suing Trump are very stupid and unreasonable. They should ask themselves why are those muslim refugees not going to Saudi Arabia or Iran( all muslim dominated and rich countries)? They prefer non-mislim countries where they can cause trouble and terror and Saudi will be willing to spend billions of dollars to build mosques in Germany and other EU countries to cater for d spiritual needs of the refugees.

    you are more stupid as those American that sue are better of than you that dont know anything than religion discrimination. You better try and read bible well to know what Christianity is all about. you fool

  3. Mohamed Sanusi.....I don't usually comment on issues like this but your last statement has forced me to.
    You are asking anonymous 10:17 to read his bible well to know what Christianity is all about because it's time to help, love and care for your Islam cohorts but if the reverse were the case, Muslims will not only chase the christians away but they will also butcher them because their religion teaches intolerance, and hatred for people who are not same religion as them. What a shame!!!
