Washington has become the first state to sue Donald Trump over his ‘un-American and unlawful’ immigration ban.

The state’s attorney general declared that he was suing the President over his temporary order which affects seven countries with majority-Muslim populations.

‘If successful it would have the effect of invalidating the president’s unlawful action nationwide,’ Attorney General Bob Ferguson said at a news conference.

Ferguson was one of 16 state attorneys general who released a statement Sunday calling Trump’s immigration action ‘un-American and unlawful.’
Trump has repeatedly said Friday’s order suspending immigration for citizens of the seven countries for 90 days is aimed at protecting the nation against extremists looking to attack Americans and U.S. interests.
