WASHINGTON (Reuters) - New York joined a lawsuit against President Donald Trump's executive order stopping immigrants from seven majority-Muslim countries from entering the United States, with state Attorney General Eric Schneiderman calling the order "unconstitutional, unlawful, and fundamentally un-American."
New York will join a lawsuit brought by the American Civil Liberties Union Foundation, the Urban Justice Center and others.
Trump's directive put a 120-day hold on allowing refugees into the country, an indefinite ban on refugees from Syria and a 90-day bar on citizens from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen.
