Minnesota sues federal government over immigration ban

Minnesota’s attorney general is joining other states in a lawsuit against the federal government over Donald Trump’s immigration ban.

Rachel E. Stassen-Berger of the Saint Paul Pioneer Press:

The federal suit, first filed by Washington state, alleges that Trump’s order banning refugees and others from seven majority-Muslim countries violates the equal protection, establishment and due process clauses of the U.S. Constitution as well as the federal Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965, Swanson’s office said. It is one of several legal challenges filed since Trump on Friday signed the order, which has also prompted large protests in Minnesota and elsewhere.
