Attorney generals from Massachusetts, New York, Oregon and Minnesota have pledged to join litigation efforts against President Trump's revised travel ban. Hawaii will also file its own lawsuit against the White House.
Washington state Attorney General Bob Ferguson (pictured) welcomed support from his counterparts as he again plans to legally challenge President Donald Trump's revised executive order banning nationals from selected majority-Muslim countries from entering the US.

Washington was the first state to sue over the original ban, arguing that it was unconstitutional and hurt the state's businesses and universities. The lawsuit resulted in a Seattle court issuing a nationwide emergency halt on its implementation - a decision later upheld in a federal appeals court. Ferguson said he will argue before the same Seattle judge that his decision against the original ban should also apply to the President's revised action.

"It cannot be a game of whack-a-mole for the court," Ferguson said. "In our view, this new executive order contains many of the same legal weaknesses as the first and reinstates some of the identical policies as the original."
