Attorney General Eric Schneiderman says he will join the lawsuit against President Trump's new immigration ban.

Schneiderman will officially join Washington State Attorney General Bob Ferguson, Minnesota Attorney General Lori Swanson and fellow attorneys general on Monday.

"President Trump's latest executive order is a Muslim Ban by another name, imposing policies and protocols that once again violate the Equal Protection Clause and Establishment Clause of the United States Constitution," said A.G. Schneiderman. "As the Trump White House has already said, the Administration's latest Muslim Ban seeks to accomplish the same unlawful and unconstitutional outcomes as the original order."

Schneiderman expressed pride in joining other attorneys general to fight "Trump's latest, unconstitutional decree."
