New York Attorney General Blasts Trump For ‘Muslim Ban 2’

New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman is planning to battle new travel restrictions President Donald Trump issued Monday.

Schneiderman called the new order “MuslimBan2” and wrote on Twitter that he’ll see President Trump in court.

The new order freezes America’s refugee program and stops new visas for nationals from six Muslim-majority countries: Iran, Syria, Somalia, Sudan, Yemen and Libya.

In February Schneiderman and 17 other Attorneys General filed amicus briefs to support Washington State’s lawsuit against the first travel ban imposed by President Trump.
