Maryland plans to join the lawsuit initiated by Washington State against President Trump’s new immigration plan. Attorney General Brian Frosh says the second immigration plan is still a Muslim ban and that Maryland will join the lawsuit formally on Monday. Frosh says that the ban would harm the state’s universities and the state’s economy and that it’s unwise, illegal and un-American.
AG Brian Frosh’s full statement – “President Trump’s second executive order is still a Muslim ban. The Administration persists in an effort to implement a policy that is inhumane and unconstitutional, but also makes us less safe, not more safe. It makes us less competitive and sends a message to the most talented academics, scientists and engineers around the world that they are not welcome. It will harm Maryland’s universities and our economy. It is unwise, illegal and un-American.”
