ANNAPOLIS, Md. - (AP) - Maryland is joining a lawsuit against President Donald Trump's revised travel ban.
Maryland Attorney General Brian Frosh announced in a statement Friday that Maryland plans to join the lawsuit filed by Washington state.
Washington, Maryland, Minnesota, Oregon, New York and Massachusetts plan to file a new complaint challenging the revised travel ban Monday. Washington state Attorney General Bob Ferguson said Thursday he was asking a federal judge to find that his order last month halting the old travel ban applies to the new one, too.
In joining with Washington state, Frosh is using a new authority granted by the state legislature. Fearful of President Trump's policies, the Maryland General Assembly empowered Frosh, a Democrat, to sue the federal government without permission from the state's Republican governor.
