MADIGAN & 15 OTHER ATTORNEYS GENERAL CONDEMN THE UNCONSTITUTIONAL EXECUTIVE ORDER ON IMMIGRATION, VOW TO UPHOLD CONSTITUTIONPosted by Jack Howser on Sunday, January 29th, 2017 @ 3:56 pm.
Madigan and the attorneys general issued the following statement:
“As the chief legal officers for over 130 million Americans and foreign residents of our states, we condemn President Trump's unconstitutional, unAmerican
Religious liberty has been, and always will be, a bedrock principle of our country and no president can change that truth.
Yesterday, multiple federal courts ordered a stay of the Administration’s dangerous Executive Order. We applaud those decisions and will use all of the tools of our offices to fight this unconstitutional order and preserve our nation’s national security and core values.
We are confident that the Executive Order will ultimately be struck down by the courts. In the meantime, we are committed to working to ensure that as few people as possible suffer from the chaotic situation that it has created.”
Joining Madigan in issuing the statement were attorneys general from: California, Connecticut, the District of Columbia, Hawaii, Iowa, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Mexico, New York, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Vermont, Virginia and Washington.
Apparently Madigan has forgotten that Obama did the same thing with Iranian visas in 2011.
As regards the actual text of the executive order - which isn't a "ban" at all - here it is.
Maybe if Madigan and the AGs of the other states had been doing something to curb illegal immigration from Day 1 of being in office, there wouldn't be this problem....
