The state of Washington is suing President Trump, the Department of Homeland Security, and several high-ranking Trump officials over the Friday night executive order banning refugees and citizens from seven Muslim-majority countries from entering the United States. Ferguson's lawsuit is broader in scope and seeks to invalidate entire sections of the Executive Order nationwide.

The complaint claims that Trump's actions are separating Washington families, harming thousands of state residents, damaging the state economy, hurting Washington-based companies "and undermining Washington's sovereign interest in remaining a welcoming place for immigrants and refugees", Ferguson said.

"The rules of law apply to everyone - including President Trump - and I will use the authority of my office to hold him accountable to it". Gov. Jay Inslee joined Ferguson at a news conference when he announced the lawsuit.

Ferguson argues that the Executive Order violates the U.S. Constitution's guarantee of Equal Protection and the First Amendment's Establishment Clause, infringes individuals' constitutional right to Due Process and contravenes the federal Immigration and Nationality Act.

The stock has been active on the tape, now trading at $47.71, down from yesterday's close by -0.71%. The Company has 847.21 million shares outstanding and 844.25 million shares were floated in market.

The Attorney General also filed a Motion for Temporary Restraining Order seeking an immediate halt to the Executive Order's implementation.

"The fact is that its impact, its cruelty, its clear objective is an unconscionable religious test", Inslee said at the conference. "The clear intent of this executive order is to discriminate against one faith amongst all God's children".

"The person who files the action has to have a dog in the fight; the dog has to be involved in the lawsuit", said Hugh Spitzer, professor at University of Washington School of Law.

They're also likely just the tip of the iceberg. Amazon is also supplying assistance and Expedia, whose CEO Dara Khosrowshahi is an Iranian immigrant and sharply criticized Trump's actions, will be participating as well.

A recent Reuters survey revealed that the cartel achieved 82% compliance, which was well above most market forecasts. WTI was $2.89/bbl cheaper than European benchmark Brent crude on January 31, the widest discount since December 2015.

When asked if the state feared retribution from the Trump administration, both Ferguson and Inslee insisted that they would not be intimidated or bullied into backing down.

Several other state attorneys general, including those from California and NY, have said they are considering whether to take their own legal action.

"President Trump may have his alternative facts, but alternative facts do not work in a courtroom", Inslee said.

This was the case that slammed the breaks on deportations as part of implementing Trump's executive order.
