President Donald Trump’s revamped travel ban is already seeing resistance from attorneys general across the country, and now New York is set to join the fray.

New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman on Thursday announced he will be joining a lawsuit in the Western District of Washington against the new immigration executive order, signed by Trump on Monday, March 6, 2017.

Washington State Attorney General Bob Ferguson and Minnesota Attorney General Lori Swanson and other attorneys general filed papers on Thursday in an attempt to transfer a national stay issued by the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals on the first executive order onto the new one. Schneiderman's office said he will formally join the lawsuit on Monday. 

"President Trump’s latest executive order is a Muslim ban by another name, imposing policies and protocols that once again violate the Equal Protection Clause and Establishment Clause of the United State Constitution," Schneiderman said in a statement. 

Schneiderman said he believes the new executive order aims to "accomplish the same unlawful and unconstitutional outcomes as the original order."
