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

Ferguson and members of his staff were joined by Gov. Jay Inslee, who applauded peaceful demonstrations against the order and statements of opposition from religious leaders of many faiths.
The American Trucking Associations says it's still unclear how Trump's latest order will affect trucking regulations. As a result, many Americans, immigrants, and refugees are understandably anxious about how Trump utilizing this type of presidential "power" will change things in the future.
On Saturday, a federal judge granted an emergency stay for people who have already arrived in the United States and those who were now on their way.
An element that is unclear from the order is the granularity of the term "regulation" or "rule" - the definition provides that the terms are defined as "an agency statement of general or particular applicability and future effect created to implement, interpret, or prescribe law or policy or to describe the procedure or practice requirements of an agency".
Trump's immigration ban, the lawsuit says, "is separating Washington families, harming thousands of Washington residents, damaging Washington's economy, hurting Washington-based companies, and undermining Washington's sovereign interest in remaining a welcoming place for immigrants and refugees".
Trump also has said he would ask the Pentagon to present recommendations for strengthening the nation's Cyber Command, as well as build up the country's offensive capabilities in cyberspace. But since then several media outlets, including the Post, reported that Trump would not be signing the order today after all. But one of the major concerns that surfaced over the weekend was how a judicial ruling might be enforced if law enforcement agencies at airports (and elsewhere) follow orders from the executive branch instead. In 83% of them, the courts ruled in favor of the president.
"Hopefully it won't come to that", Washington Solicitor General Noah Purcell told The Stranger.
This order demands the prompt repeal of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, beginning with all relevant federal agencies taking action to minimize the act's "economic burden".
"We're the people's attorney", Ferguson said.
