Alabama's Attorney General Supports President's Immigration Order

Tuesday, March 28, 2017

 


Alabama’s Attorney General joins other states in support of the President’s recent immigration order. Attorney General Steven Marshall says that Alabama joined with thirteen other states today to file a legal brief in support of President Trump’s executive order that temporarily restricts the admission of foreign nationals from six countries that pose a security risk to the United States. The order has been ruled unconstitutional by a Maryland Federal Court and the administration is appealing that ruling. Marshall says that the brief argues that those who oppose the order are trying to apply constitutional rights to non-citizens who are not in this country. He calls that theory an “extraordinary extension of rights to nonresident aliens who do not possess such rights under the U.S. Constitution”.
