(Reuters) - Attorneys general from 16 U.S. states, including California, New York and Pennsylvania, issued a joint statement on Sunday condemning President Donald Trump’s executive order restricting immigration from seven Muslim-majority countries.

“We are committed to working to ensure that as few people as possible suffer from the chaotic situation that it has created,” the statement said.
