(KRON)—California lawyers are suing President Trump over his executive order suspending visas and immigration benefits without the approval of Congress.

The lawsuit was filed on Saturday which is a day after the president signed the executive order. The president’s order bans those who are from seven Muslim-majority countries from coming into the country for 90 days.

The document states Trump violated the Constitution as well as laws and treaties of the United States. The lawyers claim Trump did not do his job by protecting the civil rights of those not only living in the state of California, but also the United States.

President Trump is accused of suspending visas and immigration benefits for people who have a certain ethnicity and religious beliefs.
