Mayor Pugh Leads Baltimore in Suing Trump Administration Over Immigration Policy

The city of Baltimore filed a lawsuit Wednesday against the Trump administration, alleging it “unlawfully and secretly” made a change to immigration law.

The suit, filed in U.S. District Court in Maryland, alleges that the Trump administration has moved to restrict the admission of immigrants applying for a U.S. visa, according to a news release. The release says that the Trump administration amended immigration law to allow consular officers to take into account whether visa applicants or their family members received non-cash benefits for the U.S. government.
