RALEIGH -- State Attorney General Josh Stein says he'll sue President Donald Trump over his executive Oorder on immigration if he needs to.

Tuesday afternoon, Stein said protecting North Carolinians is his top concern, even if that means taking on President trump and his recent executive order clamping down on immigration and refugees practices.

"I can sue to protect North Carolinians so that if there are North Carolinians who are suffering because of this travel ban, and it's very ham handed way in which it was written and being administered. Then I could come in on behalf of the people of North Carolina,”  said Stein.

Stein says several folks in our state could be impacted by the ban, including foreign exchange students wanting to travel outside of the U.S. to visit family.
