NEW YORK - Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman issued the following statement:

"I will do everything in my power to help those who have been victimized by President Trump's discriminatory and dangerous executive action.

"My staff has been in contact with lawyers for the detained refugees at JFK Airport and I have directed attorneys in my office to provide whatever legal assistance possible to them. 

"President Trump's executive action against war refugees represents a new low in modern American foreign policy and it is incumbent on us to fight back."
