The point here is that a lot of states like Texas use their AG to sue the feds and stave off executioners and so on,We can also use that point now for our side.

Well, what’s sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander. The Democrat AGs of the following 16 states have taken legal action and stood firm against Trump’s Muslim Ban: California, Connecticut, Delaware, the District of Columbia, Hawaii Illinois, Iowa, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Mexico, New York, Minnestoa, North Carolina, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, Washington and Virginia. All-of-us must need to persuade and pressure more of our AGs to stand up to Trump. 
Here’s how:
1. Find out your state AG here or here. Study up on them. Are they Democrats or Republicans? When are they up for reelection? Check out their sites and social media pages to see where they stand on issues.

2. If your AG is from the states above, post on social media, or call or email and thank them for their leadership. 
Here is a general message: “Thank you for opposing Trump’s Muslim Ban. We commend the leadership that our state is taking to protect our refugees and our democratic values.“
3. If they are not from the 16 states above call their office to determine what their position is. You can also research news articles. The AG in Texas, for example, supports the Muslim Ban. If you determine that your AG supports the ban, or has been silent on the issue, then post/email a message such as this:
“We are disappointed that AG [____________] did not support the Amicus Brief signed by the attorneys general of 16 states in opposition to Trump’s Muslim Ban. The State of [__________] should oppose the unconstitutional acts of the Trump Administration and stand with our refugees.”
