WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The New York attorney general plans to announce a multistate lawsuit on Wednesday to protect recipients of a program that shielded children brought into the United States illegally, a day after President Donald Trump rescinded the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.

New York Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman will discuss the lawsuit at a news conference with immigration advocates, labor unions and James Milliken, the chancellor of City University of New York, Schneiderman's office said in a statement.
