SALEM, Ore. (AP) — Emphasizing ways in which Oregon is reliant on immigrants, the state has told a federal court it wants to join Washington state's lawsuit against President Donald Trump's immigration ban.

State Treasurer Tobias Read said much of Oregon's $92 billion investment portfolio, more than 19 million shares, are held in technology companies that have expressed alarm at the likely impacts of Trump's Executive Order on their businesses.

In the motion filed late Wednesday by Attorney General Ellen Rosenblum, Read said Trump's order would harm that portfolio, the state's credit ratings and its economic health.

A senior Oregon Health Authority official said the immigration ban, which has been put on temporary hold due to Washington's lawsuit, would make it harder to have foreign doctors work in underserved areas of the state.
