MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) — Vermont Republican Gov. Phil Scott and Democratic Attorney General T.J. Donovan are going to be releasing proposed legislation opposing President Donald Trump's executive order on immigration.

Scott, Donovan and other members of the governor's newly created Civil Rights and Criminal Justice Cabinet will release details of the proposal Thursday at the Statehouse in Montpelier.

The legislation is meant to address what cabinet members feel is federal government overreach, especially its stated policy to request that state and local law enforcement agencies perform immigration functions for the federal Department of Homeland Security.

Scott has said he hopes Vermont can be an example for the rest of the country.
