Sixteen state attorney generals have filed sued challenging the rescission of DACA. 

The states are:

New York

Massachusetts

Washington

Connecticut

Delaware

District of Columbia

Hawaii

Illinois

Iowa

New Mexico

North Carolina

Oregon

Pennsylvania

Rhode Island

Vermont

Virginia

The Complaint includes claims for relief for violation of Equal ProtectionDue Process, the Administrative Procedure Act, and the Regulatory Flexibility Act.

CNN describes the lawsuit as follows:

"A coalition of 16 Democratic and nonpartisan state attorneys general filed suit in New York federal court on Wednesday to stop Trump's sunset of DACA -- the Obama-era program that protected young undocumented immigrants brought to the US as children from being deported -- and they say Trump's comments about Mexicans should be used against him.
The groups laid out five different constitutional arguments against Trump's move, saying it was motivated by discriminatory reasons, that it violated due process by being "fundamentally unfair," and that it violated laws that dictate procedures for federal regulations.
  
The lawyers note that most DACA recipients are of Mexican origin and devote a whole section to inflammatory statements Trump has made about Mexicans, including his attacks on a federal judge of Mexican descent."
