On Sunday, Healey was one of 17 Democratic attorneys general who signed a letter vowing to "fight" Trump's order.
Four federal judges - in Virginia, Massachusetts, New York and Washington - acted during the weekend to stay implementation of the executive order as tens of thousands of people demonstrated at airports across the country.
Massachusetts, New York, Virginia and Washington have joined the lawsuit against the White House.
BOSTON-Massachusetts will become the second state to sue the federal government over President Trump's executive order barring immigration from seven predominantly Muslim countries.
NY and Virginia attorneys general followed up saying their states were joining similar lawsuits.
"At bottom, what this is about is a violation of the Constitution", Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey said of the order halting travel by people with passports from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen for 90 days, which also stopped resettlement of refugees for 120 days and indefinitely banned Syrian refugees.

The advocacy organization Oxfam has also joined ACLU and Commonwealth of MA in a lawsuit against the executive order.
It's the third lawsuit Healey has been a part of against the president.
But the state's intervention also has broader aims, claiming the enforcement of the executive order in general is unlawful and threatens the "health and wellbeing, both physical and economic" of its residents, and its public universities and colleges in particular.
The Republican governor of MA said Tuesday that he will support the state attorney general's challenge to President Trump's recent executive order on immigration.
"It discriminates against people because of their religion [and] it discriminates against people because of their country of origin".
"By filing this suit today, we are fighting for the principles that have made America a beacon of hope and freedom for the world", she added, saying she hoped other states across the country would do the same, reiterating the sentiments in another tweet.
"Our administration has worked with the Attorney General's office and supports her challenging this action". It also barred travelers, initially including permanent United States residents, who are citizens of Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Yemen and Syria or dual citizens of those countries and another non-US country from entering America.
