More than a dozen states have launched petitions asking President-elect Donald Trump to issue them green cards to their citizens in the event he leaves office.
A federal court in New York is expected to rule in the coming weeks on the issue, and Trump has signaled he would welcome the chance to set the legal standard for a wide range of immigrant and refugee applications.
Trump has also said he would not oppose issuing citizenship to people living in the United States illegally.
But in a recent interview, Trump said he is “not going to be issuing a blanket green card to everybody.”
The Trump campaign did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, has also been tapped to serve as chief of staff to the incoming president.
A spokesman for Kushner did not respond to multiple requests for comment about the petition.
Several states are also asking Trump to release their voter rolls and other data, according to The Hill, which first reported the petitioning states.
A number of other states are planning to release the information as well, The Hill reported.
The Trump transition team did not reply to a question from The Hill about whether the campaign plans to release data on the petitions.
Several other states have already released their voter roll data.
The states include Florida, Illinois, Iowa, Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Wisconsin, The Associated Press reported.
In Wisconsin, officials have not released their data to The Associated News.
The data will be used to track the citizenship applications of people who applied for green cards but did not receive a response from the state.
The AP reported the state’s chief election official was told that his office will release the data as soon as possible.
In Michigan, officials are not releasing the data but said they plan to.
Trump is also facing criticism for what some critics have called his unwillingness to support more refugees and immigrants, even as he has pledged to help them find a home.
The U.S. refugee crisis, which has been exacerbated by the mass migration of millions of people from Central and South America, has led to the sharpest spike in deaths and violent crime in decades.
The influx of refugees and their relatives into the United Kingdom has also raised questions about the safety of people seeking asylum in the U.K.
