13 States File Lawsuit Over Trump's 'National Emergency'

Source: Political Wire

California Attorney General Xavier Becerra told NBC News that California and a dozen other states are filing a lawsuit challenging President Trump’s national emergency declaration.

Said Becerra: “The president admitted that there’s not a basis for the declaration, he admitted there’s no crisis at the border, he’s now trying to rob funds that were allocated by Congress legally to the various states and people of our states.”

He added: “The separation of powers is being violated, we’re going to go out there and make sure that Donald Trump cannot steal money from the states and people who need them, since we paid the taxpayer dollars to Washington, D.C. to get those services.”

10. So far -

California, Colorado, New Mexico, Oregon, Minnesota, New Jersey, Hawaii, Maine and Connecticut. I expect that Washington State and possibly here in PA (since our AG is a Democrat) will join.

States file federal lawsuit claiming Trump’s national emergency declaration is unconstitutional

By Washington Post Staff
February 18 at 7:41 PM

A coalition of 16 states went to federal court on Monday, seeking a preliminary injunction to thwart President Trump’s attempt to circumvent Congress and shuffle federal money to pay for a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border.

The lawsuit was filed in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California, a court that has ruled against other Trump policies in the past.

This is a developing story. It will be updated.
