16 States Will Sue Trump Over National Emergency Declaration

California, among other states, are suing Donald Trump's national emergency declaration. California's Attorney General Xavier Becerra said Monday afternoon, “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.”

They are claiming that the separation of powers are being violated, Trump is stealing money from states and taxpayers, and the money is not going to where it is needed.

“And I'll sign the final papers as soon as I get into the Oval Office. And we will have a national emergency, and then we will then be sued, and they will sue us in the 9th Circuit, even though it shouldn't be there,” Trump said, speaking of the largest circuit court, which includes California. “and we will possibly get a bad ruling, and then we'll get another bad ruling. And then we'll end up in the Supreme Court, and hopefully, we'll get a fair shake. And we'll win in the Supreme Court, just like the ban.”

We are waiting to see if the President's wall will be built after these lawsuits. Negotiations are being slowed down, and there is a possibility we may be looking at another government shutdown.
