16 States File Suit Over 'Fake Emergency Declaration' to Block Trump 'From Unilaterally Robbing Taxpayer Funds'

September 17, 2020 0 By HearthstoneYarns

As people took to the streets in hundreds of communities across the United States on Monday to protest President Donald Trump’s “constitutionally illegitimate” national emergency declaration, 16 state attorneys general filed suit to challenge Trump’s latest move to build a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.

“Today, on Presidents Day, we take President Trump to court to block his misuse of presidential power. We’re suing President Trump to stop him from unilaterally robbing taxpayer funds lawfully set aside by Congress for the people of our states,” California Attorney General Xavier Becerra, a Democrat who is leading the coalition, declared in a statement late Monday.

“President Trump treats the rule of law with utter contempt. He knows there is no border crisis, he knows his emergency declaration is unwarranted, and he admits that he will likely lose this case in court. He is willing to manipulate the Office of the Presidency to engage in unconstitutional theatre performed to convince his audience that he is committed to his ‘beautiful’ border wall,” Becerra added. “For most of us, the Office of the Presidency is not a place for theatre.”
