nearvideo trump can veto legislation that blocks a national state of emergency Declaration
The White house, the President received the Declaration, the funds, defended to the construction of the border wall and says trump-protection “guarantees”; John Roberts reports.
President Trump on Tuesday mocked California for his “error when you Express project”, as he fired again on a multi-state lawsuit, the conversion of his Declaration of a national state of emergency on the southern border.
“As I predicted, 16 States, led mainly by Open-border Democrats and the Radical Left have filed a lawsuit, in which, of course, of the 9. Circuit! California, the state that seems to be a waste of billions of dollars wasted for your out-of-control (Fast) train, with no hope of completion, in batch!” he tweeted.
NEW YORK, CALIFORNIA, 14 OTHER STATES TO SUE TRUMP IN THE NINTH CIRCUIT ON THE EMERGENCY DECLARATION
Trump was referring to both the lawsuit and the California high-speed rail project from Los Angeles to San Francisco that was cancelled last week amid delays and cost overruns. The $77 billion project will dwarf the cost of a wall on the border-estimated at $20-25 billion.
“The failed fast train project in California, where the cost of the world overruns are always a record-setting, is a hundred times more expensive than the much-needed wall!” he tweeted.
The lawsuit, filed Monday by the attorneys General of California, New York and 14 other States in the Ninth Circuit, challenges Trump’s announcement on Friday of a national emergency declared-over the border to safety-a move that allows him to potentially access more resources for the proposed wall on the southern border.
The lawsuit is seeking to prevent an injunction that Trump the move of billions of dollars from the military design to the limit without the Express consent of Congress. The suit also asks to explain to a court that Trump’s actions are illegal, argue that Trump showed a “blatant disregard of the fundamental rights, separation of powers principles rooted in the Constitution of the United States,” violation of the Constitution’s Presentment and medium-clauses, the expenditure for the state.
The litigation also includes allegations that Trump against the National Environmental Policy Act, from the planning to the construction of the wall, the possible impact on the environment, reports without first completing the necessary environmental impacts.

“President Trump treated the rule of law with contempt,” California Attorney General Xavier Becerra said on Monday. “He knows there is no limit to the crisis, he knows his emergency Declaration, unjustified, and he admits that he is likely to lose this case in court.”
Trump had previously predicted that the resistance to his explanation would come by the Ninth Circuit, a court he had problems with. The San Francisco-based circuit has long been a legal stumbling block for conservative policy, and the White house is trying to, the appointment of conservative judges to thin out the liberal ranks on the square. Last year, Trump bypassed traditional protocols and ignored the concerns of the state, the Democratic politicians to nominate a prominent conservative for the Ninth Circuit.
