According to Reuters, the New York state attorney general said on Friday that Twenty states have filed a motion to block President Donald Trump’s method of funding a border wall by diverting federal funds through a national emergency declaration.
New York Attorney General Letitia James said in a Twitter post, “This wall is unnecessary, and an abuse of power that will take away resources that could be used to help Americans across our nation.”
The President declared a national emergency after Congress refused to fund the wall.
Many legal experts say the move is unconstitutional because Congress is responsible for creating the federal government’s budget.
