Sixteen states sue Trump over national emergency and HERE’S the full list…

Fifteen states have joined California in their lawsuit over Trump’s national emergency and the news is making waves.

None of you will be shocked by this however, but I thought you’d want to know which states are involved in the lawsuit:

  1. California
  2. Colorado
  3. Connecticut
  4. Delaware
  5. Hawaii
  6. Illinois
  7. Maine
  8. Maryland
  9. Michigan
  10. Minnesota
  11. Nevada
  12. New Jersey
  13. New Mexico
  14. New York
  15. Oregon
  16. Virginia


Not really any shockers on the list.

They are claiming in this lawsuit that Trump is violating the separation of powers:

The group of states, led by California Attorney General Xavier Becerra, filed the lawsuit in the US District Court for the Northern District of California.

“We’re going to try to halt the President from violating the Constitution, the separation of powers, from stealing money from Americans and states that has been allocated by Congress, lawfully,” Becerra told CNN’s Kate Bolduan Monday.

It’s ironic. I don’t remember any of these states challenging Obama when he lawlessly passed DACA, which actually was illegal because it wasn’t based on any statutory law.

But when lawfully Trump declares a national emergency – based on actual statutory law – they all go nuts about it.

Hypocrites!

Leftists….

“Dozens” of protesters stormed and occupied the National Border Patrol Museum in Texas over the weekend, vandalizing the building’s displays, including a wall honoring fallen Customs and Border Protection Officers.

Perhaps CA will go bankrupt after paying out for the endless lawsuits they have brought against the President …

That’s not quite 1/3 of the states suing. Nothing compared to the numbers that sued over Obamacare that the courts upheld. Thank you, Chief Judas Roberts for that.

Texas joined this Union because of the Constitution. It was a sacred compact but more importantly, a contract. Washington DC has failed to protect Texas under that contract and violated that contract in multiple ways. The federal government has not honored its many obligations. It has put Texas in danger in more than one way. Texas needs to secede and get the hell out of this unwholly contract.

16 Democrat Governors, 16 lawsuits. Imagine what could be accomplished if Republicans stuck together and backed the de facto leader of the party, POTUS.

And most of these states are not on the border and aren’t having their state invaded.

I think we should skip putting a wall between California and Mexico and just build a wall between California and the rest of the US!

Seems like most of those states would lack “standing” as far as the border goes.

Since an Emergency has been declared, I can’t see how progress can be stopped by the Courts until a ruling is made. It would be the height of absurdity to allow the Courts to stop a response to an emergency before the ruling. Of course Dems are Evil domestic enemies of the Constitution so I wouldn’t put it past them to try.

These states are STEALING money from AMERICANS every day and using it to aid and harbor ILLEGAL ALIENS. It needs to STOP! Cut off the flow of money to sanctuary states, now.

Most of them are SANCTUARY states or have swaths of cities in them harboring ILLEGAL ALIENS. Quite honestly, Mr Becera, I would rather my tax dollars go toward defending our borders and building a wall to keep out those you chose to defend that are in our country ILLEGALLY.

Good! Let’s get this through the motions.
The money from the declaration should arive when the other money is used up.

Seems like every action Trump takes is met with a lawsuit. There should be a limit to how many frivolous lawsuits these states can make before losing this privilege for some time.

There’s not one single southern state on the list unless you count Virginia. Virginia being ruined by the large growing population around DC. VA legislature did stop the evil Representative Tran and depraved Governor Northam from carrying out their diabolical plans.

Wonder how many illegals there are in Hawaii? Bet most all are visa overstays since Hawaii has a huge water border around it.

They did not support Trump especially New York and California so they can have all the illegals and let them pay for them; Trump should do nothing for them especially when their mayors and Governors go to Washington with their cups for alms.

These liberal states also gladly offer their defenseless children to Planned Parenthood butchers. Instead of fighting to keep the butchers out, they provide a welcome mat. Only natural they defend lawbreakers.

Despite their rhetoric, the leaders of these states care absolutely nothing about the Constitution.
Thankfully the Virginia legislature did stop the evil Representative Tran and its depraved Governor Northam from carrying out infanticide.

The full list of 16 states.

Who knew there were that many Hondurans and Guatemalans walking towards Hawaii? That trip may take a little while.

In other words, the usual suspects.

The ninth district court does not have jurisdiction because the wall is going up in Texas. That will fall to the more conservative fifth district court.

The separation of powers issue is very important to the Left, they don’t believe anyone should be able to separate power from them.

Considering the National Emergency follows the statute written by congress I’m not seeing the separation of powers issue.
