Coalition of Mostly Blue States Sues Trump Over Border Wall Action

 The attorneys general of 16 states have filed a federal lawsuit to block the Trump administration from using a national emergency declaration to appropriate about $6.6 billion to build a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border. All 16 of the AGs are Democrats, and all but four of the plaintiff states also have Democratic governors and Democrat-led legislatures. Maryland has a Republican governor, while Michigan and Virginia have GOP-controlled legislatures, and Minnesota has a Republican-led Senate.
