California led 15 other states in a lawsuit to block President Donald Trump from building a border wall through the declaration of a national emergency.

California Attorney General Xavier Becerra made the announcement of the lawsuit on Monday, which coincides with Presidents Day.

“Today, on Presidents Day, we take President Trump to court to block his misuse of presidential power,” Becerra said.

He accused the president of being “willing to manipulate the Office of the Presidency to engage in unconstitutional theater performed to convince his audience that he is committed to his ‘beautiful’ border wall.

“We’re suing President Trump to stop him from unilaterally robbing taxpayer funds lawfully set aside by Congress for the people of our states,” he concluded.

Here are the 15 other states that joined the lawsuit:

  • Colorado
  • Connecticut
  • Delaware
  • Hawaii
  • Illinois
  • Maine
  • Maryland
  • Michigan
  • Minnesota
  • Nevada
  • New Jersey
  • New Mexico
  • New York
  • Oregon
  • Virginia

The president made many statements admitting that he would use the emergency powers of the presidency in order to circumvent the disapproval of Congress. Democrats have been stalwartly against the border wall, and they control the U.S. House of Representatives.

The president appeared to anticipate a legal challenge to his use of the emergency authority in comments to the media.

“We will have a national emergency, and we will then be sued. And they will sue us in the 9th Circuit, even though it shouldn’t be there,” the president said.

“And we’ll possibly get a bad ruling and then we’ll get another bad ruling and then we’ll end up the Supreme Court,” he continued, “and then hopefully we’ll get a fair shake and we’ll win in the Supreme Court, just like the ban.”

The Democratic-controlled House Judiciary Committee has already opened an investigation meant to determine whether the declaration of a national emergency was constitutional.

    The whole country (well, except for a few million airheads) knows WHY the liberals don’t want a wall. “Beto” even wants his torn down. No surprise – that way, he can get half of Mexico voting for him, probably twice.

    These other liberal cesspool states saw how well things worked for California (until San Diego started to become overrun, then they screamed for and got a “wall” right away). Some of these states are in danger of going red, so they need some insurance (“donde votar”)

    It’s all about the votes. POWER. To hell with the health and safety of America.

    In this group of “suers” (aka “sewers”) there is only one state even close to the southern border.
    What is wrong with New Mexico? Oh…13,639 (55.2%) “Hispanic”- that is, “known” Hispanics.

    Of course Illinois is in that mix. The most corrupt state in the country who also gave us Obama. People are leaving Illinois in droves because of the political lawlessness and insane taxation. It is a nasty cesspool.

    Embarrassed to say I’m from Colorado. What used to be a red state has become a libtard haven with the influx of Californians.

    California needs to focus its feeble attention on the $3.5 million the state owes the federal govt for the scrapped rail system we funded.
