No less than 16 states are sued President Donald Trump on Monday over his decision to declare a national emergency to build a wall along the southern border, calling the move “unlawful and unconstitutional.”

The states allege in their lawsuit that President Trump’s declaration exceeds the power of the president and unconstitutionally redirects federal money that Congress had set aside for other purposes.

The President made the declaration on Friday after lawmakers sent him a government funding bill that included $1.375 billion for the wall, well short of the $5.7 billion he initially requested.
