AG Balderas’ Statement On Lawsuit Against President Trump

Statement from Attorney General Hector Balderas on yesterday’s filing of a joint lawsuit against Pres. Donald Trump’s emergency declaration.

“As Attorney General of a border state, I am appalled that President Trump would bypass the rule of law, manufacture an ‘emergency,’ and weaken our national defense and readiness for a potential terrorist attack or catastrophic natural disaster,” said Attorney General Balderas. “I stand ready to join with our state partners to file against and prevent this abhorrent misuse of executive power.”
