California AG Says Five States Will Sue Trump over National Emergency Declaration

‘We are prepared, we knew something like this might happen’

EXCERPT:

RADDATZ: "You know, the President seems to be focusing on a wall in Texas, not California. Are you confident your state has concrete standing to challenge this? What harm is he doing to California with this declaration? Or will you join other states? How will that work?"
BECERRA: "We are confident there are at least 8 billion ways that we can prove harm. And once we are all clear, all different states are clear, what pots of money that taxpayers sent to D.C. he’s going to raid which Congress dedicated to different types of services whether it’s emergency response services for whether it’s fires or mudslides in California, maybe it's tornadoes and floods in other parts of the country, or whether it’s our military men and women and their families who live on military installations that might have money taken away from them, or whether it’s money taken away from drug interdiction efforts in places like California, a number of states and certainly Americans will be harmed and we’re all going to be prepared."
