SACRAMENTO, Calif (KGO) — California Attorney General Xavier Becerra says he has filed a motion to permanently prevent President Trump from constructing a wall in California and New Mexico.
Becerra argues President Trump illegally diverted $2.5 billion in funding to construct a border barrier.
The motion claims there is no emergency at the border and the president is circumventing Congress.
