Gavin Newsom says California plans to sue Donald Trump over national emergency declaration

California plans to sue over President Donald Trump’s decision to declare a national emergency at the Mexico border, Gov. Gavin Newsom said Friday.

If filed, the lawsuit would mark the state’s 46th legal challenge to Trump administration policies. This time, Newsom said, the state intends to contest Trump’s use of executive power for what the governor calls a manufactured crisis at the border.

“Our message back to the White House is simple and clear: California will see you in court,” Newsom said.
