20 states file motion to block Trump border wall funding

ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Twenty U.S. states have filed a motion to block President Donald Trump's method of funding a border wall by diverting federal funds through a national emergency declaration, California Attorney General Xavier Becerra said on Friday.

The states filed a lawsuit in February after Trump declared a national emergency to help build a border wall that was a signature of his 2016 campaign for president.

The motion for a preliminary injunction to block Trump's effort that was filed late Thursday formalized that request.

Trump's order would allow him to spend money on the wall that Congress appropriated for other purposes.

Congress declined to fulfill his request for $5.7 billion to help build the wall this year.
