    Sixteen States Sue White House Over Emergency

    California is leading a coalition of states including Illinois, Michigan, Virginia and New York in challenging President Donald Trump’s use of emergency powers to fund a barrier along the southern border. Filed in a San Francisco federal court, the states’ lawsuit claims Trump has “veered the country toward a constitutional crisis” by diverting cash that’s meant to be controlled by Congress.

    How tense will this get? A drawn-out legal battle could go all the way to the Supreme Court — just in time for the 2020 election.
