Md AG calls Trump’s National Emergency “illegal” and “dangerous”

February 16th, 2019 by WCBC Radio

Maryland Attorney General Brian E. Frosh today released the following statement:

 

“President Trump’s declaration of a national emergency on our southern border is illegal, unnecessary, and dangerous.  The asserted purpose of the order – national security – is a sham.  The President’s order diverts funds from legitimate emergencies and puts at risk the health and safety of Americans as a result.  It is also an abuse of executive authority.  Our office is reviewing the declaration’s impact on Maryland and all options for redressing this unconstitutional usurpation of power.”
