Maryland Attorney General News Releases (BLocking the Border Wall)
Attorney General Frosh Joins 20-State Coalition in Motion to Block Diversion of Funds and Resources for Construction of a Border Wall
Attorneys General File Motion for Preliminary Injunction to Safeguard the Environment and Preserve Law Enforcement Funding
BALTIMORE, MD – Maryland Attorney General Brian E. Frosh, as part of a coalition of 20 states, filed a motion to block the Trump Administration’s attempt to unlawfully divert $1.6 billion in federal funds to build a border wall. The motion was filed in the Northern District of California as part of the coalition’s ongoing lawsuit challenging President Trump’s unconstitutional action to divert funding and resources meant for law enforcement, drug interdiction, and military construction projects. The coalition requests the court immediately stop the Trump Administration from diverting $1.6 billion in funding that Congress intended for state and local law enforcement agencies. Through their motion, the states also seek to protect environmental resources that would be imminently harmed by the construction of a border wall on the southern border in New Mexico.
