SAN FRANCISCO – California has filed a lawsuit over the Trump administration’s plan to build a wall along the border with Mexico, adding to the obstacles facing one of President Trump’s key campaign promises.

California Attorney General Xavier Becerra (a Democrat) announced Wednesday the lawsuit, which targets planned projects in San Diego and Imperial counties.

This is just another blast from the ultra liberal state’s legal and legislative war against Trump.

The state essentially has emerged as the heart of the Trump “resistance,” pumping out lawsuits against his immigration policies and even passing a resolution Friday in the Assembly censuring Trump for his comments on the violence stemming from white nationalist protests in Charlottesville, Va., Brooke Singman at Fox News reported.

Becerra’s latest lawsuit charged that the Trump administration “violated the U.S. Constitution, failed to comply with federal and state environmental laws, and relied on a federal statute that does not authorize the proposed projects.”

“The Trump administration has once again ignored laws it doesn’t like in order to resuscitate a campaign talking point to build a wall on our southern border,” Becerra said in a statement Wednesday. “President Trump has yet to pivot from candidate Trump to leader of a nation built on the rule of law. That’s dangerous.”

The lawsuit comes as Trump works with Congress to try and secure funding for a border wall — though the specifics of the project itself remain unclear.

The president issued an executive order in January calling for securing the “southern border of the United States through the immediate construction of a physical wall on the southern border, monitored and supported by adequate personnel so as to prevent illegal immigration, drug and human trafficking and acts of terrorism.”

This isn’t Becerra’s first lawsuit against the Trump administration. Just last week, Becerra joined state attorneys general from Minnesota, Maryland and Maine in filing suit against the administration over its decision to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, arguing that the White House violated the Constitution and federal laws by rescinding the Obama-era program.

President Donald Trump has insisted Mexico would pay for building the wall, which experts said could cost about $22 billion and take more than three years to complete, Dan Levine at Reuters reports.

With Mexico refusing to pay, Trump has said since taking office in January that the wall will initially need U.S. funding but that he will find a way to make Mexico ultimately pay for it.

Democrats in the U.S. Congress, however, firmly oppose the border wall, and at least some Democratic senators would need to vote for its inclusion in a spending package.

The border wall lawsuit filed in a San Diego federal court alleges that Trump’s wall violates federal environmental standards, as well as constitutional provisions regarding the separation of powers and states’ rights.

The lawsuit asks a judge to stop the administration from building the wall until it demonstrates compliance with environmental laws, and issue an order that the Department of Homeland Security cannot waive any federal guidelines in order to facilitate the project.

And, in another shining example of the ineffectiveness and absolute ridiculous waste of taxpayer time, effort, and dollars, California state lawmakers spent their Saturday passing a resolution that “requires” President Donald Trump to formally apologize for his time in the White House.  Yes, I am serious.

The resolution was actually a part of a larger group of bills and resolutions passed by the super Democratic majority designed to position California as a so-called “leader of the resistance.” The California legislature formally plans to ask the President of the United States for a formal and public apology.

The resolution states California lawmakers plan “to publicly apologize to all Americans for his racist and bigoted behavior.” California lawmakers also plan to attempt to force the issue of President Trump’s tax returns, using this measure to force him to release his full tax returns as well as approve a measure that fully supports federal funding for sanctuary citiesthat refuse to cooperate with federal immigration authorities.

California Senate President Pro Tempore Kevin de León issued a public statement after the vote stating –

“The issue of resistance is beyond the symbolism. There’s real lives at stake … and I think that a lot of other municipalities, as well as other states, are looking towards California … to be the leader of this resistance.”

This is the same man who bragged on the California Senate floor that many members of his family were in America illegally, as well as openly discussing the ways in which they fraudulently used the social security numbers of Americans to obtain benefits that are not theirs to obtain.

Department of Justice spokesman Devin O’Malley said of the resolution –

“The state of California is attempting to codify a commitment to returning criminal aliens back onto our streets, which undermines public safety, national security, and law enforcement.

Given the multiple high-profile incidents that have occurred in California in recent years, it is especially disappointing that state leaders would take steps to limit cooperation between local jurisdictions and immigration authorities attempting to keep Californians safe.”

California lawmakers also passed a measure that many believe could significantly impact the 2020 presidential election in a severe way. The legislature has voted to move the date of the California state presidential primary up by more than five months to the beginning of March. This move could grant the state a significantly greater influence in the Democratic nomination due to the state’s high number of delegates. Gov. Jerry Brown has not yet approved this resolution but many believe it will not be a problem to get him to sign off on it.
