California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Illinois, Maine, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Nevada, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Oregon and Virginia.
Wonder how many illegals voted in these states in the 2016 and 2018 elections.
There used to be a SAC (Strategic Air Command) base in the northern-most part of Maine. Loring Air Force Base. In the event of war with the Soviet Union, bombers carrying nukes would have been on there way to targets in the USSR.
That base is closed now.
Bath Iron Works makes destroyers and other ships for the Navy....located in southern Maine.
Brunswick Naval Air Station in southern Maine used to have P-3 anti-sub planes based there. It’s now closed.
Air National Guard base at Bangor International Airport....C-141 Starlifters and C-5A Galaxy aircraft based there.
The only reason Maine joined this lawsuit was because in the Blue Wave election last fall, Maine’s dem attorney general, Janet Mills, beat GOP businessman Shawn Moody, who ran a rather weak campaign, unfortunately.
The Maine House is controlled by democrats, and Maine has a new democrat attorney general because the party that controls the Maine House gets to pick the attorney general.
I doubt if most people in Maine support this stupid lawsuit.
Our previous governor, super-conservative Paul LePage, was term-limited out. He now lives in Florida but will return to Maine in the warm weather months. LePage has already said he wants to run in 2022, and people are already sending money for a campaign.
I don’t get this.
I don’t have any citations at hand, but over the years I’ve read of District Court decisions being only effective in that District and that we’d have to wait for a Supreme Court outcome to know if the decisions was national or not.
I’ve read of the Supreme Court taking cases because different district courts came to different decisions.
So how does one lower level judge in a district get to issue a nationwide injunction?
If I was in the Fifth District Court, I’d be less than happy if some Ninth District schmuck issued an injunction I didn’t like and would not have issued, but I and my people have to follow it anyway.
Could judges in the Fifth District say “That’s nice Ninth, but not in our district”?
The amount of money the president is spending on the wall is small compared to the overall defense budget.
The president has said the generals have urged him to use the money, telling him that building the wall is very important to our national security.
No defense contracts to businesses in Maine will suffer as a result. It’s just left-wing moonbat grandstanding and their usual lies.
Can you post a link to the complaint. I’d love to read their reasoning for standing and ripeness.
Im old Mr President. But Im ready to serve.
“Along with Maine, California, and New York, the group of states also includes Delaware, Oregon, Hawaii, Colorado, Connecticut, Illinois, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Virginia, Nevada, New Jersey, New Mexico.”
Roberts is Bush Jrs neocon POS. Obamacare is just a tax my butt.
It should be filed in the DC Court if anywhere. Of course the liberals will pick the friendliest court. Another reason the 9th Circus should be chopped into smaller bits.
Fine. Trump will build first in Texas and Arizona since they weren’t plaintiffs.
I don’t recognize this country anymore. These liberal states are insane. I wonder if this is what the country was like pre-Civil War.
Non border states should have no standing. Texas is taking the brunt of this crap and we are tired of it.
What, Mass is not in on this? Healey is not on the ball.
I’m opposed to this.
The attorney general did not receive my permission.
Why didn’t the taxpayers of these States get a chance to vote if President Trump should be sued or not?
Can we sue the AGs for misrepresenting us?
Like sheep going to their slaughter. This is where the idiot libs are leading this country.
16 states need to have there stars removed from our flag. In most sane cases they would have no status.
UH no. You can recall your AG, but he is most likely acting on orders from the governor or state legislature all of whom can be recalled.
That wall will stop all the Mexicans from entering Honolulu I guess
But they already did give their approval years ago when they passed a law giving him the authority. Trump also has the Constitutional authority to protect our nation from enemies foreign and domestic.
Thanks for posting what should be an obvious truth to the 9th Circuit Court. If the truth mattered to this court this could be over quickly.
“The litigation additionally includes allegations that Trump is violating the National Environmental Policy Act, by planning to build a wall that could impact the environment without first completing the necessary environmental impact reports.”
From Feb 11, 2019-
“The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled for the Trump administration Monday in a case challenging its use of waivers to bypass environmental regulations in constructing parts of the border wall.
“they allege, the federal funds could have been spent on their defense.”
This is dumbfounding, as the money Trump
wants to spend on the wall IS for their
