AG Ferguson, Gov. Inslee joint statement on emergency declaration funding

Attorney General Bob Ferguson and Gov. Jay Inslee offered the following statement on potential funding sources for President Donald Trump's proposed border wall: “We remain adamant that Washington state will not help subsidize President Trump’s unlawful and unconstitutional ‘emergency’ declaration to build his wall. We are closely monitoring developments. If a final decision is made to redirect funds from Washington projects to fund the president’s border wall, we will file a lawsuit. Our complaint is drafted and ready to file.”
