Less than a week since President Donald Trump declared a national emergency to divert funds to build a border wall, multiple groups are already challenging the move in court.

During the Rose Garden speech announcing his plan, Trump detailed in a sing-song voice the path he expected the emergency declaration to take through the court system, all the way up to the Supreme Court.

> “We will have a national emergency,” he said. “And we will then be sued, and they will sue us in the 9th Circuit, even though it shouldn’t be there. And we will possibly get a bad ruling, and then we’ll get another bad ruling. And then we’ll end up in the Supreme Court, and hopefully, we’ll get a fair shake, and we’ll win in the Supreme Court.”

The central issue at play is a constitutional question: whether Trump’s emergency declaration violated Congress’s constitutional authority to appropriate funds. But the “they” in Trump’s scenario— “they will sue us”— turned out to be several groups with specific concerns about the effects of building a border wall.

Here’s a look at four court challenges Trump’s emergency declaration will likely face.

Build that wall.
It's not a 'national emergency', it's a 'humanitarian crisis', and Trump is clearly and objectively ABUSING executive power, twisting it into a dictatorial directive, just like the despotic autocrat that he is.
Yeah he should be using drone strikes to deal with illegal border crossings.
he should just drone strike them with their family like obama did
wish he would grow a pair
With your taxpayer money and not from Mexico
