Wisconsin Could Fight Pres. Trump’s Emergency Declaration

Local News

Attorney General Josh Kaul has spoken out against President Donald Trump’s proclamation on declaring a national emergency:

“President Trump’s emergency declaration is a blatant attempt to circumvent the system of checks and balances prescribed by the United States Constitution.

I fully expect that it will be blocked by the courts.

If it becomes clear that federal funds that should be distributed to Wisconsin will instead be diverted as a result of this manufactured emergency, the Wisconsin Department of Justice will take appropriate action.”

Local 5’s Erinn Taylor spoke with Attorney General Josh Kaul at a press conference in Appleton.

Watch Local 5 at 4 p.m. to hear Kaul expand on the statement above.
