AG Kaul: Statement on President Trump’s national emergency proclamation

MADISON, Wis. – Attorney General Josh Kaul issued the following statement in
response to 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.”
