SACRAMENTO – California Attorney General Xavier Becerra issued the following statement in response to today’s ruling by the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of California:

“We remain unwavering in our belief that the Trump Administration is ignoring laws it doesn’t like in order to resuscitate a campaign talking point of building a wall on our southern border. We will evaluate all of our options and are prepared to do what is necessary to protect our people, our values, and our economy from federal overreach. A medieval wall along the U.S.-Mexico border simply does not belong in the 21st century.”
