This Court Just Took Trump’s Side in the Battle to Secure Funding for the Border Wall

One of President Donald Trump’s campaign promises was to build a wall along the southern border to protect Americans and strengthen the integrity of the country’s rule of law.

Liberal politicians have done everything they could to stop the president from enforcing federal law and stemming the flow of foreigners flooding into the country.

President Trump declared a national emergency at the border last February to free up over $6 billion to begin construction on the wall. After he was thwarted in this attempt, he announced he’d divert $3.6 billion in military construction funding for the wall. But a court issued an injunction against this move.

Sources announced this week that a three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit has temporarily lifted this injunction, pending an appeal in the issue. From Reuters:

In a 2-1 ruling, the panel noted that the U.S. Supreme Court had stayed an injunction in a similar border wall case from the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.

The court also said there was a “substantial likelihood” that the parties challenging the funding transfer – the county of El Paso, Texas, and the Border Network for Human Rights – lacked standing to sue the Trump administration.

  1. Please!
    I love you guys, … but IT-IS-NOT that … “This court took President Trump’s side …”. The court was upholding the Law! Making their ruling from WITHIN the Law! Instead of Judges ‘MAKING Law from the bench, as THEY see it.
    Wow! So cool! (For a change).
