Federal Judge blocks funding border wall with military money

December 11, 2019

The last time we visited the border wall issue the President had won a victory in the Supreme Court in a lawsuit filed by the ACLU on behalf of the Sierra Club, saying the President could use Defense funding to build the border wall. Since that time some construction has continued on the wall but now it looks like that victory was only temporary because another case is winding its way through the court system and a judge has issued a “permanent injunction” stopping the President from using military funding to build the wall.

  Here is more:

A federal judge dealt the White House a major blow Tuesday, ruling that the administration cannot use several billion in military funding to pay for border wall construction.

David Briones, who has served on the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Texas since his appointment by former President Bill Clinton in 1994, ruled Tuesday that the Trump administration cannot use billions in military funds to pay for physical barriers along the U.S.-Mexico wall.

“After due consideration, the Court is of the opinion that a declaratory judgment and permanent injunction shall be granted in Plaintiffs’ favor,” Briones wrote in the court ruling.

  In the case which made it to the Supreme Court preciously the court ruled the Sierra Club did not have standing to bring the case forward and that is why this is still an ongoing issue. I am not sure why this judge called this a “permanent injunction” because the Trump administration is going to appeal the ruling. And the beat goes on…

    Another ‘globalist anti-American judge’ at work to destroy America – of course a Clinton appointee. This is just one ‘judgement’ of thousands he’s ruled against the good of America, since 1994. I guess this is one way to have the weeds raise their ugly heads and show who they’re for and against. Have a GITMO room ready for him too!

      The globalist agenda is really what this is all about, isn’t it? Trump has made great strides in getting judges appointed to the lower court but after decades of stacking the courts with globalists it is going to take many years to reverse this. This is another reason they want Trump out so bad.

    “major blow”? Why does that make me laugh…is there anything that happens to Trump that isn’t a major blow these days? How about trying to kick the poor guy out of the WH… forgive me… way too many hours watching endless hearings cover to cover…. I am so cynical these days… 😦

      haha, not a laughing matter I know Bunker, but it’s all so ridiculous! “Makes NO Sense” and that’s the deal, “nonsense” that loves to rule like ‘its worthy’ when it’s NOT.

      I think we are all cynical at this point Bunkerville, it is hard not to be after what we have seen over the last several years. Who would have thought that losing one election would have driven the Democrats to lunacy the way it has?

        haha, didn’t think of him as that, but in the ‘def’ of the word today ‘he is’. He didn’t even have on swimmer glasses or mask – he did what he ‘had to do’!
