Supreme Court Gives Trump Go-Ahead to Fund the Wall

Supreme Court Gives Trump Go-Ahead to Fund the Wall, by Tyler O’Neil.

On Friday, the Supreme Court struck down a lower court order, allowing President Donald Trump to redirect military funds to build his wall on the southern border. In a 5-4 decision, the Court allowed Trump to redirect $2.5 billion in military construction funds for wall projects in California, Arizona, and New Mexico. …

Chief Justice John Roberts and Justices Brett Kavanaugh, Samuel Alito, Clarence Thomas, and Neil Gorsuch ruled that Trump could proceed with redirecting the funds while litigation over the issue continues.

That’s less than 10% of the funds required.
