The budget for President Donald Trump’s border wall has shrunk by $2.5 billion, after a federal judge in Northern California issued a pair of rulings blocking the president from using military funding to build parts of the wall on Friday.
As a multi-tour Marine combat veteran, it makes absolute sense that the wall funding be taken from military budget.
1. National defense falls under military jurisdiction.
2. We build buildings, including walls, in Iraq and Afghanistan without anyone blinking an eye.
Well let's get a different judge to overturn the first judges ban. Come on folks.
A California judge says the border wall is unlawful in two areas... So then don't build it there, and get webuildthewall.us to build that section.
Democrats just can't help but attempt to legislate from the bench. Which judge did this and are they supporters of Le Raza?
Fuck these swamp parasites
I don’t get how that works. Judges interpret laws, why do they have that power?
The blood of children, who die being forced to attempt the crossing, is on the judges hands.
Deport him too.
Gotta fix injunctions reaching beyond Jurisdiction.
I have a couple questions.
1. Will this even be completed by the time Trump leaves office.
2. What's to stop our next elected dictator from tearing it down?
Great job judge. Now theres MORE insentive to trudge through a desert and die. Thanks for helping absolutely nobody.
POTUS is supposed to be the most powerful person in the United States. I don't understand why Liberal judges can obstruct him at every turn.
Fucking swamp judge parasites
Oh, the demographics !!!
Let's see, there is no enumerated power in the Constitution to regulate immigration. The case law, dating to 1875, relies on the Commerce clause and the Necessary and Proper clause, both in Article I. Article I also gives the appropriation power to Congress. Republicans controlled both chambers for the first 2 years of Trump's administration and didn't fund the wall. This is a legitimate Constitutional question, and the injunction precludes irreversible damage while it moves through the courts. ... This is how it's supposed to work.
overturned in 3..2..1
real patriot right there
This is the current leftist tactic, institute a deluge of lawsuits and use Judges they know align with their views to halt action by the administration. This will very likely be overturned (like the travel ban at the beginning of the current administration’s term), but it serves its goal. It’s not designed to stop the wall but slow it down so the DNC can win back the presidency (wishful thinking I know, but this seems to be their plan).
