Judge blocks billions from trump’s wall

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.

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. Problem solved.

Democrats just can't help but attempt to legislate from the bench. Which judge did this and are they supporters of Le Raza?

I don’t get how that works. Judges interpret laws, why do they have that power?

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?

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.

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.

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).
