Winning! This is a great, great win for President Trump and the American people on the border battle! The Supreme Court just cleared the way for President Trump to use military funds to build the border wall.
The decision was split along ideological lines overturning a lower court injunction. It’s no surprise that Sotomayor, Ginsburg, and Kagan all dissented while the conservative Justices voted to approve the use of the Pentagon funds.
President Trump just tweeted out:
Wow! Big VICTORY on the Wall. The United States Supreme Court overturns lower court injunction, allows Southern Border Wall to proceed. Big WIN for Border Security and the Rule of Law!
Pentagon funds will now be used to build the wall lifting a freeze put on the money by the lower court. The freeze had prevented the construction to replace existing sections of a border barrier in Arizona, California, and New Mexico.
