Another win for the Trump administration and for all Americans who want to build the wall!
The Supreme Court just declined a challenge to Trump’s border wall earlier today. The challenge claimed that the Trump administration violated the Constitution when it exempted border projects from environmental considerations.
Environmental Groups Claim:
“Trump has abused his power to wreak havoc along the border to score political points. He’s illegally sweeping aside bedrock environmental and public health laws. We’ll continue to fight Trump’s dangerous wall in the courts and in Congress.”
A 1996 law gives the AG and the DHS the right to build border barriers and further gives the DHS secretary the right to exempt border projects from environmental laws.
The environmental groups are worried about the effects to the “ecosystem” if a wall is built.
Have they seen what’s happening at the border where illegals have dumped trash everywhere?
There is picture after picture of the border and the trash left behind by illegals. what about what this is doing to the “ecosystem”?
President Trump has made funding for the border wall a priority and has threatened to shut down the government to get it:
“We need border security in this country, and if that means a shutdown I would totally be willing to shut it down. And I think it’s a really bad issue for the Democrats.”
