Judge rules against Trump’s decision to use military funds to build border wall


In addition, Judge Gilliam found that the groups that filed the lawsuit will suffer “irreparable damage” due to the construction of border wall. According to him, it “will harm their ability to recreate in and otherwise enjoy public land along the border.”

Reactions from California AG, ACLU

In a statement, California Attorney General Xavier Becerra, commented, “These rulings critically stop President Trump’s illegal money grab to divert $2.5 billion of unauthorized funding for his pet project.”

“All President Trump has succeeded in building is a constitutional crisis, threatening immediate harm to our state. President Trump said he didn’t have to do this and that he would be unsuccessful in court. Today we proved that statement true,” he added.
