Supreme Court rules Trump can use $2.5 billion to ‘build the glorious’ southern border wall, ‘Big Win!’

The United States Supreme Court ruled on Friday that President Donald Trump can use $2.5 billion in military funding to build the border wall along the U.S. southern border.

The Supreme Court’s order temporarily settles one of many disagreements between the Trump administration and Democrats over border security, who turned to leftist states, like California, to attempt to block the move on border security.

Trump responded to the news in a tweet, writing, “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!”

This will allow the administration to build over 100 miles of Trump’s border wall along the U.S. southern border in Arizona, New Mexico, and California, which Bloomberg noted is Trump’s “biggest step yet toward erecting his long-promised wall.”

“The 30-foot steel bollard fencing will replace barriers that the Trump administration says are dilapidated and ineffective,” Bloomberg continued. “Some of those existing barriers are designed only to prevent vehicles from crossing and don’t stop pedestrians.”

Axios added that the president “wants roughly $8 billion to build a wall on U.S.-Mexico border, $3.6 billion of which he plans to access with emergency powers.”

The five conservative Supreme Court Justices ruled in favor of the Trump administration while the four liberal justices would not have allowed construction to start.

This ruling won’t stop leftist opposition.

The American Civil Liberties Union, which represents challengers in the dispute, said it would ask the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, where the case remains pending, to speed up consideration of the government’s appeal.

“This is not over. We will be asking the federal appeals court to expedite the ongoing appeals proceeding to halt the irreversible and imminent damage from Trump’s border wall,” ACLU attorney Dror Ladin said. “Border communities, the environment, and our Constitution’s separation of powers will be permanently harmed should Trump get away with pillaging military funds for a xenophobic border wall Congress denied.”

Alexei Woltornist, a spokesman for the Department of Justice, said in a statement: “We are pleased that the Supreme Court recognized that the lower courts should not have halted construction of walls on the southern border.  We will continue to vigorously defend the Administration’s efforts to protect our Nation.”
