A Texas county sued to stop military money from being used to build a wall on the border with mexico.
A Texas judge said no.
Now in a 2-1 decision, he has been over rulled by the appeals court.
Now (and @Safiel can correct me if I’m wrong) it can be applealed to the full 5th appeals court, or to the Supreme court. I doubt that those fighting the wall will give up this easy.
In a 2-1 ruling, the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals granted a stay of a Texas judge’s order, which the administration had appealed. The case is still ongoing.
The latest ruling applies to the military construction funds. Last September, Secretary of Defense Mark Esper authorized diverting $3.6 billion in the construction funds for 11 wall projects on the southern border with Mexico. The Pentagon said at the time that half the money was coming from deferred projects overseas, and the other half was planned for projects in the US.
No on this statement I want to know:
“It’s unfortunate that the people of El Paso will continue to suffer harm while the government appeals, but we’re confident that we’ll prevail again in this next stage of litigation,” she said.
How in the hell is preventing criminals (yes when you break a law aka immigration law, federal law you ARE a criminal) causing harm to the people of El Paso???
