“A federal judge issued a temporary injunction on Friday night immediately blocking the transfer of funding and halting the construction of parts of President Trump’s wall along the U.S.-Mexico border, reports the Washington Post.
Why it matters: Federal Judge Haywood Gilliam issued the injunction saying it was “unconstitutional” for the Trump administration to transfer funds for the border wall that Congress allocated for other purposes. Construction — now postponed — was expected to begin as early as Saturday. …”
Look on the brightside:
Today’s BORDER WALL CONSTRUCTION UPDATE: Miles completed yesterday- Accurate figure unavailable; Miles completed since Inauguration– 1.7 (could be off+/- several inches). NEXT UPDATE TOMORROW.— Ann Coulter (@AnnCoulter) May 24, 2019
In two and a half years, Blompf has only built 1.7 miles of new border fence after downgrading it from being a 30 foot wall, so it is not like this injunction will change anything.
