    SCOTUS Just Gave President Trump's Border Wall a Nice Assist......

    In a 5-4 ruling, with Justice Roberts joining the conservative wing this time, the Supreme Court refused on Friday to lift a stay order that allows the Trump administration to redirect some $2.5 billion in Pentagon funds to build the president's border wall. The ACLU, Sierra Club, and Southern Border Communities Coalition had petitioned the court to block construction of the wall while so-called concerns about the environment and the use of diverted funds play out in court.

    In a dissenting opinion, Justice Breyer harped about the court's refusal to lift the stay, calling it "a final judgment" in effect since the portion of the wall under question may very well be constructed by the time the underlying legal challenges are adjudicated. The court's other liberals, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Elena Kagan, and Sonia Sotomayor also dissented.

    In June, a federal appeals court ruled that the Trump administration lacked the authority to reallocate funding from the Department of Defense to build the border wall. But the ruling had no impact since the Supreme Court had issued its stay the year before.

    In Mar. 2019, the Department of Defense authorized $1 billion to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to begin construction of 57 miles of new border wall. And in May 2019, then Acting Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan approved an additional $1.5 billion in Pentagon funds to construct an additional 80 miles of wall along the southern border. .....snip~

    For SCOTUS to rule that way the majority thinks the administration would prevail on the merits. For the reasons Breyer brought up it will likely be done before the hearing is over. If the admin should win on the merits the courts ought not hold up critical construction projects for US security.

    It was the Sierra Club that made sure openings large enough for wildlife to pass through. These openings allowed all but morbidly obese Mexicans to pass through them as well. The contractors were disgusted by neocon Bush's total waste of taxpayers money. Yes they still took the check.
