The Supreme Court handed President Trump a major victory by ruling his administration could move ahead with its plan to use $2.5 billion in Defense Department funds for construction of a border wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.

In an order Friday, the high court lifted an injunction from a federal district court in California that blocked the Trump administration from using the money, initially designated for counter-narcotic efforts.

    It is these Federal Court rulings which get overturned on appeal that are so aggravating because you know it is because of the bias of the judge. Impeachment of judges was a good idea, but its impractical. What I'd like to see instead is that if you are a Federal Judge and you have two cases overturned by a superior Court in any given year, you are automatically placed on leave and have to go through the confirmation process again.

    Great news for the president.

    Even though ACLU announced that "the fight is not over".

    How much money the left wasted on litigation?

      That's right, ACLU! YOUR Jackass Party's future really needs all those illegal immigrant future voters to keep on streaming across the border where there is no wall.
      How do I know? I've received your donation-seeking Trump-defaming surveys in my snail mail.
      Your printed questions read as destructive to this country crazy as what's been on TV spewing this week from wannabe commie dim Dem presidential candidate anal orifices.
