7 months Trump can’t use $2.5-B border wall fund – judge Manilatimes |World
OAKLAND, Calif.: A federal judge has prohibited US President Donald Trump from tapping $2.5 billion in military funding to build high-priority segments of his prized border wall in California, Arizona and New Mexico. Judge Haywood Gilliam Jr. in Oakland acted in two lawsuits filed by California and by activists, who contended that the money transfer was unlawful and that building the wall would pose environmental threats. “All President Trump has succeeded in building is a constitutional crisis, threatening immediate harm to our state,” said California Attorney General Xavier Becerra, who led a 20-state coalition of attorney generals in one lawsuit.Advertisements
