Appeals Court Blocks Trump’s Border Wall in National Emergency Challenge
The Appeals Court decision includes halting Trump's priority plan for a border wall at Organ Pipe National Monument, near the western side of the Tohono Oodham Nation, on the Arizona border
SAN FRANCISCO — A federal appeals court today denied the government’s attempt to begin construction of President Trump’s border wall using funds unauthorized by Congress. The ruling upholds an earlier district court order that blocks the administration from building wall sections along the southern border in New Mexico and Arizona using illegally diverted military funds.
