Washington DC and The Holy Land>High court allows use of Pentagon funds for border wall
Bwana 04:55 PM 07-26-2019
WASHINGTON (AP) ó The Supreme Court has cleared the way for the Trump administration to tap Pentagon funds to build sections of a border wall with Mexico.

The Supreme Court said Friday that it would lift a freeze on the money put in place by a lower court. The Supreme Court's action means the Trump administration can tap the funds and begin work on four contracts it has awarded. Four liberal justices wouldn't have allowed construction to start.

A trial court initially froze the funds in May and an appeals court kept that freeze in place earlier this month. The freeze had prevented the government from tapping approximately $2.5 billion in Defense Department money to replace existing sections of barrier in Arizona, California and New Mexico with more robust fencing.

I just don't trust Roberts to keep doing the right a/k/a Constitutional thing.
We need to get another SCOTUS appointment or two in there soon.

Itís replacing existing sections. If the defense department is ok with the funding, I donít see an issue.

Both new build and existing upgrades IIRC.

AT LEAST one. I will not be truly comfortable unless it is two though. And even that is dependent on who is actually nominated and confirmed. We may need three or four to be safe.

Given the following from the court's ruling

it will be interesting to see whether or not the 9th decides to double down, and risk getting slapped by the SCOTUS again, by keeping this case going.

Your post is a sad commentary on both the so-called "conservative" Republicans that we've put into government and the principles of the members of the judiciary.

Trump is having a good week. He will probably eat a bucket of KFC and father a new kid to celebrate.

'One way or the other, Mexico is going to pay for the wall" - Donald John Trump - Pentagon funds are apparently the "other" way. :-)

This is true. But in all fairness it is also a commentary on the life truism that you don’t really know what you have until you actually have it.

Somehow, the left seems to be able to figure out what they have. Go back 100 years. Total up all the "liberal" judges who later became conservative.

Or you don't know what you got until it's gone. :-)
