It may be late in the game, but President Trump has scored a big win on expanding the southern border wall.
On Friday, the Supreme Court ruled Friday evening that construction on the wall can continue using $2.5 billion in reallocated Pentagon funds.
That throws a monkey wrench into the attempt by the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), Sierra Club and others to stop the construction for environmental reasons. The groups wanted at least a temporary halt while their challenge works its way through court.
However, in a 5-4 decision, the justices sided with the Trump administration in terms of moving forward on construction.
President Trump's administration has replaced or added more than 200 miles of border wall to date. That's short of his goal of more than 400 miles by the end of this year. Open border advocates and Trump opponents have launched multiple court challenges over the past three and a half years to try to stop the building of the wall.
Build the wall!
That is great. Keep the drugs & Illegals out.
