Federal Judge Blocks Trump’s Border-Wall Plans
In first ruling on the issue, judge writes executive branch’s plans to divert funds for wall exceeded its authority

A federal judge late Friday blocked the Trump administration from moving forward on construction projects for a wall along the southern U.S. border with funds that Congress hadn’t approved, the first ruling on the issue.

U.S. District Judge Haywood Gilliam in Oakland, Calif., said President Trump’s plans to divert federal money to build a border wall, absent appropriations from Congress, exceeded the executive’s authority.

“Congress’s ‘absolute’ control over federal expenditures—even when that control may frustrate the desires of the Executive Branch regarding initiatives it views as important—is not a bug in our constitutional system,” Judge Gilliam, an Obama appointee, wrote in a 56-page decision. “It is a feature of that system, and an essential one.”

3. California to the rescue.

"Obama appointed"...can we hold the line on "Rule of Law"? Truly feels like an "All Hands On Deck, pronto" moment.

5. Great news. Now let's see what an appellate court says. And the Supreme Court.

All this money wasted (it's costing us millions) on baby Trump trying to get his way.
