Federal Judge Blocks Trump from reappropriating defense department funds to build his pointless wall.
A federal judge on Friday night blocked President Donald Trump from tapping into Defense Department funds to build parts of his US-Mexico border wall.
In a 56-page ruling, Judge Haywood Gilliam, a Barack Obama appointee in the Northern District of California, blocked the administration from moving forward with specific projects in Texas and Arizona “using funds reprogrammed by DoD under Section 8005 of the Department of Defense Appropriations Act, 2019.”
The power of the purse lies with Congress. Cue the Trump temper tantrum on Air Force One any minute now.
