Obama-Appointed Judge Blocks President Trump’s Border Wall Plans
Another day, another corrupt Obama judge legislating from the bench.
California US District Court Judge Haywood Gilliam, an Obama appointee, issued a preliminary injunction on Friday partially blocking President Trump’s $1 billion border wall plan.
The anti-American ACLU filed a lawsuit against the Trump Administration on behalf of the Sierra Club and the Southern Border Communities Coalition who argued Trump’s plan to divert funds from the Pentagon to build the wall is unconstitutional.
The Sierra Club also argued that walls “divide neighborhoods, worsen dangerous flooding and destroy lands and wildlife.”
“Because the Court has found that Plaintiffs are likely to show that Defendants’ actions exceeded their statutory authority, and that irreparable harm will result from those actions, a preliminary injunction must issue pending a resolution of the merits of the case,” the judge said in court.
The corrupt Obama judge cited the separation of powers between the legislative and executive branches in making his decision.
“The position that when Congress declines the Executive’s request to appropriate funds, the Executive nonetheless may simply find a way to spend those funds ‘without Congress’ does not square with fundamental separation of powers principles dating back to the earliest days of our Republic,” Gilliam wrote.
The ACLU celebrated the activist judge for making a political decision to undermine President Trump and put our national security at risk.
“This order is a win for our system of checks and balances, the rule of law, and border communities. The court blocked all the wall projects currently slated for immediate construction. If the administration begins illegally diverting additional military funds, we’ll be back in court to block that as well,” Dror Ladin, attorney with the ACLU’s National Security Project, said in a statement.
In February, President Trump declared a national emergency to divert funds from the Defense Department to pay for a portion of the border wall.
The crisis at the US-Mexico border is the worst it has ever been as over 100,000 illegal aliens flood across the border every month and the Democrats along with their activist judges are doing everything they can to prevent Trump from stopping the invasion.
