Judge Rules Trumps Border Wall Can Move Forward

In a surprising turn of events, the Trump wall actually might really be happening! In San Diego, a Judge that was very critical of  President Donald Trump during the hight of the campaign trail has now made the decision to build the wall in his favor and needless to say President Trump is very excited.

The Trump administration now has the clearance to move ahead with building a wall along the country’s southern border after federal judge Curiel ruled that the trump Administration can continue to waive environmental regulations to build their wall.

“The court is aware that the subject of these lawsuits, border barriers, is currently the subject of heated political debate in and between the United States and the Republic of Mexico as to the need, efficacy and the source of funding for such barriers,” Curiel wrote. “In its review of this case, the Court cannot and does not consider whether underlying decisions to construct the border barriers are politically wise or prudent.”

Naturally, not only was the President excited about this news, but so were his followers as well.

The ruling was in response to a lawsuit that was issued by an environmentalist organization to challenge the White House on whether it had the right to circumvent federal regulations in order to build a literal wall on the border. In response, a spokesperson from the Department of Homeland Security called the decision a victory for a government that is intent on securing its borders.

The Justice Department hailed the ruling.

“Border security is paramount to stemming the flow of illegal immigration that contributes to rising violent crime and to the drug crisis, and undermines national security,” said spokesman Devin O’Malley. ” … We are pleased DHS can continue this important work vital to our nation’s interests.”

One of the groups challenging the wall said it intended to appeal the decision.

“We intend to appeal this disappointing ruling, which would allow Trump to shrug off crucial environmental laws that protect people and wildlife,” said Brian Segee, a senior attorney at the Center for Biological Diversity. “The Trump administration has completely overreached its authority in its rush to build this destructive, senseless wall.”

As of now, the Department of Homeland security has 8 prototypes for the construction of the wall and President Trump is scheduled to visit the border wall prototypes next month.

As of now, it’s also still unclear where the Trump administration will get the money for the wall since Congress “still” hasn’t decided on a budget plan and neither has the Mexican government made any hints of them even thinking about financing the wall. The chances do look slim but we’ve seen unlikelier things come to pass in recent years.
