Judge blocks Trump from using billions in military funds for border wall


A federal judge on Friday issued a ruling blocking the Trump administration from tapping billions of dollars in military funds to construct a wall on the United States' southern border.

U.S. District Judge Haywood Gilliam issued the permanent injunction in a California federal court, after initially ruling last month to temporarily halt the administration’s use of military funds for the border wall.


President Trump declared a national emergency earlier this year in order to divert Defense Department funds toward border wall construction.

Gilliam, an Obama appointee, also issued a ruling in a separate case stopping the Trump administration from moving forward with border wall construction in New Mexico and California while that legal challenge plays out.
