President Donald Trump’s Wall will almost certainly be won or lost in the Supreme Court of the United States, as close observers have always expected.
A new appeals court ruling Wednesday keeps Wall construction in Arizona and New Mexico stalled, even as Trump manages to piece together some Wall elsewhere around the border. Criticizing Trump for not yet finishing the Wall is unfair considering our President’s massive political fight to get the Wall done — and Trump always predicted that it would end up in the Supreme Court.
President Trump managed to set the record for longest government shutdown — staving off a manipulated Christmas Day near-stock market collapse in the process — and then declared a national emergency to build the Wall and vetoed both parties in both houses of Congress who passed a bill trying to block his national emergency.
Perhaps most importantly, President Trump has seated Brett Kavanaugh and Neil Gorsuch on the highest court in the land.
President Trump always knew we were heading for the Supreme Court, which he said immediately after he declared his national emergency in February.

President Donald Trump, who campaigned in 2016 on a promise to build a wall, is expected to ask the U.S. Supreme Court to intervene. The White House didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.
The president initially sought $5.6 billion for the wall but Democrats in Congress refused, sparking a 35-day partial government shutdown. After Congress authorized $1.38 billion for border security, Trump declared a national emergency on Feb. 15 — citing a surge in attempted crossings by immigrants — and said he would get the funding he needed elsewhere.
A judge in Oakland, California, issued an order in May that temporarily blocked a pair of border construction projects in New Mexico and Arizona. On June 28, U.S. District Judge Haywood Gilliam expanded the injunction to cover four more projects, and he also made the order permanent.
In Wednesday’s ruling, two of the appeals court judges concluded the president’s action violates Congress’s constitutional authority to spend taxpayer money. They also said that upholding Gilliam’s decision to halt construction won’t significantly alter conditions at the southern border, where immigration authorities say resources are strained by a surge of Central Americans seeking to enter the U.S.

NYC Mayor is Pushing Synagogues to Shut Down
New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio warned the Jewish community that synagogues that continue to not comply with Wuhan virus regulations by holding services will be permanently closed.
According to The Jerusalem Post, the majority of synagogues have closed in compliance with city orders aimed stopping the spread of Wuhan Virus by limiting social gatherings.
“We’ve had extraordinary, across the board rabbinical support from all the different elements of the Jewish community and the same is true of other faiths as well,” de Blasio said during his March 27, 2020 news briefing, according to The Jewish Press.
There are still some synagogues holding minyanim, social gatherings of 10 worshipers or more, to carry out prayer services.
“A small number of religious communities, specific churches and specific synagogues, are unfortunately not paying attention to this guidance even though it’s so widespread,” de Blasio stated.
“I want to say to all those who are preparing for the potential of religious services this weekend: If you go to your synagogue, if you go to your church, and attempt to hold services after having been told so often not to, our enforcement agents will have no choice but to shut down those services,” he admonished. However, he admitted that he does not “say this with joy.”
“I understand how important people’s faiths are to them, and we need our faith in this time of crisis. But we do not need gatherings that will endanger people.”
The mayor asked religious citizens who witnesses services taking place to talk with the congregation’s officials and demand they cease services. If that is not enough, the authorities may “need to take additional action up to the point of fines and potentially closing the building permanently.”
