Victory Supreme Court Military Funding Border Wall

President Donald Trump has been given the green light by the Supreme Court to use military funding to build the United States-Mexico border wall along the southern border.

In what President Trump describes as a “win” for both border security and the rule of law in the United States, the Supreme Court has sided against a lower court and with the administration in their decision to allow military funding to be used to build the famous border wall.

The administration had asked the justices earlier this month to temporarily pause lower court rulings that blocked officials from tapping some of the diverted Pentagon dollars for border wall construction.

Solicitor General Noel Francisco argued that the needs of the administration outweighed those of groups like the American Civil Liberties Union and Sierra Club who are challenging the use of the Defense Department funds for the wall. And he said that if the funds remain frozen until the end of the fiscal year, authorities may not be able to use them at all.

U.S. District Judge Haywood Gilliam in California, an Obama appointee, issued a permanent injunction blocking officials from utilizing $2.5 billion of the roughly $6 billion in diverted military dollars, siding with the groups’ arguments that building the wall would cause “irreparable harm” to their interests at the border.

Still, four of the court’s liberal judges dissented against the majority’s decision, showing the importance of President Trump’s election. Without Supreme Court Justices Brett Kavanaugh and Neil Gorsuch, it is likely the border wall funding would remain locked behind congressional approval.

From Justice Stephen Breyer:

The application for stay presented to JUSTICE KAGAN and by her referred to the Court is granted. Among the reasons is that the Government has made a sufficient showing at this stage that the plaintiffs have no cause of action to obtain review of the Acting Secretary’s compliance with Section 8005. The District Court’s June 28, 2019 order granting a permanent injunction is stayed pending disposition of the Government’s appeal in the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit and disposition of the Government’s petition for a writ of certiorari, if such writ is timely sought.Should the petition for a writ of certiorari be denied, this stay shall terminate automatically. In the event the petition for a writ of certiorari is granted, the stay shall terminate when the Court enters its judgment.

JUSTICE GINSBURG, JUSTICE SOTOMAYOR, and JUSTICE KAGAN would deny the application. JUSTICE BREYER, concurring in part and dissenting inpart from grant of stay.

President Trump is celebrating the victory on Twitter, writing that “The United States Supreme Court overturns lower court injunction, allows Southern Border Wall to proceed.” The president added, “Big WIN for Border Security and the Rule of Law!”

Even without congressional approval and with lower courts stymieing progress, President Trump has still managed to build hundreds of miles of border wall. The president said last month that over 400 miles of wall would be completed by 2021.

Big League Politics reported:

While being interviewed by phone on Fox News’ morning show “Fox & Friends”, President Trump revealed that his administration will have completed more than 400 miles of border wall by the end of 2020, despite tremendous opposition from Democrats and obstructionists.

“So the wall is going up, it’s going up rapidly, we’re going to have over 400 miles of wall built by the end of next year,” said President Trump. “Tbe wall is very important. It’s hard to breach it, it’s high, it’s strong, it’s powerful, and it’s going up at a much lower cost than the wall that was planned prior to me getting there.”

President Trump also remarked on the state of the previous border barrier the Obama and Bush administrations were building prior to his election.

At this point it seems as though the completion of the border wall is all but certain.

Due to Trump’s Immigration Crackdown, Immigrants Flock to Canada Instead of the United States

Trump’s policies are slowly but surely working.

Published

President Donald Trump’s immigration crackdown has foreigners flooding to Canada instead of the United States, according to an analysis from Forbes.

Recent data shows that the number of foreigners immigrating to Canada rose a remarkable 26 percent from 2015-2019 while the number of legal immigrants coming into the U.S. fell by 7 percent from fiscal year 2016 and fiscal year 2018. This number is expected to decrease further as Trump continues to enact his agenda, with a potential second term just around the corner.

Meanwhile, Canada is getting ready to open its floodgates for even more immigrants under the far-left rule of chronically blackfaced Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. Trudeau’s bureaucrats more-or-less boast that the immigrants will be coming in to replace the native population.

“To further ease the challenges of a shrinking labor force and an aging population, our new multi-year immigration levels plan sets out the highest levels of permanent residents that Canada will welcome in recent history,” said Ahmed Hussen, Canadian Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship.

“Canada is benefiting from a diversion of young Indian tech workers from U.S. destinations, largely because of the challenges of obtaining and renewing H-1B visas and finding a reliable route to U.S. permanent residence,” said Peter Rekai, who founded the Toronto-based immigration law firm Rekai LLP.

While there are members of the Trump administration who are pushing for a Canada-style immigration policy, they have not had success with their plotting up to this point. President Trump’s policies on immigration have remained somewhat restrictive.

The recent U.S. Census report implores the country to open the flood gates for many more immigrants, and operatives from Washington D.C. think-tanks are echoing that line.

“Higher international immigration over the next four decades would produce a faster growing, more diverse, and younger population for the United States,” the Census report concluded.

“We desperately need immigration to keep our country growing and prosperous,” according to William Frey, a demographer with the Brookings Institution demographer who writes books on Census data.

“The reason we have a good growth rate in comparison to other developed countries in the world is because we’ve had robust immigration for the last 30 to 40 years,” he added.

Although Wall Street may be thrilled and GDP numbers may look impressive, ordinary Americans continue to suffer at the expense of this “growth” that is ballyhooed by the experts. Bigger corporate profits, helped along by mass immigration, mean lower wages for American workers.

As former Chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers Kevin Hassett explained last year, President Trump has shattered economic records because he has ignored the Washington D.C. consensus on how to grow the economy.

Mass immigration would jeopardize the incredible progress made by the Trump economy, despite what the corporate lobbyists may be saying.
