SCOTUS delivers border wall win for Pres. Trump

The U.S. Supreme Court backed the Trump administration on Friday by lifting an impediment imposed by a lower court that had quashed plans to use $2.5 billion in Pentagon funds for border wall construction — a key element of the president’s 2016 winning campaign.

The decision allows the administration to move forward with plans to construct the much needed border wall along major entry points used by illegal aliens.

Chief Justice John Roberts and associate justices Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito, Neil Gorsuch, and Brett Kavanaugh voted in support of the administration.

Liberal associate justices Elena Kagan, Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Sonia Sotomayor, all Democrat appointees, dissented, with their cohort Justice Stephen Breyer issuing this split opinion, unable or unwilling to fully reach the right conclusion.

On February 19, the reliably leftist organizations American Civil Liberties Union and Sierra Club, filed a lawsuit challenging President Trump’s emergency powers declaration to secure funds to build the barrier along the southern border, after his efforts were stonewalled by congressional Democrats. The lawsuit, brought on behalf of the Sierra Club and the illegal invasion supporting Southern Border Communities Coalition was filed in the Northern District of California.

“We are pleased that the Supreme Court recognized that the lower courts should not have halted construction of walls on the southern border,” Justice Department spokesperson Alexei Woltornist said in a statement. “We will continue to vigorously defend the Administration’s efforts to protect our Nation.”

The President tweeted:

    Candidate Donald Trump made promises. President Donald Trump has worked tirelessly to fulfill them… despite all of the roadblocks put in his way by still enraged Hillary-supporting Democrats.

    I have never regretted voting for Donald Trump and look forward to working to reelect him in 2020. Though Trump is a brash New York businessman lacking Reagan’s easy good humor and charm,in many ways, he and First Lady Milania remind me of conservative Pres. Ronald Reagan and his elegant wife Nancy.

    Yes, the plaintiffs’ “concern” was for people who would be denied access to hiking, bird-watching, or fishing. (I kid you not.)

    Did you see what happened between Wednesday and Friday evening?
    At an impromptu presser on Wednesday, one of the presstitutes asked a question about Guatemala not stopping the flow of illegals through their country.

    President Trump said he didn’t believe the excuse that the G govt gave, so he would be taking further economic steps against them.
    (the foreign aid was cut off months ago).

    And, SHAZAMM, just like that, last evening the press corps was shaken from their after dinner sluggishness and summoned to the Oval Office. And there sat DHS acting Secretary Kevin McAleenen and the Interior Minister of Guatemala, Enrique Deganhart.
    (neither one looking pleased, but a lot of “yes sir”, “yes sir” when President Trump called for their affirmations)

    Signed, sealed, and delivered. Immigrants will have to apply for asylum in Guatemala and stay parked there.

    Meanwhile,
    Thousands of Africans are showing up on our southern border. Great, strong swimmers must they be.

    And while carrying those small children on their back, no less.
    Children with NO Birth Certificates. Dark-skinned children.
    Very important to remember going forward.

    Human trafficking.

    ALL Those MANY Foundations and Institutes supposed set up to defeat human trafficking.
    You’ll find out.

      I’m very grateful to President Trump for all he is doing to secure our nation’s border. I’m also thankful for the outstanding Justices he has appointed to the US Supreme Court.

      This decision would never have been reached if Jeff the Flake had his way. Remember how in the waning days of Barack Obama’s presidency, his good buddy and appropriately named Flake took Obama’s lame duck appointee Merrick Garland around introducing him to senators in the hopes of getting him appointed to the Supreme Court?

      Like McCain, Flake falsely claimed to be a Republican. They both used Republicans to get elected and then traitorously worked with democrats against us.

    My wife and I are so committed to the reelection of Donald Trump that we’ve become precinct committeemen working within the Republican party structure to help this good man win a second term. Join us! We’re learning how to get the vote out in the most effective manner, and have met great folks along the way.

    Call AZ GOP headquarter:(602) 957-7770 to find out how to get active. Ask what district you’re in and get the number of your district chairman to find out about getting appointed. We run in the September primary, which only requires getting 10 of your neighbor’s signatures on a nominating petition. It costs nothing. You’ll be making a commitment to keeping our country and families living in the best nation on earth. It matters now more than ever.

    District meetings are just one evening a month and you’ll eventually meet all of the candidates. We thought we were knowledgeable before. How wrong we were.
