U.S. federal judge halts plan to build parts of Trump’s proposed border wall

A federal judge in California has blocked U.S. President Donald Trump from constructing sections of his long-sought border wall with cash secured underneath his declaration of a nationwide emergency.

U.S. District Judge Haywood Gilliam Jr. on Friday instantly halted the administration’s efforts to redirect military-designated funds to build sections of wall on the Mexican border. His order applies to two deliberate initiatives to add 82 kilometres of fence in two areas.

Gilliam issued the ruling after listening to arguments final week in two instances. California and 19 different states introduced one lawsuit. The Sierra Membership and a coalition of communities alongside the border introduced the opposite.

At stake is billions of {dollars} that may permit Trump to make progress on a signature marketing campaign promise heading into his marketing campaign for a second time period.
