Trump Secures Supreme Court Ruling In Border Wall Battle

The court clears the way for the President to use Pentagon funds to build sections of the wall

U-S President Donald Trump is able to tap funds for the Mexico border wall.

The United States Supreme Court cleared the way for Trump to obtain billions of dollars in Pentagon funds to build sections of the wall.

The Supreme Court’s action reverses the decision of a trial court, which initially froze the funds in May, and an appeals court, which kept that freeze in place earlier this month.

The freeze had prevented the government from tapping approximately $2.5 billion in Defence Department money to replace existing sections of barrier in Arizona, California and New Mexico with more robust fencing.
