One court just handed Donald Trump the win he waited his whole Presidency for

Donald Trump spent nearly three years fighting off frivolous legal challenges by the Left to his agenda.

The President finally got some good news on that front.

And that’s because this one court just handed Donald Trump the win he waited his whole Presidency for.

A District Court judge in Texas slapped an injunction on the President’s ability to transfer $3.6 billion in military construction funds to build a wall along the southern border.

The Democrat judge handed down this decision despite the Supreme Court lifting an earlier order blocking the President’s authority to unlock the money through the 1976 National Emergency Act.

But the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals just stepped in and lifted the order.

POLITICO reports:

A divided federal appeals court has lifted a lower court’s order blocking $3.6 billion in military construction funds that President Donald Trump planned to use to finance an expanded and improved border wall.

The New Orleans-based 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals issued a brief order on Wednesday granting the Trump administration’s request to stay the injunction that U.S. District Court Judge David Briones, based in El Paso, Texas, issued last month.

The three-judge appeals court panel split along ideological lines, with two Republican appointees voting to temporarily set aside the injunction and the sole Democratic appointee dissenting.

The 5th Circuit panel’s majority did not provide a detailed explanation for its action, but noted that last July the Supreme Court stayed a similar injunction issued by a federal judge in Oakland, Calif.

This order clears the final legal hurdle that gets the President back on track toward building hundreds of miles of new border wall before the 2020 election.

Building the wall was the President’s signature campaign promise and Donald Trump being able to tell the voters he fulfilled his pledge will be a centerpiece message of his 2020 re-election campaign.

  1. Regarding sanctuary cities: I watched an old episode of Miami Vice last night, w/ Don Johnson & Cheech Marin. I was surprised to hear them state, in the movie, that Los Angeles was a sanctuary city. That was a long time ago, so even then they were ignoring crimes committed by illegals or just criminals, in general.

  2. They already see the light, “their” light. They are giving them driver’s licenses, which then they use to vote, illegally, for the Demorats. AOC has refused to pay her yearly Dem dues, but instead is giving the money as donations to other far left people just like her to even unseat incumbent Dems not only in NY, but in other states. She is also helping to fund re-election if “the squad”. Bernie’s Sanders says if he wins, she will be his VP. Obama, while President, moved almost 100,000 Somali immigrants to Minnesota & that’s how Ilhan Omar got elected. He also moved more thousands of immigrants to other states in order to achieve the same goal.

  3. I think we should let them move to the Mexico side, THEN built the 30 foot wall so that they can’t get back!
    And you know that they’ll want to. 🙂

  4. Den, all that needs to be done is DON’T give them jobs or freebies and they will self-deport. No wall needed if we wake up and stop treating them like they belong here

  5. james, that is very sad. I have been to Nuevo Laredo and totally understand what you mean. And we are having the same problem here in the Upper Midwest. The Mexicans are bringing down property values. They are truly the new rednecks. It is so disgusting to see their yards!!!!! They have no sense of decency. Mexicans bought the house that I used to live in and it’s very sad to see what they have done to it. I’m sure that it will have to be demolished like the one across the street from me. I was in that one once and it was horrible. Unfathomable to understand how anyone could live like that

  6. Think of the Wall as a safe in a bank. ANY safe can be opened…but it will slow down the robbers until the police show up!
    So, yes we need a wall, but the real fix it to change ALL the laws on immigration to better address the reasons and methods people are being directed here in the first place.

  7. Uncle Hoppy we true Americans who support free enterprise and the Constitution have been saying that all along but idiots want to make this great nation into another Venezuela so they can live in “palaces” as did King George III. My modest proposal is to build the wall then shove the leftists over to the “outside” of it.

  8. The non-contributing faction is already a financial burden to American taxpayers thanks to the leftists who want to build another Venezuela.

  9. I live in Texas and the small town that I came from originally has been taken over by the Hispanic people, and I’m using Hispanic to try to be polite for one day. But at the same time,no white people left and it looks just like Laredo on the Mexican side of the border. There’s junk, old tore apart cars, nothing left of original buildings, goats, chickens running up and down the streets. And these idiots can’t drive, always drunk driving on the wrong side of the road killing people, I’m scare to let my daughter drive anywhere…

  10. That is exactly what it’s gonna take and I hope it happens soon.but they are so sick for votes they will put votes over their and our family members!very very sick people

  11. Of course, the idiot local judge had absolutely no jurisdiction. No district judge can make immigration policy or anything which affects national security. They know they will be overturned, but want to aggravate and have their 15 minutes of leftist fame.

    Trump has been able to put enough sound-minded constitutionalists-conservatives on the 10th Circus (Curcuit) that it now sides with Trump on the Wall and Immigration.
