U.S. District Judge Rejects Lawsuit Attempting To Block Border Wall…

Still no word on the turrets and sharks with lasers idea, but we’re holding steady…

SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) – A U.S. judge on Tuesday sided with President Donald Trump’s administration and rejected an attempt by the state of California and environmental groups to stop the government from building a wall on the U.S. border with Mexico.

The lawsuit filed in a San Diego federal court alleged that Trump’s proposed wall violates federal environmental standards, as well as constitutional provisions regarding the separation of powers and states’ rights.

The plaintiffs asked U.S. District Judge Gonzalo Curiel to stop the administration from pursuing the barrier until it demonstrates compliance with environmental laws.

The wall, a key item for Trump’s political base of supporters, has become a sticking point in talks to keep alive a federal program that protects from deportation young people who were brought to the United States illegally as children.

In his latest budget proposal to Congress, Trump requested $23 billion for border security, most of it for building the wall.

Curiel said his decision on Tuesday was not based on whether the underlying decisions to construct the wall “are politically wise or prudent.” Rather, Curiel said the Trump administration had not exceeded its legal authority in pursuing the project.  (read more)

    Liberals especially in California ignore the severe environmental damage from the overpopulation caused by illegal immigration. How many more cars, buses, trains and planes are needed for a million uneducated and unskilled Mexicans pouring into California. Add the impact on water, sewage, housing, schools, hospitals, prisons and public transportation. So, what’s the purpose arresting a waiter who offers a restaurant customer a straw when you have a horde of immugrants numbering over a million in an already overcrowded state draining resources and causing enormous environmental damage including climate change?

      Excellent thought! Help us see how deep this hole really is.

      another example of the dissonant thinking of moronic lib/commies…….import MILLIONS of workers and when the labor supply depresses wages let us LEGISLATE for an increase in wages….sheeesh….LOL

      Don’t forget the environmental impact of drug cartels growing weed on public lands using nasty chemicals, ruining the soils/vegetation. Not to mention shooting anyone that comes near their crops.

    For America to build The Wall is all well and good, but I’d encourage the designers to incorporate a continuous slant over twelve degrees to the south.

    As the great Churchill poignantly observed –

    ““There are two things that are more difficult than making an after-dinner speech: climbing a wall which is leaning toward you and kissing a girl who is leaning away from you.”

    A wall which towers *and* overhangs is twice as daunting.

    While we’re on the topic, can we all agree that service in the Armed Forces Reserves and the National Guard should include significant time securing our borders? Seems reasonable to me, anyway.

      NG is allowed by presidential directive……US military reserves are FORBIDDEN by law except in declared emergencies from internal operations (training not included)

    As to the design and I hope it has been discussed. Be sure to build it 250 feet inside our border line so we can have an access road running parallel to it so we can defend it from the south side as well.

    Meaning: Our presence along with the wall is the deterrent. We can kinda draw one of those “lines in the sand” 250 feet away. They might be smart enough to understand that, Comprendo?????

    Environmental issues that arise can be dealt with at that time. No reason to not get started on a wall.
    The environment is not the same all along the border, if something isn’t working along a particular segment, we can fix that.
    I love nature and wildlife, clean air and water as much as anyone.
    I think the wall may actually help protect those things, in some cases.
    BTW, where is the “if it saves only one life” standard, that the liberals use to justify all kinds of government overreach, when it comes to the border?
    Protecting our border is, if not the most, one of the most legitimate functions of a federal government.

    Yes to Bendix and the great BTW. The Maxrist, Leftist, Activist actually were concerned with “if it saves only one life”, the Kate Steinle case ring a bell. But, it just so happens it was not Kate Steinle’s life. The life that mattered more to them was the seven time deported illegal who did not know what was in the tee shirt when the gun went off, duh! The gun was stolen from a law enforcement officer, he still gets off. I live in this toilet of California, it really needs to be flushed. Send Mexico’s excrement back ASAP. Build that beautiful wall. May POTUS DJT declare it a National Treasure and Historic Landmark. AMERICA IS GREAT AGAIN on this side for AMERICAN DREAMERS.

    The Left was chucking a while back because Curiel would be adjudicating this case. Looks like they have to eat crow… once again.
