(Worthy News) - The American Civil Liberties Union has asked a federal court to block additional sections of President Donald Trump’s proposed wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.
Attorneys asked the court to halt construction of a border wall in Southern California and three sections near Tucson, Ariz., late Wednesday. The ACLU, representing the Sierra Club and the Southern Border Communities Coalition, has a good chance of initially prevailing, given the same California court has already suspended the construction of sections in Yuma, Ariz., and El Paso, Texas.
The Justice Department on Wednesday said it would appeal a federal judge‘s decision to halt a $1 billion transfer of Pentagon counterdrug funding to cover expansions of the Yuma and El Paso sectors and asked the court to let construction proceed in the meantime. [ Source: Politico (Read More...) ]
