Judge rejects House Democrats' attempt to block border wall

A federal judge in Washington on Monday denied a request by House Democrats to block President Donald Trump from transferring funds from appropriated accounts to construct his wall.

Judge Trevor McFadden said the House lacks standing to bring the challenge and also he does not believe the court should step into the fight between the President and Congress.

"The Court declines to take sides in this fight between the House and the President," McFadden wrote.

"This case presents a close question about the appropriate role of the Judiciary in resolving disputes between the other two branches of the Federal Government. To be clear, the court does not imply that Congress may never sue the Executive to protect its powers," he added.

McFadden also said lawmakers have more options than the court system to fight the President's proposals.

"Congress has several political arrows in its quiver to counter perceived threats to its sphere of power," he wrote. "These tools show that this lawsuit is not a last resort for the House. And this fact is also exemplified by the many other cases across the country challenging the administration's planned construction of the border wall."

Thank you for posting this. There's nothing to argue about here.  It's a judge doing this and not an oger... So no bitching or arguing is needed

Lol. That's adorable in context to the other judges making rulings against Trump and how this place reacts.

Agreed and that point is worthy of civil discussion.  I for one believe this ruling will be scrutinized and possibly over turned by the judges appointed by our fair land.  But I don't see it affecting the Wall's future in and of itself

Is sort of a dangerous ruling though...

 

What happens if the next Dem president decides to declare an emergency over climate change or gun violence.

 

Its not a good thing when a court can’t find standing for congress in the appropriation of funds.

Agreed. Even if I believe that a wall would be beneficial, I do not agree that this is the correct way to do it. 

This is the job for the legislature and not the president. The right controlled every branch for 2 years and did nothing.

"from appropriated accounts to construct his wall."


That's America's wall, not "his" wall.

except the judge noted that he made this decision only because democrats had other methods to fight trump, making this lawsuit unecessary. thats not saying they wouldnt ever making a ruling if there werent any other alternatives.

"To be clear, that does not imply that Congress may never sue the Executive to protect its powers,"

democrats have been using the courts to weild their political power for years. its nice to see someone saying "not this time".
