The controversial 5-4 ruling means that the Trump administration can use military means to begin replacing fencing along the southern border in California, Arizona and New Mexico

Democrats overturn Supreme Court ruling allowing Trump to redirect $ 2.5 billion in Pentagon border wall funds as & # 39; nonsensical & # 39; and & # 39; deplorable & # 39;

  • Trump may redirect $ 2.5 billion in Pentagon funds for the construction of border walls
  • The 5-4 ruling means that Trump's administration can use military-specific funds
  • The action returns the decision of a court that initially blocked the funds in May and a court of appeal that upheld that freeze during July
  • Democrats criticized Trump's plans to use earmarked means in an attempt to break through the subject of the signature campaign and called it & # 39; nonsensical & # 39; and & # 39; deplorable & # 39;

Leading democrats criticized Trump's plans to use earmarked funds in an effort to get through his characteristic campaign issue.

Many claim that a wall will not slow the flow of migrants to the United States.

Nominated Democratic President Beto O & Rourke expressed his disappointment with the ruling and tweeted: & # 39; Very disappointed in the Supreme Court decision. I have long been against building walls, and while I was in Congress, I introduced language to prevent DOD resources from being used to plan or build a wall along our border. As president, I would do anything to make that law.

Senate minority leader Chuck Schumer pointed to the fact that during his campaign, Trump said that he would let Mexico finance the wall and called the movement “regrettable”.

He tweeted: & # 39; This is a very regrettable and nonsensical decision and goes against the will of Congress and the exclusive power of Congress over the stock market, which our founders have laid down in the Constitution. & # 39;

Add: & # 39; It's a sad day when the President encourages a decision that will allow him to steal money from our army to pay for an ineffective and expensive wall for which he promised Mexico would pay the bill. & # 39;

Arizona Rep. Raul M. Grijalva called Trump & # 39; s emergency statement a & # 39; pathetic attempt to bypass the congress & # 39 ;.

& # 39; Trump's fake emergency was nothing more than a pathetic trick to bypass the congress and build his monument to his racist policies. This fight is not over yet and I will continue to fight Trump & # 39; s efforts to destroy our environment and militarize border communities. #NoBorderWall, & # 39; he tweeted in the aftermath of the statement.

Meanwhile, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi called the statement & # 39; deeply flawed & # 39; via Twitter.

She tweeted: & # 39; The Supreme Court ruling tonight allowing military funds to be stolen to spend on a wasteful, ineffective border wall rejected by Congress is deeply flawed. Our founders have designed a democracy that is run by the people – not a monarchy. & # 39;

Former Housing Minister Julian Castro said: “Taking money from the Ministry of Defense to build a wall will not make us safer. Trump's political stunt will harm border communities and ignore the root causes of migration. We deserve a president with common sense and compassionate immigration plan. & # 39;
