So the conservative Court Justices ruled against the Appropriation Clause.

"The Appropriations Clause is the cornerstone of Congress's "power of the purse." It assigns to Congress the role of final arbiter of the use of public funds. The source of Congress's power to spend derives from Article I, Section 8, Clause 1. The Appropriations Clause provides Congress with a mechanism to control or to limit spending by the federal government."

ON EDIT: President Trump just issued a tweet saying:

WOW! Big VICTORY on the Wall. The United States Supreme Court overturns a lower court injunction, allows Southern Border Wall to proceed. Big WIN for Border Security and the Rule of Law!
Good.

Now let’s get that southern border sealed and stop all the illegals coming from Mexico, like should’ve been done decades ago.

There's your link...Trump plays on average 87 times per year. Obama played an average of 42 times per year. It was your side that posted that Obama only played golf...just proving once again how wrong your side is.


I don't give a rotund rat's rear end how many times a year a president plays golf.......

I care about what he does when he's not golfing.

...the President and the Supreme Court are two out of three.

And if you consider that it's mostly Dems in Congress withholding funds out of spite because they're still butthurt over losing in 2016....

It's really more like 2.5 out of 3.

" Dems have been stalling and blocking for years any attempt at border security"


BUT they rallied behind obama's want to build border walls/fences.


We have the videos of them pushing to do it.

I've had mixed feelings about "The Great Wall of the United States of America" since Trump started haranguing about it. I thought it sounded kinda stupid, to be honest. Then the Dems went full retard and started supporting illegal immigration. Now Trump's wall sounds like a fantastic idea.

Want to end the whole business of children in cages, 80% of women getting raped by their traffickers, people dying in the desert, caravans numbering in the thousands coming through Mexico, rampant disease, people drinking out of toilets, toddlers being sold into sex slavery, etc.?? Want all that to end? Build the wall. Put troops on the border to patrol and guard that wall. Make sure to monitor for people tunneling under or going over. But you kinda gotta build the damn wall. Utilize every bit of tech at our disposal to make it a truly impassible barrier. Make the whole idea of getting here to begin with look so impossibly difficult, they simply stay home. Then, IMHO, you increase our legal immigration quotas and massively simplify the naturalization and citizenship process. We get it. Migrants want to come here. The USA is awesome and their countries absolutely suck. Any sane person already knows this. So completely shut down the illegal ways of getting here and make it easier to do it legally.

PS: The whole thing gets 1000% easier if you decriminalize all illicit drugs and put the drug smugglers out of business. Then you can fully focus on illegal human trafficking at the border.

The INCREASE in tariffs to Mexico is helping.
