Skip to comments.Trump broke the law by using military money for border wall, appeals court rules

A federal appeals court decided 2-1 Friday that the Trump administration violated the law when it used military funds to build a wall on the Mexican border.
The U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals said the power of the purse belongs to Congress, and the administration lacked constitutional authority to transfer the military money. Two Democratic appointees were in the majority. A Trump appointee dissented.

Likely not however, the people crossing the border illegally, that’s ok with the Democrats.
Goes to the SCOTUS next................
HR cuff and stuff? Orange Man Bad!
The left is not going to let up until a vast majority cries “Uncle”. To believe that somehow being right is going to win over the rabid left and those they have convinced (or better yet, guilted) is delusional.
the 9th circus has been communist and violently anti-American for years
it needs to be fixed ASAP!
Interesting. Was it in their last approved budget? Oh wait, Congress doesn't actually write budgets anymore, they just pass resolutions to give the same amount as last time plus more without specifics. I'd say they've delegated that authority then.
Already-appropriated money can be redirected at the need of the executive. This is not seeking appropriation of new money.
This is probably the last hurrah of the leftist Ninth Circus before they finally get turned conservative by a new Trump appointee.
YEAH, 9TH, RIIIIGHT.....................

POTUS is making it more conservative. This is why his second term is vital. If Biden gets in it all gets turned back to the other direction.
Might have to be the next session. They finish up cases next week. Not sure what would happen between now and when the supremes take the case. Plus Im sure some of the funds were spent already.
So what - DACA was unconstitutional too.
What else can it be?
“Two Democratic appointees were in the majority. A Trump appointee dissented.”
Just remember, according to Roberts, judges are not political.
He didn’t “use” military money. He “redirected” it.
I think SCOTUS already ruled previously that it was OK to transfer.
As usual, Trump is following the law but the left doesn’t like it, so the find judges that don’t care about the law. Just their ideology.
Just curious wonder where Obama got all that money to give to Iran on the pallets on the private jet
