  • California loses border wall challenge at appeals court

    My My.

    PASADENA, Calif. (AP) — A federal appeals court has rejected arguments by the state of California and environmental groups who tried to block reconstruction of sections of the U.S.-Mexico border wall.
    The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled Monday that the Trump administration did not exceed its authority by waiving environmental regulations to rebuild sections of wall near San Diego and Calexico.
    The court upheld a lower court ruling that found the Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act of 1996 allows the Department of Homeland Security to avoid lengthy environmental reviews to build border barriers.
    The 2-1 ruling comes as Congress prepares to present the president with a government funding deal that includes some but not all of the money he requested for border wall construction.

    Damn: the 9th Circus actually ruled in favor of the USA!

    Strange days...
    Any man can hold his place when the bands play and women throw flowers; it is when the enemy presses close and metal shears through the ranks that one can acertain which are soldiers, and which are not.

          Quite a surprise. They must be in shock in California. What's next to fall? Sanctuary cities?

            Was listening to Mark Levin last night, he had me rolling with laughter. He said can we please call the barrier a wall? The barrier identifies with being a wall, it looks like a wall and feels like a wall. It would like to be called a wall moving forward.
