Appeals court rules for Trump taking military money for wall

HOUSTON (AP) — A fed­er­al appeals court ruled Fri­day that a low­er court was wrong to bar the Trump admin­is­tra­tion from tak­ing $3.6 bil­lion from mil­i­tary con­struc­tion projects for a bor­der wall.

A pan­el of the 5th U.S. Cir­cuit Court of Appeals said that El Paso Coun­ty and the non­prof­it Bor­der Net­work for Human Rights did not have the stand­ing to chal­lenge Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump’s redi­rect­ing funds from more than 100 mil­i­tary con­struc­tion projects, includ­ing a $20 mil­lion road project at a base locat­ed in the city. The appeals court found that nei­ther the coun­ty nor the Bor­der Net­work proved it was direct­ly harmed by Trump’s move. The court reversed a Decem­ber 2019 rul­ing by U.S. Dis­trict Judge David Briones.
