Supreme Court tosses Trump’s appeal in border wall funding case

Former President Donald Trump’s attempts to use special funding provided through the National Emergencies Act to fund a portion of his promised wall at the southern U.S. border was challenged multiple times in all levels of the court system.

According to the Washington Examiner, it appears as if the case has been put out to pasture, as the U.S. Supreme Court on Friday tossed an appeal from the former president on the border wall funding, effectively kicking the case back to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, with instructions to vacate all judgments in the case.

The basis of Friday’s ruling, which came in the form of an unsigned order, was mostly centered on the fact that Trump is no longer the president, and also because President Joe Biden has taken an entirely different direction on the immigration issue, including canceling border wall construction and reversing most of Trump’s immigration policies.

The case, formally known as Trump v. Sierra Club, made its way to the high court on several occasions throughout Trump’s presidency, as a number of groups made legal attempts to stop the former president from using NEA funding to build the border wall.

In virtually every instance of defending his case in various levels of the U.S. court system, Trump and his legal team were met with defeat, as multiple courts continually ruled in favor of his opponents in the particular matter.

However, the Trump administration scored a notable victory in 2019 in the ongoing legal battle after SCOTUS issued a stay on an injunction that blocked border wall funds previously issued by the Ninth Circuit. A year later, the high court would refuse to lift the stay, which was good news for Trump, and led to yet another battle to argue that the Sierra Club lacked standing to sue the administration over the matter.

At that time, the Supreme Court scheduled arguments for the case for the first part of 2021, but ultimately Trump failed to win a second term in the White House. Given Biden’s insistence on reversing most of Trump’s immigration and border policies, the case was ultimately rendered moot.

While the completion of the border wall — one of Trump’s cornerstone 2016 campaign promises — never came to fruition, it certainly wasn’t for a lack of trying.

However, there’s still hope that a wall will be constructed, at least on part of the border, as Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) has pledged to use his gubernatorial powers to pick up where Trump left off, according to The Dallas Morning News.

With what has been going on at our border ever since the demorats stole the election is treason against America. any so calles judges that do not want a safe country , and to end the human trafficking should be disbarred immediately, and permanently. Drugs, M S13 members and terrorists coming in from around .the world. And they are defunding our law enforcement and trying to take our right to defend ourselves.
What is this if not treason?

Biden is killing America with his lack of border wall protection and the SCOTUS voted President Trump’s case MOOT. I just don’t know about the SCOTUS. I have a bad feeling about them. Not just because of this case but what they did to President Trump when a fraudulent election in 2020 was stolen from President Trump. Every case sent to the SCOTUS was tossed out. When it states in the Constitution, that they are to rule by, they ignored the Constitution. So it’s all puzzling to me. I get too pissed off when I comment on them.
