BREAKING: Another “Obama Judge” Blocks Trump’s Border-Wall Plans

Another federal judge appointed by Obama has blocked Trump’s border plans.

Per Wikipedia, On September 8, 2014, President Obama nominated Gilliam to serve as a United States District Judge of the United States District Court for the Northern District of California, to the seat vacated by Judge Claudia Ann Wilken, who took senior status in December 2014.BREAKING: Another “Obama Judge” Blocks Trump’s Border-Wall Plans

From WSJ

A federal judge late Friday dealt a blow to the White House’s plans to build a wall along the southern U.S. border, blocking Trump administration officials from moving forward on construction projects with funds that Congress hadn’t approved.

U.S. District Judge Haywood Gilliam in Oakland, Calif., said President Trump’s plans to divert federal money to build a border wall, absent appropriations from Congress, exceeded the executive’s authority.

“Congress’s ‘absolute’ control over federal expenditures—even when that control may frustrate the desires of the Executive Branch regarding initiatives it views as important—is not a bug in our constitutional system,” Judge Gilliam, an Obama appointee, wrote in a 56-page decision. “It is a feature of that system, and an essential one.”

The judge issued a preliminary injunction that blocks the administration from proceeding on projects slated for immediate construction.

If and when the Trump administration announces additional projects at the border, the challengers in the case—environmentalists and southern border community organizations—can come back to court and seek an injunction against those as well, the judge said.

The ruling is the first of its kind on the issue. Several other border-wall cases are pending around the country, including one in Washington, D.C., where the Democratic-controlled House of Representatives is suing the Trump administration.

Obama appointed black judges because they were black and could be his little puppets – these judges should be so ashamed of themselves knowing that they have no guts and are controlled by this loser obama who still can’t shut up and go away like other presidents – he has to stay in the limelight because he is so arrogant
