Appeals Court Allows Trump To Divert $3.6 Billion In Military Funds For Border Wall

The border wall set back from the geographical border, in El Paso, Texas. The White House said Thursday that an appeals court ruling has cleared the way for border wall construction to resume.

The decision by the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals reverses a lower court order that blocked the president from using the U.S. Defense Department money to build the long-promised wall.
