Second judge blocks Trump from using billions in Pentagon funds to build border wall
A federal judge in California blocked President Trump on Wednesday from diverting $3.6 billion from military projects to build the border wall.
The big picture: This follows a nationwide injunction issued on Tuesday by a Texas judge, who also argued that Trump's national emergency was unlawful. The administration is now blocked from using about one-third of the total funds that were allocated for the border wall, signaling that it intended to appeal after the Texas' judge ruling on Tuesday.
