Supreme Court denies request to halt construction of the border wall

The Supreme Court by a 5-4 vote has denied a request to halt construction of President Trump’s border wall over liberal environmental concerns.

Many groups, including the ACLU and Sierra Club, asked the high court to get involved again after the justices last year cleared the way for the administration to use military funds for construction while the case played out in the courts.

A federal appeals court had ruled against the administration last month, but the justices, for now, have given this temporary victory to the administration.

As expected the four liberal justices dissented from Friday’s order.
