Late Friday, a federal judge, US District Judge Haywood Gilliam of California, has blocked the President from allocating military funds to build a border wall, using a permanent injunction!

Judge Gilliam has issued a temporary injunction before, claiming that President Trump didn’t have the authority to declare a national emergency, and denied the President from using Defense Department funds to build the wall and secure the border with Mexico!

The Hill reported

“Gilliam, an Obama appointee, also issued a ruling in a separate case stopping the Trump administration from moving forward with border wall construction in New Mexico and California while that legal challenge plays out.”

The Epoch Times noted that…

Gilliam was nominated by Obama and confirmed in 2014. He donated to Obama’s campaign in 2008, sending $4,600 to Obama for America and $2,300 to the Obama Victory Fund, according to federal election records. Additionally, “Gilliam donated additional funds to Obama’s re-election campaign, sending $13,500 to Obama for America and Obama Victory Fund 2012. He also donated $4,500 to the Democratic National Committee. From 2012 to November 2014, he sent $3,100 to the Covington and Burling LLP PAC.”

As of yet, the White House has not commented!

This is a developing story…
