Judge blocks Trump from using billions in military funds for border wall

In his ruling Friday, Gilliam wrote that the administration lawyers “present no new evidence or argument for why the court should depart from its prior decision, and it will not.”

“Because no new factual or legal arguments persuade the court that its analysis in the preliminary injunction order was wrong, [the groups’] likelihood of success on the merits has ripened into actual success,” the ruling reads.

The judge also found that the groups suing to block use of military funds for the wall would suffer “irreparable harm” over border wall construction because it “will harm their ability to recreate in and otherwise enjoy public land along the border.”
