BREAKING: Federal Court Just Approved Trump’s Wall, Overruled Democrats!

A U.S.-Mexico border wall, a key item promised by Trump to his political base of supporters, has become a sticking point in talks to keep alive a federal program protecting young people brought to the United States illegally as children from deportation. A U.S. judge on Tuesday had sided with Trump’s administration and rejected an attempt by California and environmental groups to stop the federal government from building a wall on the state’s border with Mexico. California currently has some sections of existing barriers.

The lawsuit filed in a San Diego federal court alleged that Trump’s proposed wall violates federal environmental standards and constitutional provisions regarding the separation of powers and states’ rights. The plaintiffs asked U.S. District Judge Gonzalo Curiel to stop the administration from pursuing the barrier until it demonstrates compliance with environmental laws. “Big victory yesterday with ruling from the courts that allows us to proceed. OUR COUNTRY MUST HAVE BORDER SECURITY!” Trump added in a tweet on Wednesday.

It was unclear what Trump meant about parts of the wall California wants built, given the state’s opposition to the whole idea. Attorney General Xavier Becerra said after the ruling his office remained opposed to the border wall and would evaluate its options.

Though while that ruling in itself is surprising considering that this was a California court, there were more shockers in store for the Trump administration. As it turns out, one of the judges that ruled in favor of the wall was U.S. District Court Judge Gonzalo P. Curiel, who President Trump believed in the past would be biased against the wall since he is from Mexican descent.

Curiel wrote in his opinion waiving the environmental red tape that it was not up to him to decide if this was a good policy or not. The only thing that was up for discussion was if the government had the power to build the wall and in fact, they do.

Here is more from The Western Journal:The ruling Tuesday has paved the way for President Donald Trump to construct his border wall, which the state of California and environmental groups have been trying to prevent, according to The Washington Times.

U.S. District Court Judge Gonzalo P. Curiel, who Trump has previously called biased due to his Mexican heritage, made the ruling that will allow the administration to waive environmental laws and build sections of the wall.
 The judge said that “he wasn’t opining on whether a wall was good or bad policy — but had to conclude the government has the power to build it.”

“It is not our job to protect the people from the consequences of their political choices,” Curiel said in his 101-page ruling.

He wrote that both Congress and the executive branch “share responsibilities in protecting the country from terrorists and contraband illegally entering at the border,” Fox News reported.

“Border security is paramount to stemming the flow of illegal immigration that contributes to rising violent crime and to the drug crisis, and undermines national security,” Justice Department spokesman Devin O’Malley said. “Congress gave authority to the Department of Homeland Security to construct a border wall without delay to prevent illegal entry into the United States, and we are pleased DHS can continue this important work vital to our nation’s interests.”

California Attorney General Xavier Becerra responded to the ruling in a statement that his office “will evaluate all of our options and are prepared to do what is necessary to protect our people, our values, and our economy from federal overreach.”

“A medieval wall along the U.S.-Mexico border simply does not belong in the 21st century,” he said.

Judge Curiel was attacked by then-candidate Trump in 2016.

In relation to a lawsuit involving Trump University, Trump asserted that Curiel, whose parents emigrated from Mexico, held “tremendous hostility” against him because of the judge’s Mexican descent.

Of course, this ruling has sent shockwaves through the Beltway as liberals are screeching in horror that a judge who is of Mexican descent could rule in favor of this wall, but they are missing the point. A judge is not to make law from the bench or use their power to promote liberal agenda’s but to interpret the law and enforce it.

The law states that the Trump administration does have the authority to build the wall to secure our borders and no matter what your political affiliation is those are the facts. Maybe if more judges followed in U.S. District Court Judge Gonzalo P. Curiel’s footsteps are country would get back on track, but sadly there are too many leftists on the bench pushing the liberal agenda.
