[size=36]US court bans Trump from using $ 3.6 billion to build the border wall[/size]
The lawsuit also stated that Trump's declaration does not meet the national emergency law's definition of "emergency", and contradicts his statements that border barriers have led to a decrease in crime in El Paso.
And last September, Defense Secretary Mark Esber authorized the transfer of $ 3.6 billion in military construction funds to 11 wall projects on the South American border with Mexico.
Half of the money was coming from deferred projects overseas, and the other half was planned for projects in the United States, the Pentagon said at the time.
The $ 3.6 billion funding allocation is one of two allocations that the Trump administration chose to convert to the wall, in a February national emergency announcement.
The construction of the wall is one of Trump's most prominent promises to his popular base, as he claims to limit the influx of refugees from Mexico and the rest of Latin America, who he says are the main reason behind the high levels of crime in the United States of America. End / 29 / p
