A federal judge has blocked President Trump from diverting Pentagon funds from various military projects toward building a wall on the United States's southern border. Judge David Briones of the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Texas issued the block in response to a lawsuit by El Paso County, Texas, and the Border Network for Human Rights."The President's emergency proclamation was a blatant attempt to grab power from Congress. Today's order affirms that the President is not a king and that our courts are willing to check him when he oversteps his bounds," Kristy Parker, an attorney for the litigants, said in a statement.Secretary of Defense Mark Esper approved

I have to agree with the judge. It would make more sense and would be WAY less expensive if we just shot 'em the second they stepped across the border.

OK, how about this: The President controls the Treasury Dept., which runs the IRS. We can check a box on our 1040 to divert some of our payment to election funding. SO...how about a check-off box to divert some of our tribute to go to building our southern defense border? Or, a box to DONATE to that end. But with a catch: if it is not spent in the next tax year, it must be refunded to the taxpayer with 6% interest.

Pardon me. My fingers are not working that well and I hit the submit button by mistake. Ever notice that any good thing for the country and a democrat is on hand to stop it. They never give thought that the American people elected this President to enact the agenda on which he was elected? It’s never about anyone else’s wants or needs but theirs. Democrats are just selfish toddlers who cannot abide being told no. I hope and pray that they hear the biggest “no” on election night in 2020 that they have ever heard. I am sick of their obstruction. The judiciary is out of control. When one branch of government sees itself as having more power than another, then we are going to have big problems. All these activist judges are doing is undermining the Republic. They are obstructing the Executive Branch from doing its Constitutional duties. National security is in the per view of the Executive Branch. This judge and others like him who do not understand the concept of three equal branches of government should be removed from the bench.

More judicial overreach to facilitate the "resistance". Soon there will be a hold placed on the activist judge's actions by a higher court that recognizes that Trump has the authority to do this and the ultimate resolution will be in his favor. We need a new law that says that singular district judge actions regarding the executive branch (and perhaps the legislative branch) are AUTOMATICALLY stayed until passing joint or higher court review. Individual circuit judges should NOT have such broad national level power. Such a law would dissuade individual judges from taking such fruitless actions in what is ultimately only a show. Further, individual judges that continually issue such judgments, ultimately wasting everyone's time, should be sanctioned in some embarrassing manner, like having to get a cosignature on their decisions for a time.

Time to clean up Austin. The rot in that city is tainting the entire state. Austin is one of a couple of leftist nests of corruption, and it needs to be dealt with.Since the House is supposedly finished with their phony articles, I wish Trump would just ignore the illegal ruling and just keep on building. That judge needs to seriously explain themselves, and maybe feel the force of Federal action. Like having illegals bused into his neighborhood. Totally legal now thanks to Obama.

The 5th Circuit is use to overturning this back robed demigod. The most recent invovling illegals was in Aug this year. This Clinton judge tried to say a deproted illegal of 4 times couldn't be deported a fifth time cause in 2013, the first deportation, the goobernment didn't give proper notice of deportation. It didn't take three 5th circuit judges long to overturn that nonsense. This El Paso legislator from the bench will be overturned on this one.

Trump should start playing hard ball with these clowns and just ignore whatever a Federal judge says he must do. Just announce the separation of powers doesn't allow the courts or the House to micromanage the President so he should just do what he wants. WWOD? (What would Obama do? Executive order!)

While Congress does have the authority to limit judicial authority it never does and consequently this misbehavior remains a constant thorn in our sides. Not to the left of course, they learned long ago that the courts and bureaucracy are almost permanent ways to hold on to power - -even when out of office. The current problem is that our Chief Justice, John Roberts, is a coward. It is well within his authority to stop this judicial overreach where local judges issue dictates that affect the entire country.

PDT should ignore the judge. There is precedent - Smidgen ignored the judge’s ruling on ending the ban on deep water drilling after the Gulf oil spill in 2009. As far as I know, the ban is still in effect. I try to alway fill up my car at a BP station because Smidgen screwed them so badly after the oil spill. Luckily, there are 2 stations within 2 miles of my house.

El Paso County has more Mexicans than almost all of Mexico itself, yes, an exaggeration, but you get the picture. A major highway bisects the border through and around most of El Paso proper. We drove it on the way to Fort Bliss. That some of those folks come over, work and go home to Mexico every day is not the problem, it’s the drug runners, cartels and other foreign nationals who have NO RIGHT to commit the felony of entering our country ILLEGALLY. What is wrong with the county for bringing this suit in the first place? Bad advice from activist lawyers paid by the DNC?

OK, Trump is not a king, but he IS the President, and he is the one who gets to decide what an emergency is or is not. NOT some damned low level judge. Not the judge's place to second guess a President calling an emergency. Clearly this is right in the Executive Branch's job description, and even more clearly, NOT in the Judicial branch's job description. Try to enforce this, judge. You have no troops, no officers, maybe a bailiff with a 9mm. Send her out.

I believe that the executive decision to use national defense appropriated funds for certain national defense related projects along the borderline to build an effective borderline barrier, was made in conjunction with a national emergency declaration by the President. If a federal district judge, there are over 600 of them around the country, can issue a permanent injunction stopping an elected President’s national emergency declaration, it follows that politicized federal judges could take it upon themselves to stop all the President’s initiatives including efforts to stop the country from being overrun by what amounts to a silent invasion of illegal aliens and illicit drugs that he was elected to accomplish.

Castillo, an Afghanistan war veteran, and his wife bought the home using military benefits and grew their family into their new neighborhood -- about half a mile from a bend in the Rio Grande. They never imagined a border wall could dissect their property someday. But the first letter, stamped with an official government seal, arrived about a year ago.
