A Liberal California judge issued a ruling blocking President Trump from using $2.5 billion in military funds to build a wall along the southern border.
The ruling by U.S. District Court Judge Haywood Gilliam, who is an Obama Appointed activist Judge, ruled to permanently block the $2.5 billion after issuing a temporary injunction in May to stop the administration’s use of the funds.
The ruling halts several construction projects in California, Arizona, and New Mexico. Gilliam ruled in two lawsuits on Friday.
The first, brought by the American Civil Liberties Union on behalf of the Sierra Club and the Southern Border Communities Coalition, came in response to Trump’s national emergency declaration transferring $6.7 billion in military funds to border wall construction.
In Japan, where he had attended the G-20 Summit in Osaka, Trump vowed to appeal the judge’s ruling. “We’re immediately appealing it and we think we’ll win the appeal … there was no reason that that should have happened,” he said at a press conference.

Trump also threatened to reengage his plan to crack down on illegal immigrants in the near future, saying, “We will be removing large numbers of people … starting in a week after, you know, sometime after July 4.”
