Supreme Court Declines to Hear Challenge to Trump Border Wall


The Supreme Court won’t hear a case challenging the border wall, handing a win to the Trump administration.

In a day of roller coaster legal news, the Supreme Court will let stand a lower court ruling that rejected a bid by environmental groups to stop sections of the border wall being built.

The environmental groups challenged a federal law that allows Homeland Security to waive any laws which would slow down the construction of border fencing.

The groups claimed the law violated the Constitution’s separation of powers, but a lower court dismissed the case.
