Supreme Court Will Hear Case About Border Wall Funding

Like Love Haha Wow Sad Angry

The Supreme Court on Monday agreed to review a pair of disputes over Trump administration immigration policies, including the president’s diversion of military funds to build a wall along the United States’ southern border and a policy requiring asylum-seekers to remain in Mexico while their cases proceed through American courts.

The cases are expected to be heard sometime after the anticipated confirmation of President Trump’s third justice, Amy Coney Barrett, and are likely to present the first major legal confrontation over Trump immigration policy to the 6-3 conservative majority court.

In both instances, the administration sought Supreme Court review after lower federal courts rebuffed the president’s bids to curb migration into the U.S. from Mexico.

One case involves Trump’s appeal of a June ruling by a federal appeals court in California that his administration’s use of Pentagon funding to build a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border is illegal.
