Federal judge declares Trump border proclamation unlawful | TheHill


A federal judge in Texas declared on Friday that President Trump‘s proclamation of a national emergency on the southern border is unlawful, blocking the plan to divert funding for a border wall.
Judge David Briones of the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Texas said in his opinion that the plan would be blocked after getting input from both sides in a lawsuit for the scope of an injunction.
The lawsuit was brought by El Paso County in Texas and a group called the Border Network for Human Rights. Briones was appointed to the court by President Bill Clinton.
