President Trump on Saturday tore into what he described as an “activist Obama appointed judge” after a Federal judge blocked the administration’s planning for the reallocation of money to a wall on the southern border with Mexico.

“Another activist Obama appointed judge just against us is already under construction and decided on a section of the Southern wall,” he said. “This is a judgment against cross-border security and benefit of crime, drug and human trafficking.”


Trump went on to say that the administration ask for”, a fast-track appeal.”

The U. S prevented the District Court judge Haywood Gilliam judgment late on Friday temporarily that the management of the use of reallocated and the funds for two wall projects in Arizona and Texas through the redirection of money that Congress has not approved.

Trump declared a national state of emergency in February, and it is with this Declaration, to redirect funds from the Pentagon, to the Congress not agree, the President of the demand for more than $5 billion in the wall financing.

“Congress” absolute ” control over Federal spending-even if the controls can be frustrating the wishes of the Executive in relation to initiatives that they view as important-not a bug in our constitutional order. It is a feature of this system, and a key,” Gilliam, a representative of the former President Barack Obama, wrote in his opinion.

“In short, the position that, if Congress rejects the claim of the Executive to appropriate funds, the Executive branch, nevertheless, you can easily find a way to spend these funds” without the Congress, “does not square with basic separation of powers principles Dating back to the earliest days of our Republic,” he said.


Gilliam judgment does not stop financing the Trump manage with other sources of the wall, and he rejected a request from California and 19 other States to prevent the diversion of $600 million in the state Treasury to the wall.


Trump, in which the Declaration of a national emergency, after a 35-day government shutdown was controversial, on both sides of the aisle. A resolution of negative Declaration passed both chambers of Congress, but was vetoed on the President’s Desk. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and the democratic Senate leader Chuck Schumer, D-NY, called it a “takeover of power by a disappointed President” in a statement.

The Congress had OK’d $requested 1.4 billion for border security, but it was in the vicinity of $5 billion Trump.

The White house, the eyes could be moved an additional $8 billion in existing funding that could be moved for the wall, $ 3.5 billion, of which, of the U.S. Department of defense military construction costs over the emergency Declaration.

Trump predicted a difficult legal battle, as he declared a national emergency and said that he believed it would end up in the Supreme court


“We will be a national state of emergency, and then we will be sued” Trump said, adding that the federal appeals courts rule against his government could. “Then we will end up in the Supreme court, and hopefully we ll get a fair Chance, and we are going to win before the Supreme court, as well as the [travel] ban.”

The case is part of a series of actions of the management, the statement said. On Thursday, a judge in Washington heard arguments in a lawsuit from the house of representatives, claiming that it violates the Constitution.

The judge considered whether the house can sue the President instead of the settlement of disputes through the political process.
