    Supreme Court says border wall construction can continue

    The Supreme Court said Friday that President Trump can continue to build the border wall even as legal challenges work their way through lower courts, rejecting a demand by the ACLU and environmental groups an immediate halt.
    I'm sure the real reason is the environment...LOL

    Democrats both on and off the court know this wall is needed for national security

    Interesting result. It's usually a perilous business trying to "read the tea leaves" from a denial of a preliminary injunction to try and ferret out how the Court will rule on the merits if/when the merits of the case get to them; however, in this case, if the wall continues to be built and it ultimately turns out that it was being built illegally, then it definitely does seem to be the case that some irreparable injury will have taken place - it's not that simple to just knock the illegally-built wall down and go back to pristine undeveloped land.

    All of which suggests, if one wants to indulge in peril, that the Court would likely rule in favor of the Trump administration on the merits.

    But, that is just pure speculation at this point.

    No, it shouldn't. But then, if they were all Constitutionalists, no ruling would be that close.

    Maybe some, like the ACLU, believe a wall can be xenophobic.
