Supreme Court allows border wall spending in battle between President Donald Trump and liberal opponents

 The Supreme Court ruled Friday that President Trump can use $2.5 billion in military funding to build a portion of his long-sought wall along the nation’s southern border. 

The high court’s order temporarily settles just one of several skirmishes between the Trump administration and House Democrats, “blue” states led by California, and environmental groups over border wall funds.

The court’s four liberal justices said they would have denied the spending while the lawsuit over the border wall continues to work its way through the courts. One of them, Associate Justice Stephen Breyer, would have allowed preliminary planning but not the appropriation of funds.–USAToday
