The Wall: Update: Federal Judge blocks emergency spending on the Wall

I don’t think this is correct. Iirc Dems thought that PR wasn’t getting enough aid or relief, Feinstein voted yes on cloture then Schumer had her vote with the caucus on the actual bill. That’s not uncommon. 

Could be the case. I would enjoy reading about it if you have a link.

The article I linked mentioned the vote was on April 1. Your link is before that and makes no mention of Feinstein and cloture.

I realize that, this is the first vote, it went 90-10 and has Schumer explaining the caucus might turn against it.

I think they are two different things. Anyway, no worries. Just typical politics. Like I said, I am confident they will get this done next week.

A federal judge on Friday temporarily blocked the Trump administration from spending billions to construct a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border with money from Trump national emergency declaration.

U.S. District Court Judge Haywood Gilliam’s ruling applies to construction in specific areas in Texas and Arizona.

“In short, the position that when Congress declines the Executive’s request to appropriate funds, the executive nonetheless may simply find a way to spend those funds “without Congress” does not square with fundamental separation of powers principles dating back to the earliest days of our republic.”

Have we discussed in here the fact that the $1.5 billion in “wall” funding has yielded roughly 1.7 miles of fence over about a year and a half?

At this rate we will have a full fence in only 1000 years or so, costing $2 trillion adjusted for inflation! Woohoo!

There's no way a baby could crawl 1.7 miles.

I guess it sounds like there’s still some funds Trump has access to, just not the military sources?

However: “The court blocked all the wall projects currently slated for immediate construction.”

In a year and a half? Hmm.  This might require a wager.

What's the current average crawling speed of an 8 month old?

President Trump would prefer more European swallows. The African ones fly here from ####hole nests.
