Supreme Court dismisses environmentalist objections to border wall construction

The liberal resistance against building the border wall just took a major hit.

The Supreme Court has declined to hear arguments that the building of the wall would have ill effects on the ecosystems in places where construction is expected to happen.

Reaching Too Far

The powers that be on the left are looking for any reason to impede the building of the border wall.

One of the latest attempts to block its construction was mounted by the Center for Biological Diversity (CBD).

A senior attorney for the group, Brian Segee, claimed that Trump’s border wall would put ecosystems in danger by disregarding protective legislation.

Segee has even gone so far to say Trump is violating our Constitution by building the wall.

“Trump has abused his power to wreak havoc along the border to secure political points,” Segee stated.

He added, “He’s illegally sweeping aside bedrock environmental and public health laws. We’ll continue to fight Trump’s dangerous wall in the courts and in Congress.”

Existing Legislation

While Segee makes the argument Trump is violating the law, the president is actually following the law.

In 1996, legislation was created that allowed for a waiver of certain environmental laws to protect the security of the country.

This legislation was put into place to expedite construction to protect our borders when needed.

And if there was ever a time when immediate construction was needed, it is now.

The person and/or organization that needs to be held under scrutiny is Segee and the CBD, NOT President Trump.
