Yet another court, the second one in the last two days, rejected this President’s attempt to steal funds from our military to pay for his border wall boondoggle. This President needs to put our nation’s security and servicemembers over his nativist political pandering.

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (FL-23) issued the following statement after the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California tonight became the second federal court in two days to issue nationwide orders blocking the Trump administration from stealing $3.6 billion in military construction funds to build a wall along the United States border. Wasserman Schultz chairs the Military Construction and Veterans Affairs Appropriations Subcommittee, which directs these funds:

“Yet another court, the second one in the last two days, rejected this President’s attempt to steal funds from our military to pay for his border wall boondoggle. It’s not just the Courts that continue to reject this wasteful wall, bipartisan votes in Congress have also rejected this assault on our military families, global security and constitutional separation of powers. Canceling those military projects would hurt our servicemembers and their families, weaken our bases and troop readiness, and embolden global aggressors, especially Russia. This President needs to put our nation’s security and servicemembers over his nativist political pandering.”
