Rep. Grijalva Statement on U.S. Court of Appeals Ruling Against Trump's Border Wall

TUCSON— Today, the U.S. Court of Appeals D.C. Circuit ruled in favor of the House Democrats lawsuit challenging the Trump Administration for diverting billions of dollars in military funds to build Trump’s wall along the Southern border. In response, Rep. Raúl M. Grijalva issued the following statement:

“The court reaffirmed what we’ve known all along. President Trump violated the Constitution and illegally stole congressionally-appropriated funds to build his border wall after Congress refused to fully fund it. Every mile built of the wall was illegally funded by the President’s corruption, and I’m pleased the court saw the Trump Administration’s legal rationales for the bogus excuses they were.

“The Constitution enumerates the separation of powers for a reason. It is Congress that appropriates  funds, not the President. I will keep fighting to ensure that the Trump Administration does not violate the law to circumvent the will of Congress in the future.”
