Federal judge rules that Biden administration cannot divert funds from border wall construction | 9 March 2024 | A federal judge ruled on Friday against the Biden administration's plans to re-direct money from border wall construction to other projects more to its liking, such as environmental remediation. Judge Drew B. Tipton, of the Southern District of Texas, said that it is up to Congress how that money is spent. Congress allocated nearly $1.4 billion for wall-building for fiscal years 2020 and 2021, according to The Washington Times. But the Biden regime argued that the "remediation projects" they wanted to spend that money on were ancillary to the wall, and that it should be allowed. Judge Tipton said that based on the way the law was written, it was clear and specific that the money was intended to be spent on barriers along the border.
