ACLU to Sue WH Over $3.6B Border Wall Funding

The American Civil Liberties Union said it would seek a court injunction blocking President Donald Trump’s diversion of $3.6 billion from military construction projects for his wall on the southern U.S. border with Mexico.

The injunction is part of the ACLU’s lawsuit filed in February challenging Trump’s use of emergency powers to secure funding that Congress had denied for the wall.

“The fact that the government sat on these so-called ’emergency funds’ for seven months further confirms that this is nothing but an unlawful power grab,” Dror Ladin, staff attorney with the ACLU’s National Security Project, said in a statement Tuesday.

“We’ll be back in court very soon to block Trump’s latest effort to raid military funds for his xenophobic wall,” he said.

Defense Secretary Mark Esper had approved the use of $3.6 billion to build 175 miles of Trump’s border wall.

But Pentagon officials would not say which 127 military projects would be affected by the diversion, adding that details would be available Wednesday after Congress was notified.

Half the money would come from military projects in the U.S., and the rest from projects in other countries, officials said.

Elaine McCusker, the Pentagon comptroller, said the money would be used to build 11 border projects.

  1. Alcu you have no say about suing this is not your clients country they all belong back in there trouble country. You are the ones to be sued and lose every cent and business you have. I want to sue you for everything you have this is my country and I want to protect it from asshole lawyers like you or the illegals that are pulling your chain. I think you need to be sued and have to pay interest since the money you are using is taxpayers money to sue and not yours

    1. Agreed 1000% keep your lizard ACLU noses out of America’s security buisness.This is America’s wall not Trump’s we want it American Patriots.Your org is treasonous Soros supported garbage.

      1. I agree 100%. The ACLU can go eff themselves. We want safe closed Borders, no terrorism, no crime and no illness brought into our Country. It is being ruined by People whom have been inducted into our Government. They are vile, sneaky & they are hate mongers. Everyone should know who I mean!!

          1. I Totally agree. The ACLU is the one that is racist.

            We Americans Want and Need the Wall.
            Go back & crawl under the rock you came from.

            It’s Not President Trumps Wall. It is Our Wall. OUR = The citizens of the United States of America.

            We Don’t need or want you here.!!

            PRESIDENT TRUMP & VP PENCE 2020

    2. Are you aware that some of the founders of the ACLU had ties with the Soviet Union at that time? Seen in that light, their activities since then make more sense. JMO

    3. The ACLU will not go after the DOEducation for producing books for the teaching of Islam in our schools, but they will go after Trump for trying to build a wall to keep a bunch of criminals out of our country. Criminals who are raping and murdering and walking away in the illegal sanctuary cities and states.
      Every president before Trump said we should enforce our borders to protect our country – Obama, Clinton, Bush, Carter — all of them, but NOW the Dems want open borders in order to take over the country to convert to socialism.
      BUILD THE DAMN WALL and put the ACLU on the other side of it.

  2. The ACLU cannot even stay true to their name “American”. How could we trust them to be responsible stewards of our rights. They continually support terrorists, illegal trespassers, and dumb legislation. All of which are against American citizens’s interests.

  3. Just a SIMPLE question: “WHAT happened to ALL of the money that was APPROVED by Congress in the past for the wall….??? Apparently, the wall was NEVER build BEFORE President Trump became President and is now just doing what he had promised to do, unlike the creatures BEFORE him……!!!! HOW was ALL of THAT money RE-ALLOCATED/USED…??? Or did it end up in PRIVATE Bank Accounts “somewhere”…..?????

    1. I believe someone posted the actual amount about a week ago in a post similar to this very one. It was something like $4.5 Billion Approved for the building of the wall… I think it said 2006-2010 time frame… Not certain of actual date… Evidently no one seems to know where the money went…. BUT, it didn’t get used to build the wall… On another note: No one seemed to care when then President Obama made his speeches regarding how critical it was to STOP the un-documented, un-vetted invasion of ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS coming across our UN-PROTECTED BORDER… He, PRESIDENT OBAMA BUILT the so called CAGES all you Democrats lie about and blame President Trump… your mouthpiece fake news media going as far as showing video of children in cages- only to find out those videos were filmed during OBAMAS PRESIDENCY! Another LIE DEBUNKED… and the most corrupt, irresponsible, unprofessional, unethical, deceitful, ignorant, biased fake news media- ran the story on numerous networks, having never taken a minute to CONFIRM ITS VALIDITY! … and SADLY the young people in our country BELIEVED these liars…these political mouthpieces of the radical socialist Democratic Party, and still do. They’ve been brainwashed by all the lies, all the fabricated untrue stories, the coverups, then, even when the lies are debunked, even when the facts are exposed and the untrue stories are proved wrong… they, (the Democrats and The Media, BURY them or they print an apology or a correction, in fine print, in the middle of page 25, so basically few if any see it… They should be FORCED to place it on the FRONT PAGE!
      The radical socialist Democratic Party wants to change OUR CONSTITUTION to suit them… Destroy the Second Amendment so they can first, write stricter laws for firearms, then ultimately leading to gun confiscation… Take away the ABILITY FOR LAW ABIDING CITIZENS TO DEFEND THEMSELVES AND THEIR FAMILIES… They also want to ABOLISH OUR ELECTORAL COLLEGE, so they can CONTROL the outcome of future PRESIDENTIAL ELECTIONS… still think they CARE ABOUT YOU IR ME? I don’t think so. Want the want is:
      POWER AND CONTROL! They want everyone totally dependent on the government for EVERYTHING… and at a HUGE COST to each one of us…. I only hope and pray that come Election Time somehow everyone USES THEIR GOD GIVEN COMMON SENSE and VOTES all these destructive, care nothing about you or me radical socialist democrats out of office… and VOTE INTO OFFICE, only those candidates that will honor their oath to protect and preserve our constitution, protect our country, and do all they possibly can to keep all American Citizens Safe and Secure in their homes… GOD BLESS OUR GREAT NATION AND GOD BLESS ALL OF YOU!
      🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸❤️

        1. Soros has appointed John Podesta [Clinton’s “fixer” since their AK days] to use his ACLU and any of his other BS private organizations to sue and try to stop “any” and “everything” that Pres Trump tired to accomplish …

          They used the ACLU and their Seirra Club to try to stop Brian’s part of the Wall that his gofund me campaign had created…The Dept of Defense has already addressed all matters on this issue ~ It was surplus never used and besides under National Security the Dep of Defense could do their own construction with military troops….

          Just one more of the Shadow gov and the Deep States ploys to feed to their fake news sources….

      1. Well said, the ACLU needs to be held accountable for interfering with our elected President. They are part of the insane liberal demotard tyrunts…ie Sorehose, Obummers, Clintons and on down the line. Personally I think we need to purge this USA of ANYONE who cannot recite, fully believe in and commit to OUR Pledge of Allegiance…
        ACLU wouldn’t represent me because I wasn’t a democrat or a high profile case, I’m very sorry I asked for their help, I won’t ever again. They will disappear with the self-imploding demotards.

      2. Every word you say is true. The Dems object to funds for the wall. Well, I live in Nevada, and the cost to incarcerate illegals (yes, illegals, not undocumented whatever) is $22 million a year. That adds up fast, and why isn’t the country of origin of these illegals paying for this cost and for all costs of medical, education, welfare for these illegals. That might get them to slow down the invasion. And now they are coming in from Africa through South America and demanding transportation to the U.S. So build the wall and reinforce it with our military. And get rid of the birthright citizenship, which is the way for the Dems to get more voters. Illegals come into our country, squat, drop a baby and the whole family are eligible to be citizens. We are a sovereign nation and have the right and obligation to protect our borders and our citizens, and Trump is trying to do that.

        1. Sunday September 7 is beat up an ACLU TRAITOR COMMIE SOCIALIST SNAKE HUMPING LIMP DICKWASTE OF LIFE.

  4. ACLU ANTICHRIST COMMUNIST LAWYERS UNITED. EVERY DAY THEY GO TO COURT TO DESTROY THE UNITED STATES. WHICH PROVES THE AXIOM WHEN THE COMMUNISTS WIN THEY WIN AND WHEN THEY LOSE THEY WIN. THEIR FOUNDER WAS A COMMUNIST. ROGER BALDWIN. WONDER IF HE IS RELATED TO ALEX. LET’S CHANT : BUILD THE WALL Y’ALL BUILD THE WALL! SPIRIT OF AMERICA PARTY RADIO SHOW ON YOU TUBE ABUTOM.

  5. Another LIBERIAL BULL SHIT ORGANIZATION – they don’t care about Americans – born & raised here whose families have been here for generations & who have built this country – they only CARE about the filth that wants to come in & go on Welfare – when my fathers family came here THERE WAS NO WELFARE – just hard work – I am going back to the late 1600’s –

  6. The ACLU can go to hell – WE don’t need any more “scroungers” in America – we already have enough. Born & raised here!

  7. ‪Expose, Boycott, Sue, prosecute and bring to justice all these lying Fake News deep state treasonous Godless NAZI commie liberal demoncrats and RINOs post-haste,Patriots! Drain the rat infested swamp President Trump!‬!

  8. Yes, what does the ACLU have to do with this anyway, except to try to obstruct the president and help to put as many things as possible under government control?
    Very frightening!

  9. ACLU it’s time to defund your organization for good you are so one sided it’s funny how you operate I’m an American Tax payer and I say defund you now and for good no more tax money for you!! P.s. We are mostly all on board with the wall you idiots we don’t want no more drug money influencing our elections I know it’s put a big dent in your pockets but such is life!!!

  10. The ACLU (anti-American Communist Liberals Union) is an organization that doesn’t belong in the US! They do nothing but fight for anything or anyone who hates or wants to destroy this country! I haven’t heard of them fighting for ANY situation on the side of America! They’re anti-Christian, too! It’s scary to think that there are such powerful groups in this country that are globalist puppets!

  11. ACLU is a non-profit, who is ‘supposed’ to be non-partisan. Seems to me they sway WAY LEFT. Wonder which rich liberal oligarch is paying their fees?

  12. ACLU has been and is now a socialist group that has been against everything America stands for for years. Their job is to get in the way of America. They
    May be a part of the Anti-American group that Soros runs. A an who was run
    Out of his own country many years ago. The cu by part is their title, American
    Civil Liberties Union. One example again, what they “say” is always the
    Complete opposite. There’s not known about who runs this phony gang, where do they get the money to operate, (Soros?) who works there, names?
    Sort of a ghost organization, a clandestine operation known only by their
    Shadowy title.

  13. How can you use God name when talking nonesense ,that don’t make you afraid ?But just to think we’re all God people ,and he has all power ,power belong to God

  14. The plan of the NWO, Satanic, sociopath, pedo, elite eugenecists is to use Radical Islam, illegal immigration, orchestrated financial collapses, poisoned food, water and medicines and cell tower radiation to depopulated America, bring it down to 3rd world status and usher in Agenda 21; a dystopic, totalitarian regime. We cannot allow this to continue. My conservative Twitter account has been shut down and many others being censored. The Satanists cannot stop us from speaking out personally. We must not be afraid to be called conspiracy theorists. I have visited the Georgia Guidestones. This is conspiracy FACT! Do not consent. Do not remain silent.

  15. These ACLU cocksuckers have shit for brains. Hey, dip shits, the border crises is a national emergency. The president can take funds from anywhere for a national emergency. He should take the funds from welfare programs. How would you like that, assholes. Stupid motherfuckers.

  16. Please NEVER call the ACLU scumbags!

    They’re too friggin stupid for you to compliment them like that.

    With any luck when they are leaving to return home MS13 will appear, then drag them into the woods and disembowel them.

    Problem solved

  17. Sunday September 7 is beat up an ACLU TRAITOR COMMIE SOCIALIST SNAKE HUMPING LIMP DICKWASTE OF LIFE.

  18. Fck the ACLU. They should be classified as a terrorist group. They stick up for ANYONE except White people, Legal U.S. citizens, Christians and heterosexuals. The whole lot of them should be burned at the stake.

  19. Yeah right….like the American COMMUNIST LibTARDS United gives a rat’s ass about the military!
    They just want to have open borders to their buddy…”666″ can make his debut!

  20. Their full of crap, most Americans want that wall and the invasion of undocumented migrants to end immediately. The d3mocrstic communist party wants these poor folks here illegally to stay in power forever with a one party system like in most communist countries.

  21. I am SICK of the ACLU! They are nothing but another arm of far left, liberal, democrats. What about MY civil liberties being violated? I DON’T want my tax dollars diverted to helping Planned Parenthood! As for the wall…the only way President Trump is going to get it built IS by diverting funds. It is a known fact that democrats are NOT going to work with Republicans to solve our border issue of 1,000s of illegals flooding into our country. I would be glad to see my tax money diverted to funding the wall OVER supporting abortions. I think it is time for all the common-sensical Americans to sue the ACLU for violating OUR civil liberties…..like….you know….making SURE we know WHO and WHY someone is entering our country AND doing it LEGALLY. This is my right to live in a safe AND secure country! This seems to be a foreign concept to the ACLU AND the democrats!!!!! SO, You go ahead and divert those funds President Trump and build that wall!

  22. The ACLU is just another Leftist group helping The Clinton Mafia, the DEMOCRATIC, The Baby MURDER Party and the rest of the CORRUPT LEFTIST PARTY CLOWNS. IF YOU DO NOT LIKE MY COMMENT, T.S..
    IF ANYONE DOES NOT KNOW WHAT THESE LETTERS MEAN, LOOK: TOUGH SHIT !!!!
