Federal court declares border wall emergency unlawful

A judge of the US District Court for the Western District of Texas declared President Trump's proclamation of a national emergency on the border with Mexico is unlawful, thus blocking his plan to divert funding for the construction of the proposed border wall from various government agencies, including the Department of Defense, while claiming that other countries will reimburse the costs.

Both US Senate and the House voted to block the national emergency declaration in an effort to stop the president from following through with his intention to build the wall along the southern US border.
