SCOTUS allows wall construction to continue

United States Supreme Court (SCOTUS) refused to halt the building of the wall along the country's southern border over environmental issues.

After a 5-4 vote, claims made by the American Civil Liberties Union and other groups, that construction shouldn't go on until its legality is proven, were rejected allowing the US administration the legal access to $2.5 billion in reallocated Pentagon funds to continue building the Mexico border wall.

US President Donald Trump has praised the day before the role that the wall has played in both curbing the number of illegal crossings into the country and in keeping the coronavirus pandemic in the US under control.
