WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A federal judge on Tuesday issued a permanent injunction barring President Donald Trump’s attempt to transfer $3.6 billion in military construction funds to build a wall on the souther border.

The ruling is a setback for Trump, whose administration has vowed to build at least 450 miles of wall along the border by November 2020, when the U.S. presidential election will take place. Trump has argued the wall will deter illegal border crossings, a major focus of his presidency.

A new angle, so back to the Supreme Court. Given that SCOTUS overturned a previous injunction that was similar I wonder if this will stand.
