Full steam ahead!
Fire up those dirt movers boys and keep them running all day and night because we are still in business!
The wall is going to be built, and not even a Supreme Court with a compromised John Roberts is stopping it this time!
Check out this amazing news:
Fox News had these additional details:
The Supreme Court by a 5-4 vote has denied a request to halt construction of President Trump’s border wall over environmental concerns.
A number of groups, including the ACLU and Sierra Club, had asked the high court to get involved again after the justices last year cleared the way for the administration to use military funds for construction while the case played out in the courts.
A federal appeals court had ruled against the administration last month, but the justices, for now, have given another temporary victory to the administration.
"The fight continues,” said Dror Ladin, a staff attorney with the ACLU’s National Security Project. “Every lower court to consider the question has ruled President Trump's border wall illegal, and the Supreme Court’s temporary order does not decide the case. We’ll be back before the Supreme Court soon to put a stop to Trump’s xenophobic border wall once and for all.”
The four liberal justices dissented from Friday’s order.
In June, the Supreme Court also declined to hear an appeal from a coalition of environmental groups that pushed back against the Trump administration's construction of the wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.
The groups, led by the Center for Biological Diversity, challenged a 1996 law giving the president authority to fight illegal immigration and border crossings, and limiting some legal challenges.

The coalition claimed that the Trump administration did not conduct sufficient environmental impact studies for the construction and that endangered species like the jaguar and Mexican wolf would be adversely affected by the barrier.
Look how far-left NBC spun the story when they reported it:
And same with CNN:
And check out this slanted article from CNN:
A divided Supreme Court on Friday allowed continued construction of a portion of President Donald Trump's border wall while legal challenges play out.
The 5-4 order represents a loss for environmental groups represented by the American Civil Liberties Union, which had asked the justices to lift an order from a year ago that allowed the government to continue building the wall pending appeals. It is a win for Trump, who has made the construction of the wall a cornerstone of his presidency.
The portions of the wall in question are in Arizona, New Mexico and California.
Justice Stephen Breyer, joined by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Elena Kagan and Sonia Sotomayor dissented. Breyer noted that by the time the court reaches the case on the merits, the portion of the wall may already be complete.
"The Court's decision to let construction continue nevertheless, I fear, may operate in effect, as a final judgment," Breyer wrote.
The dispute concerns the ACLU's challenge to the use of $2.5 billion from the Pentagon to construct parts of the wall along the southwestern border. Last month, a federal appeals court ruled against Trump, arguing that the administration doesn't have the authority to divert Pentagon funds to build additional barriers on the US-Mexico border without congressional authorization. But the opinion had no immediate effect because of the Supreme Court's order from last year that is still in place.
"The fight continues," said Dror Ladin, staff attorney with the ACLU's National Security Project, in a statement following the Supreme Court's order.
Ladin pointed to lower court rulings against the wall and asserted that the high court's order Friday was temporary and not the final say on the case.
"We'll be back before the Supreme Court soon to put a stop to Trump's xenophobic border wall once and for all," he continued. "The administration has admitted that the wall can be taken down if we ultimately prevail, and we will hold them to their word and seek the removal of every mile of unlawful wall built."
