Trump revives ICE raid threat, blasts judge who ruled against border wall

President Trump vowed Saturday to “immediately” appeal a judge’s ruling blocking funding for his border wall, while reviving threats to proceed with stalled deportation raids as soon as a week from now.

The president discussed his immigration plans as part of a wide-ranging press conference following the G-20 summit in Osaka, Japan.

His administration, just after notching a win with the passage of a $4.6 billion bill to address the humanitarian crisis along the U.S.-Mexico border, was dealt a blow Friday when a California judge barred Trump from tapping $2.5 billion in military funding to build high-priority segments of the border wall in California, Arizona and New Mexico. Judge Haywood S. Gilliam, Jr. in Oakland acted in two lawsuits filed by California and by activists who contended the money transfer was unlawful and construction would pose environmental threats.

“We’re immediately appealing it and we think we’ll win the appeal,” Trump said at his press conference, calling the decision a disgrace. "There was no reason that that should have happened.”

It’s a lower court, so ignore the rule and force the left to appeal to the supreme court. There is no law stating you have to follow an unconstitutional order.

Trump is being a coward, stop threatening and start doing. Fucking clown world where enforcing the law is something the president thinks he needs to be cautious about doing because big corporate media liars. Fuck them, nothing they say is going to sway anyone. Americans have picked their sides at this point. You are either pro-America or pro-globalism. There isn’t a centrist position and only fools think there is.

We also shouldn’t let illegals use their anchor babies as human shields. They broke the law, cost taxpayers millions, and should be the first to go. Deport their asses. All of them.
