The US Supreme Court Allowed The Construction Of The Wall On The Border With Mexico To Continue

The US Supreme Court on Friday allowed the construction of the wall on the Mexican border to continue, according to CNN.

According to him, human rights activists called on judges to reverse last year's decision that allowed the US government to continue building the wall. As a result of the vote, five judges were in favor of allowing the construction, while four were against.

Last month, as the TV channel notes, a federal appeals court ruled against Trump, arguing that the administration does not have the authority to divert Pentagon funds to create additional barriers on the US-Mexico border without congressional authorization.

In July 2019, the US Supreme Court allowed the Washington administration to use $2.5 billion of congressional funds for the Department of defense to build a wall on the us-Mexico border.

In December 2019, the Pentagon reported that a new section of fence will be erected on the border with Mexico in Arizona by the end of 2020, for $400 million. The US authorities also plan to build additional sections of the 724 km long wall by the end of 2020. The length of the us-Mexico border reaches 3.14 thousand km.
