A California court ruled that Donald Trump should temporarily stop building a wall with Mexico, using money from the budget. According to the court, the target use of money was not allowed by Congress, writes Reuters.

A court ruling blocks the use of a billion dollars from the defense ministry in Arizona and Texas. This is part of the 6.7 billion Pentagon-allocated funds that the Trump administration intends to send to the wall. According to the court, the actions of the government are contrary to the principles of the separation of powers between the authorities since the founding of the USA

Representatives of the Ministry of Homeland Security, the Pentagon and the White House have not yet commented on the decision of the court.

In early 2019, Trump signed a decree imposing a state of emergency, which allows him to receive money for a wall construction project with Mexico. Many in the country took it as an excess of the constitutional powers of the president, noted Deutsche Welle.
