"The Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals just reversed a lower court decision & gave us the go ahead to build one of the largest sections of the desperately needed Southern Border Wall, Four Billion Dollars", Trump tweeted.

The White House was then sued by the Texas border city of El Paso and the Border Network for Human Rights, an advocacy group, that argued there was no "emergency" requiring defence funds to be used.

The administration Friday marked the 100th mile of wall construction along the southern border, describing it as a "milestone achievement".

In recent weeks, circuit courts lifted three of the four nationwide injunctions against the public charge rule, leaving only the order by a judge in NY. Judges appointed by Trump and President Ronald Raegan ruled in favor of the decision, a judge appointed by President Barack Obama opposed it, according to the Wall Street Journal. "We are confident that an objective judiciary will see that this rule lies squarely within existing law".

Three years into his presidency, President Donald Trump has faced a host of legal challenges over his border wall and his attempt to shore up the effort with additional funds from other government accounts.

A lower court had temporarily blocked the use of the Department of Defense funds for the construction of the wall that Trump pledged to build during his campaign for the White House. We know that the lower courts are full of judicial activism.

Trump's efforts to build a wall along the southwest U.S. border with Mexico to stem illegal immigration have been met with numerous court challenges. "All the spending the administration sought to do when Trump announced the emergency past year it can now do" while the court challenges continue.

Mr Trump announced his intention to use Pentagon funds for his border wall last February, after a 35-day government shutdown triggered by his demand that congressional Democrats approve funding for the barrier.

Judd, appearing on "Fox & Friends", said the administration has developed a system that allows authorities to have better control of the border, preventing illegal crossings.

"The stay has been lifted but we still won the underlying case on the merits", Gerson said Thursday in a telephone interview. "That's hard to say".
