Trump Sued Over Border Wall by Conservationists

A coalition of conservation groups has filed a lawsuit against the Trump administration over the border wall along the southern border.

According to The Hill:

A coalition of conservation groups is suing the Trump administration over its signature border wall, arguing that the transfer of military funds for the wall’s construction is unconstitutional and claiming that the administration did not have the right to waive certain environmental requirements.

The Center for Biological Diversity, Defenders of Wildlife and the Animal Legal Defense Fund filed the lawsuit in federal court in D.C. on Tuesday.

This is not the first time the administration was sued over its February reallocation of $3.8 billion in Pentagon funds for use on the wall. At that time, two additional suits, one by a group of 19 states and another by the American Civil Liberties Union, the Sierra Club and the Southern Border Communities Coalition, were filed.

The Tuesday suit, in addition to arguing that the transfer of funds was illegal, also challenged a March decision by the Department of Homeland Security to waive requirements such as environmental impact statements.

The main focus of the suit is that the wall could eliminate. jaguars in the United States.

The main purpose of the wall IS to eliminate Jaguars ( the two-legged type) from getting into the United State and raping as well as killing US citizens along with a huge bunch of other illegal problem they cause. These organizations are using the Jaguars as an excuse to get at the President. They hate Trump and they are going to use any tactic at their disposal to eliminate his incorruptible approach to cleaning up all phases of rotten government. Heaven knows, how obvious it has been for so many years and how much the last administration added to it.

Now there’s something to worry about, no more Jaguars in the US, what will we do ? I thought Jaguars came from Great Britten not Mexico. I’m sure enough of them will get here to kill calves, lambs, fawns, and birds.

Under the guise of environmental concerns these same sluts made Americans slaves to Mid East Oil for over 1/2 a Century—-all the lives and treasure lost are due to these same “fatherless” lost souls posing as CONSERVATIVES—swamp rats

“Eliminate Jaguars in the United States”? WTF? Are these jaguars American citizen jaguars? Is there some impact on the American ecology?

You don’t hear this kind of S?>>?::any where else in the world but AMERICA . What is the big problems if there are no jaguars in the united states ? Please give me a good argument .

These radical, ridiculous groups need to crawl back into the holes they come out of. We have millions of illegal criminals invading the US, murdering, raping and assaulting US citizens and these insane people are worried about jaguars. News Flash: We don’t need anything else coming here to harm American families or livestock.

Very good posting and make sense on about using common sense.
Politicians are great examples, they’re the group that really needs to be in under microscope because the analyzers doesn’t seem to know the difference between human needs comparing to the animal species. At this point of our chaotic American way of life, we as
citizens of this Great Nation it seems we’ve lost our compass on how to live our lives. Glad that Pres. Trump is the only politician
who care about us Americans with his promise to build the Wall.
Democrats Socialist in Congress can’t even fund it but yet they’ll
willing to sign 3 trillion dollars next stimulus package programs
For their pork project like bailing the Democrat run states that
want their deficit to be saved. Hmmmm!?

These people are worried about the environment but they don’t care about the tons of garbage these illegals dump or the human waste left behind. Enough of this crap they shouldn’t let the same complaint be filed by a different group, complete waste of time.

A Democrat Congress waived environmental constraints on the wall a decade or more ago. This suit is “without merit.”

This case will be tossed early on as the Supreme Court, July of 2019, ruled that POTUS can use military funds to fund the wall. These same arguments were made then and nothing has changed.

Just how many Jaguars cross the border and river every, uh, CENTURY, anyway? (I’m referring to the ANIMAL, of course, not the cartel “boss-mobile” car.) And just wait ’till one of these “Conservationist” members has a dog or cat EATEN by a BIG Spotted Cat! They don’t even LIVE there, anyway. What a bunch of vacuum-heads.

Jaguars are the fastest of the “cat” family, and most ferocious. What in heck is wrong with groups protecting them? Those jaguars make their home in jungle and grassland where they can find prey by chasing them to death. Do we really need them in the US? Then let those idiots suing against the border wall go to Mexico and adopt a jaguar and lead them home on a leash. I guarantee that none of the handlers will survive, and we’ll be ready with our big game guns to hunt those critters down. All animals have their place in the world, but those are not native to this country. It’s bad enough that here in Texas we have to beware of feral hogs…but those are allowed to be killed, and fortunately, make good eating. Cats? Not so much. I’ve never heard anything so ridiculous, but then I considered the source….the touchy-feely leftists who figure if we build the wall, their precious illegals won’t be able to get here to become subservient to the leftist who use them for their own purposes. And then some!

Yet these same “conservationists” ignore the environmental damage that will take a century or more to repair done by hordes of Illegal Invaders trampling and laying waste to sensitive desert ecologies.
Hypocrisy, thy name is “Environmentalist”.
Their “environmentalism” is just a smoke screen for their opposition to the Trump Administration.

Eliminate Jaguars? Brain Dead Socialists who have to have a cause, SLAY ME!
The WALL is necessary; Just as necessary as locking up The Coup Plotters! Our Republic is under attack from without and within. WE have terrorists and thieves, rapists and child molestors breaking into our Republic, (breaking our laws to come here) and WE have a ‘domestic enemy’ within Our Federal and State Governments who believe that they are cunning and deceptive and capable of upsetting our Constitutional Republic. They want our guns because they want us to be defenseless and they wish to enslave us in their Socialist Utopia, with sub-cutaneous implants in our bodies to track our movements and when WE defecate! These People are the very example of TYRANNY. They spend our tax dollars eavesdropping on our telephone calls, collecting them all up, watching and recording our browsing habits. Don’t you know that WE kicked The King Of England’s Ass for far less? The time has come and the men of foreign wars and police actions, who’s children and grand children deserve better, will not allow this National Travesty to continue, and a good American like Donald J. Trump be attacked and disrespected any longer. The Democratic National Party is That Domestic Enemy which Our Constitutional Oath advises us to defend against. They talk like us, look like us, but they serve an overlord who wishes to destroy us. This cannot be allowed to continue one moment longer! Americans with a keen sense of duty and honor will now confront and dispatch the demons which we have labelled DOMESTIC ENEMIES!

These so called Conservatives are just back stabbing Judas’s kin. By not protecting America from INVASION They are in league with the same Communists that are responsible (CHINA) for the destruction of the economy of the United States and the rest of the World—-what evil (insert bad word of Your choice) They are.
