9th Circuit Hearing on Border Wall, National Security

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – They want the border wall stopped, and they want it stopped now.

The State of California and several environmental groups are suing the Trump administration.

They claim the president has no authority to bypass environmental laws and build those walls.

This is the latest effort to stop the wall, and stop the president from moving forward.

This same argument has already been shot down by one Federal judge here in San Diego.

Now it’s been appealed to the 9th Circuit, and will likely end up in the Supreme Court.

Does the president have authority to bypass environmental laws in the name of national security?

KUSI’s Dan Plante joined us earlier with the latest.
