Environmental groups vow to fight on after Supreme Court okays Trump’s border wall

The Sierra Club and other environmental advocates are vowing to press on with their fight against President Donald Trump’s efforts to use military funds for a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border following a Supreme Court ruling allowing the project to go forward.

In an unsigned, paragraph-long decision, the Supreme Court in a 5 to 4 ruling said that Trump could use $2.5 billion in Pentagon funding for the wall in parts of California, New Mexico, and Arizona. That move stayed a prior lower court decision, that ruled in favor of the Sierra Club and other plaintiffs, barring the administration from using the funds for the wall.
