(NewsReady.com) – When President Donald Trump announced he was building a border wall, environmentalists objected. The groups claimed he was going to destroy the local ecosystem and cause irreparable damage. A coalition of groups sued to stop the project from moving forward and this week, they lost the battle.
On June 29, the Supreme Court declined to hear the case led by the Center for Biological Diversity. The organization was challenging a 1996 law that gives the president the authority to do what needs to be done to fight illegal immigration. Lawyers for the group argued President Trump didn’t study the environmental impact the wall would have on endangered species. The DC Circuit Court of Appeals dismissed the lawsuit and now that ruling will stand.
Scotus also turns away legal attack on Trump’s border wall, refusing to question law that let his administration waive more than 40 federal statutes to start construction.

The decision is one more hurdle cleared by the administration. That means the president can continue to move forward and continue to protect the country.
