Governor Gavin Newsom Responds to Court Blocking Trump Border Wall Funding

Sacramento, California - Governor Gavin Newsom responded Friday to the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California blocking the Trump Administration from diverting ​military funding without congressional authorization to build the President’s border wall:

“America should be building bridges - not walls,” said Governor Newsom. “California has said all along that the federal government should be focused on the real threats our state faces like wildfires and drug trafficking.” “I am glad the Court ruled to block the President from diverting this funding without congressional ​authorization.”
