國會批准額五倍!川普擬從國防部撥72億元築牆

川普總統今年擬額外從國防部經費撥出72億元用於邊界築牆,這是國會2020年批准川普用於築牆預算的五倍之高。圖為用國防部經費在亞利桑納州尤馬邊界建築的邊界牆。(美聯社)

根據「華盛頓郵報」(Washington Post)取得的內部計畫數據,川普總統今年擬額外從國防部經費撥出72億元用於邊界築牆,這是國會2020年批准川普用於築牆預算的五倍之高。

國防部的軍事建設計畫和反麻醉藥品經費將連續第二年遭提撥;根據該計畫,這筆經費可望在2022年春季前提供政府足夠資金,以在邊界新建好約885哩的城牆,這將遠超過政府原本規畫的509哩美墨高牆。

川普2019年已從軍事反毒計畫撥出約25億元築牆,但今年政府打算再拿更多,也就是高達35億元的經費。此外,川普政府還打算再從軍事建設經費拿出37億元,稍為高於去年提撥36億元的經費。

此舉等於川普任內一共撥出184億元的聯邦經費用於築牆,這也是川普2016年競選總統時的首要承諾;他當時還承諾要讓墨西哥支付美墨高牆的費用。

根據最新數據,川普政府目前已完成101哩新建高牆,遠低於他先前承諾要在今年底前蓋好的450哩高牆。雖然築牆面臨多項法律行動,但建牆工事也仍持續進行。

德州邊界城鎮艾爾巴索(El Paso)的聯邦法院去年12月裁決,國會授權用於其他用途的經費遭白宮挪用來築牆,此舉屬違法行動,因此法院凍結36億元築新牆的預算。

不過川普政府提出上訴,第五巡迴上訴法院上周駁回該禁令。熟悉該政府計畫的人士透露,川普與其政府則將此視為政府今年可再提取經費的進一步鼓勵。

白宮和國防部發言人13日皆未對此回應。

亞利桑納州第100哩的高牆在上周完工,國安部代理部長沃爾夫(Chad Wolf)表示,政府有信心2020年年底時,第400哩、450哩的牆將會完工或在興建中;這也是首次有政府官員談到,選舉日前邊界高牆會如總統承諾般「在興建中」。

DHS: Arizona Officials Join Acting Secretary Wolf to Mark Completion of 100 Miles of New Border Wall System, Highlight Progress Addressing Border Crisis

YUMA, Ariz. –  Today, Acting Secretary of Homeland Security Chad F. Wolf was joined by United States Senator Martha McSally, Yuma Mayor Douglas Nicholls, U.S. Border Patrol Yuma Sector Chief Patrol Agent Anthony Porvaznik, and Yuma County Sheriff Leon Wilmot to announce the Federal government has completed construction on the first 100 miles of new border wall system along the southwest border. 

“As of today, we have completed the first 100 miles of new border wall system on the southwest border. New wall has been constructed in every border state from California to Texas. This is a milestone for our entire country, and this would not have been possible without the President’s steadfast determination and leadership,” said Acting Secretary Wolf. “The new border wall system is an undeniable impediment to human smugglers, drug traffickers, and other criminals who have exploited our lack of effective border infrastructure to smuggle drugs, people and illegal contraband into our country. The President listened to his operators on the front lines and is fulfilling his promise to secure the border.”

Wolf continued: “The decision out of the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals is a huge victory.  It upholds the rule of law and our ability to use military construction funds to address the ongoing crisis at the border.”

"Arizonans live every day with the challenges and opportunities that come with being a border state,” said Senator Martha McSally. “Yuma has been an example of how a border wall system makes a difference—along with dedicated agents, intelligence driven operations, roads, and technology. These additional barriers and a new port of entry will improve security and the economy for our community, state, and country."

“The wall is a critical component in border security measures for Yuma’s border region for the safety of our community, for proficient border crossing operations, and for economic stability,” said Mayor Doug Nicholls. “An efficiently-operated, safe southern border region is pivotal to the economy as a whole, inclusive of Yuma’s $3 billion agriculture industry. We experienced a dramatic reduction in incursions when the 2006 wall was constructed, which decreased illegal crossings by 95%. Fourteen years later with changes in immigration patterns, we need to keep safety and efficiency a mainstay.”

The portion of the wall completed in the Yuma Sector is part of a high-tech system that combines a physical barrier with technology and real-time surveillance. In Fiscal Year 2019, Yuma Sector was the third busiest sector in the nation with almost 70,000 apprehensions between ports of entry. Nearly 25% of its 105 miles of land border now has new border wall. This new wall construction is combined with all-weather roads, lighting, enforcement cameras, and other related enforcement technology to help U.S. Customs and Border Protection continue to secure our southern border. 

“The commemoration of the 100th border wall mile is monumental for Yuma Sector,” said Yuma Sector Chief Patrol Agent Anthony J. Porvaznik. “Our agents do a tremendous job on the front lines enforcing law and order on the border with all available resources. Now, they are equipped with a 30-foot wall which impedes and denies attempts to enter our country illegally, assault our agents, or smuggle dangerous narcotics and contraband into the United States."

“In Arizona, border security isn’t a talking point or faraway concern; it’s an issue our residents live with every day,” said Governor Doug Ducey. “We know that barriers make a difference and aid our law enforcement along the border. We’re grateful to have an administration that has prioritized border security and listened to the needs of states.”

Supreme Court: Trump can use Pentagon funds for border wall

By JESSICA GRESKO


WASHINGTON (AP) — The Supreme Court cleared the way Friday for the Trump administration to tap billions of dollars in Pentagon funds to build sections of a border wall with Mexico.

The court’s five conservative justices gave the administration the greenlight to begin work on four contracts it has awarded using Defense Department money. Funding for the projects had been frozen by lower courts while a lawsuit over the money proceeded. The court’s four liberal justices wouldn’t have allowed construction to start.

The justices’ decision to lift the freeze on the money allows President Donald Trump to make progress on a major 2016 campaign promise heading into his race for a second term. Trump tweeted after the announcement: “Wow! Big VICTORY on the Wall. The United States Supreme Court overturns lower court injunction, allows Southern Border Wall to proceed. Big WIN for Border Security and the Rule of Law!”

The Supreme Court’s action reverses the decision of a trial court, which initially froze the funds in May, and an appeals court, which kept that freeze in place earlier this month. The freeze had prevented the government from tapping approximately $2.5 billion in Defense Department money to replace existing sections of barrier in Arizona, California and New Mexico with more robust fencing.

The case the Supreme Court ruled in began after the 35-day partial government shutdown that started in December of last year. Trump ended the shutdown in February after Congress gave him approximately $1.4 billion in border wall funding. But the amount was far less than the $5.7 billion he was seeking, and Trump then declared a national emergency to take cash from other government accounts to use to construct sections of wall.

The money Trump identified includes $3.6 billion from military construction funds, $2.5 billion in Defense Department money and $600 million from the Treasury Department’s asset forfeiture fund.

The case before the Supreme Court involved just the $2.5 billion in Defense Department funds, which the administration says will be used to construct more than 100 miles (160 kilometers) of fencing. One project would replace 46 miles (74 kilometers) of barrier in New Mexico for $789 million. Another would replace 63 miles (101 kilometers) in Arizona for $646 million. The other two projects in California and Arizona are smaller.

The other funds were not at issue in the case. The Treasury Department funds have so far survived legal challenges, and Customs and Border Protection has earmarked the money for work in Texas’ Rio Grande Valley but has not yet awarded contracts. Transfer of the $3.6 billion in military construction funds is awaiting approval from the defense secretary.

The lawsuit at the Supreme Court was brought by the American Civil Liberties Union on behalf of the Sierra Club and Southern Border Communities Coalition. The justices who lifted the freeze on the money did not give a lengthy explanation for their decision. But they said among the reasons they were doing so was that the government had made a “sufficient showing at this stage” that those bringing the lawsuit don’t have a right to challenge the decision to use the money.

Alexei Woltornist, a spokesman for the Justice Department, said in a statement, “We are pleased that the Supreme Court recognized that the lower courts should not have halted construction of walls on the southern border. We will continue to vigorously defend the Administration’s efforts to protect our Nation.”

ACLU lawyer Dror Ladin said after the court’s announcement that the fight “is not over.” The case will continue, but the Supreme Court’s decision suggests an ultimate victory for the ACLU is unlikely. Even if the ACLU were to win, fencing will have already been built.

Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan would not have allowed construction to begin. Justice Stephen Breyer said he would have allowed the government to finalize the contracts for the segments but not begin construction while the lawsuit proceeded. The administration had argued that if it wasn’t able to finalize the contracts by Sept. 30, then it would lose the ability to use the funds. The administration had asked for a decision quickly.

The Supreme Court is on break for the summer but does act on certain pressing items.

川普高牆大勝利! 最高法院裁定:可挪國防經費建邊牆

(World Journal) 編譯郭宣含/綜合26日電



聯邦最高法院26日裁定,政府可以挪用國防經費建築美墨邊境圍牆,是川普總統的一大勝利。圖為川普(左一)去年3月在視察加州美墨邊境時,在邊牆前發表談話。(TNS)

最高法院26日裁決,川普政府能開始使用25億元國防經費蓋南方邊界的高牆,象徵川普總統在法律上獲得重要的一勝。

保守派為主的最高法院以五比四票表決通過,其中四名自由派法官皆表異議。

川普隨後在推特表示:「哇!高牆大勝利。美國最高法院扭轉下級法院禁令,使南方邊界高牆能繼續興建。邊境保護與法治大獲勝。」

聯邦政府本月初要求法官暫停下級法院裁決,其阻止官員使用國防部部分經費興建墨西哥邊界高牆。

聯邦檢察總長(Solicitor General)佛朗西斯科(Noel Francisco)指出,聯邦政府的需求更勝美國公民自由聯盟(ACLU)與「賽拉俱樂部」(Sierra Club)等維權團體的需求,這些團體對國防部邊界高牆經費提出挑戰。佛朗西斯科表示,若這個財政年度結束前這些經費仍遭凍結,當局可能就完全無法動用這筆錢。

川普2月為墨西哥築牆宣布國家緊急狀態,之後兩個月國會因川普承諾的邊界高牆經費陷入僵局,甚至創下美國史上政府部分關門最久的紀錄。

國會僅撥出川普要求的部分經費後,川普宣布他會單方面再花數十億元。美國公民自由聯盟代表兩個維權團體很快對此提告,阻止川普拿軍事計畫費用建美墨高牆,打擊毒品走私。

加州屋崙地區的聯邦法官吉里安(Haywood Gilliam)5月發布修建圍牆的禁令,並支持維權團體有關高牆會對邊界造成無可挽救傷害的說法。

川普政府提出上訴後,聯邦第九巡迴上訴法院7月初維持原判,以二比一票拒絕暫停該禁令,並指出使用這筆費用違反憲法要求,行政部門不得在國會未撥款的情況下使用經費。
