Oh, good. Another Obama judge blocking President Trump from doing things to benefit all Americans. Haywood Gilliam just found himself in a big mess, but it’s all his doing. From Washington Examiner:
A federal judge who partially blocked President Trump’s plans to build a border wall along the United States-Mexico border previously donated almost $30,000 to former President Obama, other Democrats, and a political action committee.
U.S. District Court Judge Haywood Gilliam, an Obama appointee confirmed in 2014, donated $6,900 to Barack Obama’s debut campaign for president and $14,500 to his reelection campaign, according to federal election records. The same records also indicate he contributed $4,500 to the Democratic National Committee in 2012 and, between 2012 and 2015, sent $3,100 to the Covington Burling LLP PAC, which supports candidates from both parties. His contributions totaled $29,000.
Gilliam made the donations, first reported by the Epoch Times, prior to serving as a U.S. District judge. He had said during his confirmation hearing that he “would base my decisions solely on the facts of each case and the applicable precedent, without regard to any political ideology or motivation,” and that “any personal views would not interfere in any way with my ability to neutrally apply the law.”
Patrick Shanahan will most likely become the next Secretary of Defense after he was recently nominated to the post by President Trump.
Shanahan is currently the acting SecDef, having filled the shoes of James “Mad Dog” Mattis.
Shanahan made clear that hundreds of miles of wall have been contracted to be built on America’s southern border with Mexico.
Democrat hearts are breaking across the country.
So @ActingSecDef just told Congress that 256 new miles of Trump’s Wall is now funded to be built, at the rate of half a mile every day. He said that we will see about “63 additional new miles of wall” constructed six months from now. #thewall
Every day, another 1/2 mile of the Wall is built to protect our communities from gang members, deadly drugs, dangerous criminals and evil human traffickers. It is getting done! #SecureTheBorder pic.twitter.com/cZKHGDmSkH

President Trump will now and forever be linked to the wall.
It was his biggest promise to voters in 2016 and he is not content with the current influx of illegal immigration – nor should he be.
45 is now saying that hundreds of miles of wall will be completed by the end of next year.
Congress must change the Immigration Laws now, Dems won’t act. Wall is being built – 400 miles by end of next year. Mexico must stop the march to Border! @foxandfriends
That’s a lot of wall.
Will it happen? Time will tell.
Of course, Trump has to focus on re-election. If he were to lose, bye-bye wall – forever.
POTUS is done playing games.
He knows, as does everybody, that America is a nation of immigrants. That’s a given.
But when too many people abuse the system, something has to change. Things cannot continue to go down the same track when it comes to immigration, legal or illegal.
At some point, enough is enough.
Allow POTUS to elaborate:
TRUMP: “This is our new statement- the system is full. We can’t take you anymore. Whether it’s asylum or anything you want – illegal immigration – we can’t take you anymore. Our country is full. Our area is full. The sector is full. Can’t take you anymore, I’m sorry. Turn around”
