Washington, D.C. – U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (FL-23) issued the following statement after the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California tonight became the second federal court in two days to issue nationwide orders blocking the Trump administration from stealing $3.6 billion in military construction funds to build a wall along the United States border.

Wasserman Schultz chairs the Military Construction and Veterans Affairs Appropriations Subcommittee, which directs these funds:

“Yet another court, the second one in the last two days, rejected this President’s attempt to steal funds from our military to pay for his border wall boondoggle. It’s not just the Courts that continue to reject this wasteful wall, bipartisan votes in Congress have also rejected this assault on our military families, global security and the constitutional separation of powers.

Canceling those military projects would hurt our servicemembers and their families, weaken our bases and troop readiness, and embolden global aggressors, especially Russia. This President needs to put our nation’s security and servicemembers over his nativist political pandering.”

TEAR DOWN THIS WALL

by Johnny Punish (Free Download)

Dogs have ears
Cats have eyes
We have our voices
So tell no lies

Beware of the rain
Beware of the snow
Beware of the man
You think you know

He wants you afraid
To barricade your doors
And hide the kids
No Somos Los Enemigos
(WE’RE NOT THE ENEMIES!)

Your world is white
It’s also black and brown
We’re all one people
7 billion! Break it down!

But you’ve got the fear
You’re angry man
I feel your hate
Don’t you understand

You’ve been abused
You’ve been locked out
A light once bright
Is now in doubt

So don’t build that wall
You can fight it back
You’re still alive
Don’t let this stand

So come back home
The future needs you now
The time is right
to disavow

and reject the fear (cult)
Say goodbye to hate (cult)
Tear down this wall
Make America Great (cult)
