U.S. district court partially blocks border wall construction

By Caroline Linton

/ CBS News

A federal district judge on Friday issued a preliminary injunction against construction on the proposed wall along the U.S.-Mexico border in parts of Arizona and Texas. Oakland, California-based U.S. District Court Judge Haywood Gilliam ruled the Trump administrion could not move $1 billion that was previously appropriated for other areas within the Defense Department to fund the border wall.

The ruling specifically said it is taking issue with the political arguments with the border wall, and thus does not prevent the Trump administration from moving the $1 billion from elsewhere.

This is a breaking story. It will be updated.
