Enviros ask Supreme Court to stop Trump's border wall construction in light of lower court rulings

The Sierra Club and other petitioners asked the justices to lift their order from last July that allowed President Trump to begin spending $2.5 billion in reallocated defense funds to build the border wall while legal challenges proceeded through the courts.
