In a previous article I reported that In a rebuff to California officials and environmentalists, the Bush administration cleared the way Wednesday for completion of a 14-mile-long border fence that will run through coastal wetlands to the Pacific Ocean near San Diego.
Homeland Security Secretary, Michael Chertoff waived environmental laws for the first time since Congress gave him that authority in May. Finishing the last 3.5 miles of fence is expected to cost about $32 million.
Of course, the eco-nuts went to court to stop it, well, the case was tossed out.
From an article in Science Daily:
A federal judge in San Diego has thrown out a legal challenge to the completion of a 14-mile secondary border fence along the Mexican border.
Environmental groups opposed the waiver of laws blocking the completion of a small portion of the fence, which was begun in 1996.
But Judge Larry A. Burns ruled the waiver was not unconstitutional, reports the San Diego Union-Tribune.
The waiver was granted in September by Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff who used his authority on national security reasons.
The Left is just not interested, in what’s best for this country.
