The United States Supreme Court has declined to hear a legal challenge to the Trump administration’s continued construction of a wall on the country’s southern border. A number of environmental groups led by the Center for Biological Diversity had asked the Supreme Court to review a lower court ruling, which ruled the project could continue. The environmental group had sought in a lawsuit to bar continued construction of a physical barrier along the border with Mexico in the states of Arizona, California, New Mexico and Texas on the basis the wall was being constructed without congressional approval and was endangering wildlife.
