Judge halts private border wall through Butterfly Center

A state judge in Texas temporarily blocked construction of a private stretch of border wall on the U.S.-Mexico border, citing the project’s potential for “imminent and irreparable harm” to a border butterfly sanctuary.

State District Judge Keno Vasquez of Hidalgo County issued a temporary restraining order Tuesday, ordering We Build the Wall to stop any construction on lands owned by the National Butterfly Center along the border.

We Build the Wall, the defendant in the case, is a private group that last month began construction of segments of a border wall in Texas in a show of support for Trump‘s signature push to build a barrier along the U.S.-Mexico border.

The National Butterfly Center, who were the plaintiffs in the case, own the land where We Build the Wall proposed its construction.
