HeadlineOct 12, 2020

A federal appeals court ruled Friday President Trump’s use of emergency powers in 2019 to divert billions of dollars from military construction funds to build the U.S.-Mexico border wall is illegal. We’ll have more on Trump’s border wall later in the broadcast as we head to Arizona to speak with O’odham water and land defender Nellie Jo David on Indigenous Peoples’ Day, which scores of cities and states are observing today after rejecting the celebration of Columbus Day.
