9. Roberts is not going to buy into his "emergency"

 

I'm no fan of Roberts but I can see he's got enough intelligence to know better than to just go along with everything Trump wants to do.

The right-wing (Coulter and Limbaugh are not the real thing) and the US oligarchs don't give a shit about Trump's wall. Not only does it not do anything for them, it makes it more difficult for them to employ low-wage workers for their corporate farms, chicken processing plants, seafood processing plants, etc.

Trump is not really the person in power. The oligarchs behind him are. Roberts is there for the establishment GOP, not the Trump GOP. Trump is no more a part of that than he is a part of the Palm Beach crowd even though he has property there.

The wall makes no logical, nor financial sense. It doesn't further the goals of the NRA, the Chamber of Commerce, ALEC, etc.

The lower courts will rule against Trump and SCOTUS, if it chooses to take a case, will also.
