(CNN) – The Trump Administration’s plan to build a border wall just took a hit.
Tuesday a federal judge in Texas blocked the use of military construction funds for the project.
In September — Defense Secretary Mark Esper authorized diverting $3.6 billion to finance 11 wall projects on the southern border.
The Pentagon funds were in addition to the $1.3 billion allotted to the project by Congress.
President Trump declared a national emergency to access the extra cash.
That prompted a lawsuit claiming Trump overstepped his authority.
Tuesday’s ruling does not apply to counter-drug and treasury forfeiture funding that has been designated for constructing the wall.
