Abstract SAN DIEGO— The Center for Biological Diversity today expanded its lawsuit against border wall and prototype projects in San Diego, challenging the Trump administration’s authority to waive environmental laws and calling for an end to the unconstitutional maneuver.

The new filing, in U.S. District Court, asserts former Department of Homeland Security chief John Kelly did not have authority to waive dozens of laws to rush construction of the border wall and prototypes. It amends the Center’s ongoing lawsuit against the border-wall replacement and prototype projects.
