So, what's the over/under on when a Hawaiian judge rules the SCOTUS ruling is unconstitutional?

Doesn't sound like this is exactly settled yet.

To be clear, this is not a final judgment for the administration, nor does it represent a ruling that the administration’s diversion of funds was lawful. It merely casts substantial doubt on whether the plaintiffs are the right parties to seek to protect Congressional authority. The stay remains in effect while the Ninth Circuit decides the case and until ultimate disposition in the Supreme Court.

The Supreme Court may ultimately decide this case on the merits (and I’m less convinced on the merits, frankly), but for now it’s right to cast doubt on a sweeping lower-court injunction granted on behalf of plaintiffs who haven’t yet been able to adequately articulate the legally recognized harms they’ve suffered in what is ultimately a battle between Congress and the president of the United States.
I see no reason to give more power to the state when it can reside with the individual.

“As states are a collection of individual men, which ought we to respect most: the rights of the people composing them, or the artificial beings resulting from the composition?” asked Alexander Hamilton. “Nothing could be more preposterous or absurd than to sacrifice the former to the latter.”

If the Ds win back the Presidency, House, & Senate they'll find more than enough money to build a wall........................ to keep people in.
