Pentagon approves military construction cash for border wall

Added On September 5, 2019

Earlier this year, President Donald Trump declared a national emergency in a bid to fund his promised wall at the U.S.-Mexico border.
The emergency declaration allows the Trump administration to use money from the military construction budget.
On Tuesday, Pentagon officials said 127 projects would be affected and the first 1.8 billion U.S. dollars would come from deferred military construction projects outside the United States. The second tranche would come from deferred military projects inside the United States.
