There is CLEARLY an emergency situation on the southern US border and there has been for years.
Unfortunately, no US president has been willing to fix the problem — until today.
Democrat and Republican lawmakers have failed to fund President Trump’s border wall.
But now there is hope for those Americans who want a safe and secure country.
The Pentagon announced they have $12.8 billion to help fund President Trump’s border wall.
The Washington Examiner reported:
The Defense Department has identified $12.8 billion in possible funding that it could use to fulfill President Trump’s call for a border wall.
Sen. Jack Reed, D-R.I., released the 20-page spreadsheet on Twitter Monday night.
Trump last month declared a national emergency at the border, and said he wants to use $3.6 billion for border wall projects. The Pentagon’s list said it has found possible funding sources that are “in excess of the amount needed.”
But it’s not clear which projects the Defense Department will draw from. Some states that have been allocated big chunks of money that haven’t been spent could see a hit.
California, for example, was identified as having more than $700 million in unused Army and Navy military construction that could be used. Hawaii has more than $400 million that could be used.
More than $200 million in similar funding allocated for Hawaii, Maine, New York, North Carolina, Guam, Germany, Guam, and Guantanamo Bay Cuba are also on the list.
