Talking Points Memo reported:

The Interior Department is transferring about 500 acres of public land to the Pentagon in order to construct about 70 miles of President Trump’s border wall, the Wall Street Journal reported.

The land was previously monitored by the Bureau of Land Management and will now be overseen by the U.S. Army. The 560 acres total includes 213 acres in New Mexico, 301 acres in Arizona and 44 acres in San Diego, California.

The move is all part of Trump’s efforts to expedite the construction of mass portions of his border wall before the 2020 election. Earlier this month, the Trump administration took $3.6 billion from military construction project funding to devote toward the wall.
