Pentagon Reallocates More Funds for Trump’s Border Wall, Bringing Total Bill to $2.5 Billion

Do you support diverting funds for border security?

by Axios | 5.10.19

The Pentagon announced another reallocation of funds on Friday to help build President Trump's border wall, which brings the current total to $2.5 billion, the AP reports.

What's happening: The Pentagon will reallocate $1.5 billion to help fund 80 miles of the planned U.S.-Mexico border wall. These funds are being allocated in response to Trump's national emergency declaration in February. In that announcement, he said he wanted about $3.6 billion from the Defense Department's military construction fund. Last month, the DOD awarded $976 million in contracts to two companies for border wall construction.
