The Trump administration’s attempt to divert funding from other military projects to build the border wall jeopardizes over 120 important military projects and endangers overall U.S. readiness. This bill would reverse that decision, return funding to important military priorities, and ensure that such a situation won’t happen in current or future administrations.
The Trump administration was within its rights to move military funds around to fund the border wall, and Congress should respect the authority it gave the executive branch to set national security priorities. While it’s important to spend on other military projects, the border wall is an urgent priority, so it’s justifiable to pull funds from other military spending to fund its construction.
