The Pentagon will be funding the border wall construction using $3.6 billion in military construction funds here and overseas that had been designated for 127 projects over the next year. The projects are not necessarily cancelled or put on hold but “deferred”.
Regardless of the lingo, these projects are de-funded unless lawmakers appropriate enough in the 2020 budget to cover both the projects and the new border barrier segments. The complete list of projects effected is expected for release soon.
The $3.6 billion would add to the existing $2.5 billion already allocated for border projects this year.
