The Pentagon has authorized a payment of $1 billion to begin building a portion of President Trump’s proposed southern border wall, according to US officials.
The Department of Defense is shifting $1 billion from a military personnel account to build a 57-mile fence at the southern U.S. border, saying the funds were freed up after some service branches fell short of their recruiting goals.

WASHINGTON, March 25 (Reuters) – The U.S. Department of Defense shifted $1 billion to plan and build a 57-mile section of “pedestrian fencing”, roads and lighting along the border between the United States and Mexico, the Pentagon chief said on Monday.
Last week, the Pentagon gave Congress a list that included $12.8 billion of construction projects for which it said funds could be redirected for construction along the U.S.-Mexico border.

We are in a fight for the survival of America as we now know it. The House failed to override President Trump’s veto leaving in place the “national emergency” he declared last month to build the border wall.
Can it get any worse for you progressive usefuls over a one week period? When was the last time the loony left won anything? I can’t remember either.
.@realDonaldTrump has been fighting to secure our southern border since his FIRST day in office. Dems refuse to put the security of Americans before illegal immigrants, but our President will keep his promise to #FinishTheWall. https://t.co/g3qFex0fed
