$20M in border wall funding being diverted from money allocated for Fort Bliss projects

Military projects gutted to fund wall

WASHINGTON, DC - The U.S. Department of Defense is diverting an estimated $3.6 billion in military construction funds to help build President Donald Trump's wall on the U.S.-Mexico border, some of it from Texas and New Mexico.

The Pentagon has now released the full list of 127 military construction projects that will lose funds in order to help construct 175 miles of southern border wall.

The projects range from building training and ammunition storage facilities to fixing access roads at Fort Bliss here in El Paso, to construction on a middle school in Fort Campbell, Kentucky, along with a subway station entrance facility at the Pentagon.

Just under $1.8 billion meant for U.S. and U.S. territory projects will be reallocated to the border wall. The U.S. is also pulling funds from several overseas projects, more than $1.8 billion, including from construction at air bases in allied nations like the United Kingdom and Germany.

Asked about potential concerns from European allies, Defense Secretary Mark Esper told reporters that his message is one of increasing "burden sharing" among allies when it comes to military spending, and that other countries should "maybe pick up that tab."

Below is the full list of military construction projects.
