I want a Border Wall.

But I am against this sort of shenanigans:

The Pentagon has formally greenlighted the transfer of up to $1 billion towards the construction of “roads and fences” as well as lighting along the US-Mexico border wall, as part of a crackdown on drug trafficking.
In a memo to Secretary of Homeland Security Kristjen Nielsen, acting defense chief Patrick Shanahan wrote that he authorized the US Army Corps of Engineers to “immediately begin planning and executing up to $1 billion” in support of the range of activities necessary to seal “11 drug-smuggling corridors.”

The money was allocated by the Congress of the United States to the Pentagon for military uses . It isn’t the Pentagons to give away for other purposes, nor is it Donnie’s choice where that money goes.

I gotta say, this comes close to bordering on unconstitutional and illegal actions.

  1. Border Defense is a normal and proper constitutional role for our military. So, whether its having troops on the border or building fences or fortifications on the border with military funds, I'd reckon its a valid military use of the funds.

    Mind you, I'm still annoyed with all the RINOs for the past couple years when Republicans controlled the House who stymied attempts to get this done, but it certainly needs to be done.

  2. Actually it's not. The military DOES have a role in border protection, and this is a viable and LEGAL use of the money, contrary to what the MSM and everyone else is yelling.
