An illegal border crossing attempt between Mexico and the U.S.

WASHINGTON, D.C. – President Joe Biden is returning billions in funds to the military that Trump took for the border wall, thereby halting those projects.

Today, the Department of Defense released the following statement on the cancellation of all border barrier construction projects paid for with funds originally intended for military missions and projects.

“Consistent with the President’s proclamation, the Department of Defense is proceeding with canceling all border barrier construction projects paid for with funds originally intended for other military missions and functions such as schools for military children, overseas military construction projects in partner nations, and the National Guard and Reserve equipment account,” said Jamal Brown, Deputy Pentagon Spokesman. “DOD has begun taking all necessary actions to cancel border barrier projects and to coordinate with interagency partners. Today’s action reflects this Administration’s continued commitment to defending our nation and supporting our service members and their families.”

With this cancellation, unobligated military construction funds that had been diverted from military construction projects will be used for previously deferred military construction projects, allowing some of these critical efforts to move forward as soon as possible. The Department is reviewing the deferred project list to determine funding prioritization.

The Department will continue to work with its interagency partners regarding any additional steps that should be taken at construction sites affected by project cancellation.

    I’ve come to the conclusion that the Democratic Party is just a bunch of old people with the mentality of a middle schooler. Seems like they have to make everyone’s life miserable just because they hate one person.

    Anything to let illegals in. Are they being vaccinated and held for the second shot? No. If this pandemic is real why does joe let it flow in from the south and not shut down air travel to and from India? Joe’s border policy is dangerous. If you think I’m being a racist murica guy… try walking into Canada and see how they deal with you.

    At least he is returning it to the military, the guy who was president before him would have pocketed himself.

    Now the military will have the extra money needed to fight the crisis at the border because there isn’t a secure wall there…..
