Acting Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan has approved an additional $1.5 billion to build 80 more miles of United States/Mexico border wall.
#BREAKING #Border @ActingSecDef Pat Shanahan confirms he is transferring $1.5 billion in Pentagon funds for the border wall, including funds Pentagon was saving for #Afghanistan. But then tells me "I won't be reprogramming any more money for the border wall."

Department of Homeland Security officials, both current and former ones like President Obama’s DHS Chief Jeh Johnson, insist there is a crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border. There were over 100,000 apprehensions in April alone, the highest monthly total since 2007.
The money will pay for “fence replacement on four additional projects in and around Tucson, AZ, and El Centro, TX, totaling 78.25 miles,” Pentagon spokesman Tom Crosson told CNN.
