The Department of Defense has identified $12.8 billion that could be diverted from various projects and used to build a wall on the southern border.
“California, for example, was identified as having more than $700 million in unused Army and Navy military construction that could be used. Hawaii has more than $400 million that could be used,” according to Washington Examiner.
“More than $200 million in similar funding allocated for Hawaii, Maine, New York, North Carolina, Guam, Germany, Guam, and Guantanamo Bay Cuba are also on the list,” the report continued.
All of a sudden, leftist politicians seem concerned about military construction projects. Historically the political left has not exactly championed a strong, well-funded military. But to oppose President Donald J. Trump, the left has done crazier things than support the military.
“Trump Admin finally releases its list of at-risk #milcon projects that could be put on the chopping block in order to divert billions to pay for Trump’s ineffective #borderwall. Take a look – military bases in your state could be negatively impacted,” Sen. Jack Reed (D-R.I.) said.

Reed originally released the spreadsheet detailing the potential funding reallocations.
Trump has been engaged in a battle with Congress, which has granted him little money to fulfill his promise of building a big, beautiful, wall along the Southern border.
Her recently declared a state of emergency in order to allocate DOD funds for the wall, which is being challenged in court by several predominantly liberal states.
