NEW: President Trump Briefed On Plan To Build Wall With Army Corps Infrastructure Funding

Published

on

President Donald Trump may use the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), and a portion of their $13.9 billion funding to build a wall on the Southern Border, according to three U.S. officials familiar with the plan’s details, who leaked to NBC News on Thursday.

The USACE is a federal agency made up of around37,000 civilian and military personnel. They are tasked with designing and building public works projects around the world, making them one of the largest public engineering, design, and construction management agencies.

In the case of declaring a national emergency, it is the USACE who would be tasked with building the wall, something they can fund with money already set aside for projects across the country and around the world.

The $13.9 billion is allocated to the agency through 2020, but much of the money has not yet been spent. In the case of a national emergency, that money can be diverted to fund a wall to fight back against the crisis on the border.

Among the funding Trump could dip into, according to the officials familiar, is $2.4 billion allocated to projects in California and $2.5 billion set aside for reconstruction projects in Puerto Rico.

Using funding for projects in California would make sense, considering that California is the preeminent state encouraging illegal immigration.

If the USACE build the wall, it is expected to take 18 months to complete the 315 mile plan. The initial focus would be on the most heavily trafficked areas of the border, focusing on specific areas in Texas, California, and Arizona, known for the flood of illegal immigrants and drugs.

But if Trump pushes this plan forward, Democrats are expected to fight back, by blocking the re-allocation of the funds, according to a Capitol Hill source speaking to NBC News.

Democrats will almost certainly jump to ridiculous claims of President Trump putting people’s lives at risk, while ignoring the major risk that we live under with an insecure border.

Arizona Border Patrol Officer Stabbed Multiple Times, Shoots and Kills Criminal Alien

Invasion.

A Border Patrol officer patrolling the US-Mexico border shot and killed a man who stabbed him multiple times in Southern Arizona on Monday night.

CBP officials reported that the unnamed agent was patrolling near the transnational city of Nogales, Arizona, when he encountered a group of individuals he suspected to be aliens entering the country illegally. One man accompanying them group attacked the agent when he sought to apprehend the aliens, stabbing him multiple times.

The CBP agent went on to fatally shoot the alien, who may have been a smuggler moving a group of illegal migrants across the border. Deputies of the Santa Cruz Sheriff’s Office were called to provide backup, and the Border Patrol agent that was stabbed had to be airlifted to a Tucson hospital early on Tuesday morning. Fortunately, he was released from the hospital later the same day.

Cartel-affiliated criminal smugglers have increasingly sought to infiltrate the United States in Arizona, hoping to avoid a buffed border patrol presence in Texas and new wall construction in the most trafficked areas of the border.

Preliminary reports indicate that the Border Patrol agent may have been alone when he encountered the smuggler’s group of criminal aliens, a hazard that has resulted in violent attacks on Border Patrol agents by cartel-affiliated criminals before.

The FBI is reportedly investigating the incident. It’s unclear if the group of aliens encountered by the agent have been expelled under special coronavirus immigration regulations, transferred into the custody of immigration detention, or simply allowed to proceed into the country.
