Quote: >"Schumer’s fellow New York senator, Kirsten Gillibrand, said Trump’s wall obsession is putting the country at risk.
"Diverting this defense funding eliminates mission-critical facilities, placing our national security at risk and limiting the military’s ability to compete with our country’s most powerful adversaries,” said Gillibrand, the ranking member of the Senate Armed Services Personnel Subcommittee.
The U.S. military funds, which Trump was able to tap into by declaring a national emergency in February after caving on his initial wall cash request to Congress, will bankroll the construction of roughly 175 miles of fencing, representing just a fraction of the 1,954 mile U.S.-Mexico border."
Where are the Reps/Cons to oppose this insanity? Each small section of that wall will cost $450,000. Money better spent elsewhere.
