After four or five pages of thread topics about the 'Wall", couldn't decide which one to bump, so...

 

"Pentagon halts plans to build extra 20 miles of border wall, citing insufficient funds"  CNN headline, today.

 

"The Defense Department has decided not to proceed with three border wall projects in California and Arizona, citing "insufficient contract savings," according to a court filing.

The move appears to be a setback for President Donald Trump, who has sparked controversy for dipping into Pentagon funds to build his signature border wall, though it's unclear what will happen to the projects listed in the filing.

 

Last month, Secretary of Defense Mark Esper approved an additional 20 miles of 30-foot-high barriers for the southern border using $2.5 billion in funds redirected from a counter drug account, which is authorized to spend money on border barrier construction for the purpose of blocking "drug-smuggling corridors."

 

Although then-acting Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan had earlier approved some 135 miles of fencing requested by the Department of Homeland Security in the Yuma, El Paso and Tucson sectors, the cost of constructing that section of the border wall was less than originally anticipated, freeing up funds to support the additional 20 miles approved by Esper.

 

The Pentagon notified the court of the additional miles at the time, noting the Army Corps wouldn't know the exact amount of savings to move forward with the projects until later in the fiscal year.

Monday's court filing, however, reveals that there were not enough funds to cover the costs of the projects..."

 

Walls, funding, "barriers", Mexico paying for it, yada, yada, yada...

 

The question is: 

Will this idiotic Wall ever get Built?

Will Mexico pay for it?

Will the Trump base demand his resignation because his number one campaign promise fell flat?

 

Oh, and the dueling headlines could go on much, much longer.  Almost as long a list as there are imaginary border wall miles...

Yeah for you guys!! Let’s cheer for open boarders.

Pathetic!

the borders are NOT open........

 

you guys need to stop acting like children, put your big boy pants on, and try to hammer out a comprehensive immigration agreement.

 

Mexico is NOT paying,

WE are.

so maybe instead of stealing it from the Military you guys can act like adults and run it thru Congress.

Funny both Dems and Reps have called the illegals boarder crossings a CRISIS! 

Whose responsibility is it to “hammer out a comprehensive immigration plan”? 

Immigration IS NOT, the issue. Illegal boarder crossing IS. But you knew that.

i never believed Mexico would pay for it. Ever.

I never cheered for “stealing” the money from the Military. Ever. I was ok with reallocating those monies, which turns out is legal. 

The adult part is a two way street. Why should Rs give Ds everything they want? 

You mean the illegal Daca kids, right?
