Biden Returning Over $2B to Pentagon That Was Redirected to Build Border Wall

Source: Newsweek

About $2 billion in funding for former President Donald Trump's border wall will be returned to the Pentagon, the Biden administration announced Friday, according to the Associated Press.

"Building a massive wall that spans the entire southern border and costs American taxpayers billions of dollars is not a serious policy solution or responsible use of federal funds," the Office of Management and Budget said in a statement.

The new plan does not cancel the project and likely will face opposition in Congress from Republicans eager to promote a plan similar to Trump's.

President Joe Biden suspended construction of the wall upon taking office while his administration reviewed the project. That angered Republicans in Congress eager to see it go forward amid an increase in apprehensions of migrants along the southwest border.

3. The money originally came out of the Pentagon construction budget

Because what's more important: upgrades to family housing, new barracks and new buildings to work out of...or a wall the Mexicans are currently using for climbing contests?
