President Trump May Use Military to Build Border Wall

President Trump May Use Military to Build Border Wall
Breitbart

If story is true (not something I'd count on) the wall might actually be built.

It will be paid for as part of the blanket military appropriation, so no nonsense about congress approving anything specific.

This is the Republican version of free stuff from the government, and less destructive than some stuff they do.

And of course Mexico will not be paying for it.

And with no more Mexicans coming in, I guess we'll have to compete with Europe for their supply of illegal aliens from Africa. 8)

This one is from the Atlantic
Could Trump Actually Use Military Funding for His Border Wall?
President Trump can’t seem to find the funds to fulfill his signature campaign pledge of building a border wall—and his Plan C could get even more complicated.

On the campaign trail, Trump insisted that Mexico would pay for the wall, a proposal that the Mexican government quickly shut down. Once in office, Trump looked to Congress to foot the bill, but lawmakers—many of whom are unconvinced there’s a need for additional construction—only allocated $1.6 billion for the wall in the $1.3 trillion spending package they passed earlier this month. The figure falls well short of the $25 billion that Trump asked for, and most of the funds are for repairing existing barriers, not mounting new ones.

Didn't they build the Panama Canal Wall to keep out the more southern undesirables?
