WASHINGTON (AP) — Senate Democrats are moving on two fronts to block President Donald Trump from using special emergency powers to transfer money from military base construction projects like new schools to pay for new fences along the U.S.-Mexico border.

If this administration wants to build a wall, they should be pushing for wall funds to be included in the budget, not stealing emergency funds for a non-emergency. Regardless of whether you think the wall is a good idea, this sets an awful precedent.

Not only are they trying to build new schools but they are building sea walls to protect our Pacific bases from rising sea levels.

Democrats should just let him have it, then produce a fake emergency next time around and watch republicans cry.

Trump already tried to get congress to fund it but the Democrats as usual blocked it. If Defense funds aren't also for defending and securing our own border then what are they for?

What’s the point, there’s no way can he build a 2,000 miles wall in 4 years. It’s mathematically impossible. Give it up ��

That's a good question. All of our defense funds should be available to secure and protect the border as far as I'm concerned.
