(Trump Planning To Take $7.2 Billion More From Pentagon For Border Wall: Why? To stop asylum-seekers from escaping lives of crushing poverty and mortal danger; cage, block, and separate families of "the stranger" that as Christians we are to welcome; and inject hate and fear against immigrants, the perfect segue into an autocracy. Freaking, tragic madness and so very, very wrong. It is not a secure border he wants but a suppression of Brown.)

President Donald Trump is planning to divert an additional $7.2 billion from the Department of Defense in order to fund his wall along the southern border with Mexico, The Washington Post reported Monday.

The Post obtained internal figures showing the White House plans. If they go forward, it would be the second time the president has ordered that funds allocated to the Pentagon by Congress be diverted for wall construction, effectively bypassing lawmakers in an attempt to unilaterally deliver on a campaign promise. Trump has vowed to build 450 miles of new wall by the end of 2020 in hopes of galvanizing his political base before the next election.

The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Trump declared a national emergency last February in order to build his much-touted border wall, saying the White House planned to divert $3.6 billion in funds from Pentagon construction projects to help pay for it. The proposal drew widespread fury from Congress and a spate of lawsuits. The Supreme Court, however, said in July that Trump had the authority to use the money for the wall, and subsequent challenges have been knocked back by the courts.

Earlier this month, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit lifted an injunction from a lower court and said the diversion of Pentagon funds could go forward. The Pentagon said in September the initial funding diversion would delay or suspend 127 military construction projects both in the U.S. and overseas.

“This is a victory for the rule of law,” Stephanie Grisham, the White House press secretary, said in a statement at the time. “We are committed to keeping our borders secure, and we will finish the wall.”

Lol...

How will the wall stop asylum seekers?

Are you actually saying you'd rather build military bases overseas then protect your own borders?

By your reasoning, the whole world of poverty-ridden and suppressed people should be granted asylum in the US. Of the approximately seven billion people in the world, one guesses that perhaps 30% or more are poverty- stricken, especially in Africa, India and China. This amounts to 2.1 billion souls at the least, somewhat more than our entire population of about 350 million people. Do you really want to go down that route? Are you mad?

The Walls are part of defense system of the United States. Preventing terrorists and drug dealers from Mexico to enter. The first duty of the president is to protecting the American people and the constitution as sworn on his oath of office.

No one can dictate the Executive policies and privileges of the president.
Congress has been encroaching to the president's executive power, in almost every way. Congress must cease that illegal greed of power.

The Department of Defense? Hmmm! Lemme see, last I heard, a wall along a country's border is in fact one method of defense against unwanted intrusions, invasions, and such. Securing and guarding our border is a national security operation. Considering the immediacy of the need for border security, I see no reason why the Department of Defense can't pony up a few bucks.

Catch up CD, it is not just the Wall but the whole policy of Trump to erase the color Brown from our country. Okay, an exaggeration, but not by much.

The fact that is an illegal appropriation of Congressional appointed funds I know does not bother you. Nothing illegal or tawdry that the president does bothers you. What the hell is wrong with many Americans today?

Yep. Out of valid arguments so it is time to play the race card.
