Leahy, Durbin, Schatz REAX To President Trump Robbing From The Military To Pay For His Vanity Wall

"Military construction projects are carefully scrutinized by Congress.  We work with the military services to validate and review these projects thoroughly.  It is vital that we balance their operational necessity with existing fiscal constraints.  

“The President is robbing the men and women of our armed services of funds meant for critical construction projects that are necessary to serve our troops, support our allies, deter our adversaries, and care for our military families — all to build a wall that will do nothing to solve the humanitarian crisis at our Southwest border or protect the American people.”
