BREAKING: Pentagon Allocates $1.5 BILLION+ for US-Mexico Border Wall Construction

posted by Hannity Staff - 5.10.19

The Pentagon allocated more than $1.5 billion to construct new physical barriers along the US-Mexico border Friday; securing the funds after President Trump declared the region a “national emergency” just weeks ago.

“The Pentagon has approved a plan to spend an additional $1.5 billion to build 80 more miles of wall along the U.S.-Mexico border, a U.S. defense official confirmed to Fox News Friday,” reports Fox News.

“Acting Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan approved the re-allocation of funds, which were originally earmarked for support of Afghan security forces and other projects, to help pay for the wall along the southern border,” adds the article.

“Today, I authorized the transfer of $1.5 billion toward the construction of more than 80 miles of border barrier,” said Shanahan. “The funds were drawn from a variety of sources, including cost savings, programmatic changes, and revised requirements, and therefore will have minimal impact on force readiness.”

BETO GOES BERSERK: O’Rourke Calls for the REMOVAL of El Paso Border Wall

posted by Hannity Staff - 2.15.19

Texas Rep. Beto O’Rourke called for the removal of El Paso’s critical border wall this week; saying the physical barrier “has not in any way” made the US “safer” and costs “tens of billions of dollars.”

“Would you -if you could- take the wall down now? Here?” asked MSNBC’s Chris Hayes.

“Yes, Absolutely. I’d take the wall down,” said Beto.

“Here’s what we know… After the Secure Fence Act we built 600 miles of wall and fencing on a 2,000 mile border. What that has done has not in any way made us safer. It cost us tens of billions of dollars to build and to maintain,” he added.

ARMAGEDDON AGAIN? Pelosi Warns Government Could be ‘CLOSED FOREVER’ Over Budget Fight

posted by Hannity Staff - 12.13.18

Likely Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi escalated her war-of-words with the Trump administration Thursday; saying the government could be “closed forever” because of her opposition to the President’s border wall.

Pelosi was speaking with reporters during her weekly press conference at the Capitol when she was asked if she planned to cave to the President’s security demands.

“Let’s hope there won’t be a shutdown of the government. That’s a very bad thing to do, maybe the President doesn’t grasp that. That is very harmful to our country at significant cost,” said Pelosi.

“They still voted against opening up the government [the last time.] Does he want to have government closed forever? What’s this about? I know he doesn’t believe in government,” she added.
