REPORT: Pentagon asks DHS to justify moving funds for Trump’s border wall

TheHill.com:

The Pentagon signaled Thursday that it has asked the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) for a priorities list to justify using military funds to build President Trump’s desired border wall.

“We’ve asked DHS for input facts, data, priorities; we are waiting to receive those,” Acting Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan told reporters at the Pentagon.

The article goes on to state the following:

“When we do, we will then … match that with our mission analysis and begin the process I think I’ve described to many of you.”

The Military Times first reported Thursday that the Pentagon asked DHS for such a list in a Feb. 18 memo. The document asks for locations where border wall construction would improve the “effectiveness” of military troops deployed there.
