President Trump is ot using old money appropriated from Obama era projects to build the wall.
In Texas, a wide stretch of wall is under construction near Rio Grande, and the money came from Congress.
How is this possible?
Well, there is blanket money in the budgets.
Trump simply moved $145,000,000 from an ICE funding omnibus bill to fund this section of the wall.
So if Congress only gives him a check for $1.4 billion, he’ll likely find other places to get the funding for the wall.
Ted Cruz and other Republicans are suggesting taking El Chapo’s money that was seized by the FBI to fund the wall. In a way, Mexico would be paying for the wall if that happened.
