Lawmakers criticize Pentagon for shifting money to Mexico Border Wall

Secretary of Defense Mark Esper was grilled by lawmakers Wednesday for his decision to divert military funding to pay for the US border wall. The lawmakers said that the move circumvented Congress’ authority and could affect the military’s ability to reprogram funds in the future. Earlier this month the Pentagon said it would be shifting $3.8 billion from the military budget to pay for the wall.
