Pentagon will pull money from ballistic missile and surveillance plane programs to fund Trump's border wall
The Pentagon will shift $1.5 billion for President Trump’s border wall from programs that include a nuclear intercontinental ballistic missile system and a plane that provides surveillance and communications to fighter jets while airborne.

The $1.5 billion in reprogramming comes on top of about $1 billion in Army personnel money that the Pentagon said in March it would set aside for the border wall and $3.6 billion in military construction projects that the Defense Department intends to delay to build other sections of the wall.

The ballistic missile program is the Minuteman III, which the Air Force says requires updates to its aging ground infrastructure. A plan to upgrade its control center is “slightly delayed,” so the Pentagon is shifting some money set aside for it for the wall, the document said.

The Pentagon also intends to reprogram some money for the wall from its Airborne Warning and Control System (AWACS) program, the document said. AWACS planes fly with a large antenna array on the outside of the fuselage, transmitting messages to strike aircraft.

It just proves the point a border wall is needed so badly. As other threats flare up we need a secure border yesterday.

Hey - here's an idea - use a surveillance plane to fire a ballistic missile onto mexico's caravans.

No need for a fence/wall.

Done.
