A notification from the Pentagon to the U.S. Congress says $1,000,000,000 is being transferred for the border barrier project. The notification Monday night was objected to by congressional Democrats. The report says another $1,500,000,000 is also being earmarked for the project for use at a later date. The funds in Monday's notification will be sent through Homeland Security to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. The project involves setting out enhanced border security infrastructure which is to include a physical barrier throughout the southern border region.
