Results for - $3.6 Billion Diverted to Fund Trump's Border Wall
2,620 voters participated in this survey
1. The Pentagon will cut funding from military projects like schools, target ranges and maintenance facilities to pay for the construction of 175 miles of fencing along the U.S.-Mexico border, diverting a total $3.6 billion to President Donald Trump's long-promised barrier. Do you agree that there needs to be a more secure border between the United States and Mexico?
2. Projects in 23 states, 19 countries and three U.S. territories would be stalled or killed by the plan, though just $1.1 billion in cuts would strike the continental U.S., according to a list released Wednesday by the Pentagon. Almost $700 million would come from projects in U.S. territories, including Puerto Rico, with another $1.8 billion coming from projects on overseas bases. Do you think the security of the United States should take priority over other projects overseas?
3. Trump's move would take the biggest step yet in delivering on his promise to build a wall to block immigrants from entering the country illegally. But it may come at the expense of projects that the Pentagon acknowledged may be difficult to fund anew. Capitol Hill Democrats, outraged over Trump's use of an emergency order for the wall, promised they won't approve money to revive them. Do you think it is wrong of the Democrats to refuse funds to revive projects that were defunded in order to secure the U.S./Mexico border?
4. In addition, new stretches of fencing proposed along the Rio Grande and through a wildlife refuge in Arizona promise to ignite legal battles that could delay the wall projects as well. Do you think that the United States should back the efforts to secure the border as much as possible - including in the courtroom?
