U.S. to spend US$ 3.6 bil. to fund U.S.-Mexico border wall Updated: 2019-09-05 09:41:39 KST

The U.S. Department of Defense has announced new funding for a border wall with Mexico, using 3.6 billion U.S. dollars partly diverted from international military projects.
In South Korea, those projects include,. the ultra-secure military bunker Command Post Tango and the U.S. Air Force base at Gunsan Airport.
The plan is to build or upgrade around 2-hundred-80 kilometers of wall on the border,. which is more than 3-thousand kilometers long.
Some lawmakers have criticized the plan, but the Pentagon is not seeking new funding from Congress,.. so there's not much they can do turn things around.
