Democrats say military projects are at risk as they prepare to defy Trump on wall

House Democrats plan to vote Tuesday on a measure to block President Donald Trump’s border wall emergency order — and they’ll be armed with some powerful ammunition, a list of military projects from coast to coast that they say could be casualties of the White House’s decision.

The full list circulated by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s office includes about $16 billion in military construction spending, including $158 million in Senate Majority leader Mitch McConnell’s home state of Kentucky.

The Department of Defense said Friday that no decisions have yet been made regarding specific projects. White House officials have said they plan to tap $3.6 billion in yet-to-be spent military construction funds as part of $8 billion in federal money they intend to use for wall construction.
