Money for Hurricane Harvey relief may fund Trump's border wall: source

Houston and Harris County are still recovering from Harvey. trump wants to use money designated for Houston and Harris County to build his wall https://abc13.com/5050389/?fbclid=IwAR1PeERhzACSNRI-IXqynMhx22DVOazDeSvz33ZN4for9_3E0iAplidZU5Q

The White House is directing the Army Corps of Engineers to find money within its own budget to fund President Trump's border wall under a national emergency declaration, including money earmarked for Hurricane Harvey relief.

Sources familiar with the matter tell ABC News the White House specifically asked the Corps to examine what funds could be redirected to the border wall from a $13.9 billion emergency supplemental designed to fund more than 50 disaster relief projects in California, Florida, Texas and Puerto Rico.

A U.S. official told ABC News the money could be used to build as much as 315 miles of border wall, under the direction of the Army Corps of Engineers.

News came as President Trump made a visit to the border between the U.S. and Mexico at McAllen, Texas, where he met with state officials.

2. Houston, we have a problem!

This will not go over well in the Republican areas SE of Houston where they're still trying to rebuild.

7. I'm thinking also about the land he wants to grab under eminent domain

Pretty soon, everyone in Texas will loathe the mother fucker. I await the bumper stickers that say "Don't Mess With Texas" and show the Rump's face.

10. Sounds like a win/win.

And I really think you should patent that bumper sticker and start producing.

9. To be fair, a lot of the lower costal regions impacted by Harvey were pretty red.

Not all, but a lot of it.

I'm a tender heart. As such I still feel for everyone who is going to suffer if this happens. There's still so much work to be done and locally vital businesses that need the assistance.
