Acting Pentagon chief not decided yet on funding border wall

Tehran (KNA) - Acting US Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan says that no decision has been made on whether to fund a wall along the US southern border using Pentagon’s budget.

The remarks come one day after Trump declared a national emergency to bypass congressional approval and secure funding for the construction of his controversial wall on the US-Mexico border.

Trump said Friday that the declaration, which can help him use certain Department of Defense funding to build the wall, would be necessary to deal with what he described as a crisis of illegal immigration.
