DOD diverts funds for projects in Japan to build border wall

NHK reported online on the Pentagon’s disclosure on Wednesday that more than 10% of the $3.6 billion in defense spending that will be diverted from military construction projects at home and abroad to build barriers along the U.S.-Mexico border is money originally earmarked for facilities improvement projects at five U.S. military installations in Japan. According to the network, some $400 million in funding for projects in Japan, including the construction of a hangar at Yokota AB and a fueling station at MCAS Iwakuni, will be diverted to border wall construction.
