Cornyn opposes use of Harvey funds on border wall
Sen. John Cornyn
says he will oppose any effort to reprogram U.S. Army Corps of Engineers
funding from Hurricane Harvey relief efforts to a border wall along the
United States-Mexico border.
As the current shutdown of the federal government now
drags into a record 22 days, the idea that Pres. Donald Trump would declare a national emergency and redeploy
funding to the construction of a southern border wall has been an ongoing
source of speculation.
