The U.S. Department of Defense on Monday gave the Congress a list of projects that may be affected by the plan to build a wall along the Mexican border.
The projects included equipment maintenance facilities, training areas and schools for military families. Some of the projects are planned within U.S. soil while some are to be located in other countries.
The Trump administration has requested the diversion of 3.6 billion dollars, part of the spending of these projects, to building the border wall.
In a memo attached to the list, the Pentagon said it has included the 3.6 billion dollars in the fiscal year 2020 budget request to guarantee the construction of the affected projects.
The list was provided to lawmakers days after acting Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan had promised to deliver the information, and is expected to add ammunition for lawmakers who opposed Trump's emergency declaration, an executive order that offered the legal basis for tapping into the defense fund to build the border wall.
"We know President Trump wants to take money from our national security accounts to pay for his wall, and now we have a list of some of the projects and needed base repairs that could be derailed or put on the chopping block as a result," the Senate Armed Services Committee ranking member Jack Reed said in a statement.
"Now that members of Congress can see the potential impact this proposal could have on projects in their home states, I hope they will take that into consideration before the vote to override the president's veto," Reed said.
Both the House of Representatives and Senate have voted to block Trump's emergency declaration but the U.S. president has vetoed their blocking resolutions.
The House is expected to make an attempt to override the president's veto on March 26.
