The Supreme Court decided last week that Department of Defense funding could be used to construct sections of President Donald Trump's border wall. Notably, it said about $224 million would be taken from the Blended Retirement System,
which combines elements of the military's retirement system with a
system offering benefits similar to civilian 401(k) programs. Other programs set to significantly lose funding: $604 million that was
supposed to support Afghan security forces; $251 million in Pentagon
funds for destroying US chemical weapons; and about $343 million "in
spending from Air Force weapons programs where officials have negotiated
reductions or canceled systems,".
