Luján Statement on Trump Administration Cuts to Military

Nambé, N.M. – U.S. House Assistant Speaker Ben Ray Luján (D-N.M.) issued the following statement on the Trump administration’s decision to divert funding from critical military projects for a border wall:

“President Trump’s reckless decision to rob our service members and shortchange critical defense projects puts our national security at risk. Our service members depend on these critical funds to keep our families and country safe. It is clear this is nothing more than a money grab by the president to fund a useless vanity project. This we know: Mexico was never going to pay for the wall, and now our military is being forced to foot the bill.
