A group of migrants from Guatemala walk along the Mexican side of the border wall looking for an opportunity to enter the United States to seek asylum, near El Paso, Texas, June 28, 2019.

WASHINGTON - Defense Secretary Mark Esper on Tuesday approved the use of $3.6 billion in funding from military construction projects to build 175 miles of President Donald Trump's wall along the Mexican border.

Pentagon officials would not say which 127 projects will be affected, but said details will be available Wednesday after members of Congress are notified. They said half the money will come from military projects in the U.S., and the rest will come from projects in other countries.
