The Washington Post reported January 13 that President Donald Trump would use his national emergency powers to:
Divert an additional $7.2 billion in Pentagon funding to build a border wall this year. That’s five times the amount of money authorized by Congress for the project in the 2020 budget, according to internal planning figures obtained by The Washington Post.
The Pentagon funds would be extracted from two sources, for the second year in a row, $3.7 billion from one fund for military construction and $3.5 billion from another for counter-narcotic programs. According to the plans, “the funding would give the government enough money to complete about 885 miles of new fencing by spring 2022, far more than the 509 miles the administration has slated for the U.S. border with Mexico.”
A new website “TrumpWallconstrution” went live recently with information on the current progress of the Trump Border Wall. The website includes an interactive map that has information on planning and current work in progress of the prominent sectors of the border wall.

So with my interactive map you can see exactly where the wall is being built as well as current “wall”
