During a Senate Armed Services Committee hearing Thursday, senators - Jack Reed, D-R.I., Tim Kaine, D-Va., and Angus King, I-Maine, most notably - grilled Shanahan about the list.

Under the national emergency declared at the southern border by President Donald Trump on February 15, the administration has been seeking an initial $3.6 billion from military construction projects to fund additional construction of the wall.

The Pentagon released a list Monday of hundreds of military construction projects worldwide totaling almost $6.8 billion, many of which could be delayed or have funds diverted to fund the southern border wall.

The more than 20-page document seen by Reuters included all the projects that were not awarded funding as of December 31 2018.

The Pentagon memo also says that across the military, no housing, barracks, or dormitory projects are affected by cuts for the wall.

The list had been requested by lawmakers as part of their effort to oversee the Trump administration's repurposing of as much as $3.6 billion in military construction funds for border wall construction, a move made possible by Trump's emergency declaration. Congress appropriated $1.4 billion for border wall construction, far short of Trump's request.

The Republican senator, who isn't usually a pro-Trump senator, voted with the president on the resolution, previously explaining that his decision was because "we have an obvious crisis at the border", as IJR Red reported. "This will help stop Crime, Human Trafficking, and Drugs entering our Country".
