Washington, D.C. – Today, Tuesday, September 24th, 2019 at  11:30 a.m., in the Senate Swamp, Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY),  Senate Democratic Policy and Communications Committee Chair Debbie Stabenow (D-MI), Senator Tom Udall (D-NM), and Assistant Democratic Leader Patty Murray (D-WA) will be joined by James Kellar, a former educator at Fort Campbell Middle School, which lost $62 million to build President Trump’s ineffective and expensive southern border wall.  The new middle school project at Fort Campbell is one of 127 military projects—including the reconstruction of hazardous military facilities, repairs and expansion of a child care center, and hurricane recovery—to lose their funding, after the Trump administration redirected $3.6 billion to pay for an unnecessary, ineffective wall at the southern border that the president promised Mexico would pay to build. The Senators will call on Senate Republicans to vote to terminate President Trump’s harmful national emergency declaration to save critical funding for military families across the country.
