Under a newly signed spending bill, American taxpayers will be funding the construction of a border wall between Pakistan and Afghanistan to protect the former from being "infiltrated" by dangerous criminals and terrorists from the latter.

With President Trump’s signing of a Department of Homeland Security (DHS) spending bill, the US will continue to fund border security measures and border walls in Pakistan and Afghanistan, as well as in Egypt and Lebanon.

After weeks of negotiations, the Democrats agreed to free up $1.3 billion for construction of a border wall between the US and Mexico, falling far short of the funding needed to properly secure the overwhelmed Southern Border.

The resistance from the left forced the president to declare a national emergency to free up enough money to build the wall.

Despite the problems associated with soaring illegal immigration, foreign countries are getting help from taxpayers in the United States to secure their borders.

According to Breitbart, the Republican-Democrat spending bill signed by Trump last week provides Pakistan with at least $15 million in U.S. taxpayer money for “border security programs.”

The bill also allocates funding for “cross border stabilization” between Afghanistan and Pakistan.

In total, the spending bill provides about $6 billion in American taxpayer money to finance foreign militaries, some of which can be used by Lebanon to “strengthen border security and combat terrorism.”

The spending bill provides about $112.5 million in U.S. taxpayer money for economic support for Egypt, including $10 million for scholarships for Egyptian students.

Egypt’s military receives about $1.3 billion in the spending bill, some of which can be for border security programs.

Additionally, the spending bill includes:

Meanwhile, illegal immigration at the U.S.-Mexico border has swelled in recent months. 

In December 2018, the last month for illegal border crossing totals, there were close to 51,000 border crossings. 

The month before, there were nearly 52,000 border crossings.

Experts project there to be at least 606,000 crossings this year at the southern border, a level of illegal immigration that surpasses nearly every year of illegal immigration under President Obama.
