Excerpts from article:

...Senate Democrats on Wednesday introduced legislation to reverse 's decision to shift billions in military funding toward the U.S.-Mexico border wall and place new limitations on the Pentagon's transfer authority.

...The bill would restore the $3.8 billion the Pentagon announced earlier this month that it would shift from various weapons programs to help build approximately 177 miles of border fencing back to the military accounts.

...The bill would also cut the amount of money the Pentagon would have the ability to transfer going forward, in an attempt to prevent the administration from leveraging military funding in the future.

...Trump's decision to raid the military accounts to help build the border wall has sparked bipartisan frustration in Congress.

...Trump also previously declared a national emergency to shift $3.6 billion to the border wall.
