Pentagon Chief Visits US-Mexico Border 02/23 10:22

   The Pentagon's acting chief is visiting the U.S.-Mexico border in Texas as 
he considers how to use emergency powers invoked by President Donald Trump to 
help build a border wall.

   EL PASO, Texas (AP) -- The Pentagon's acting chief is visiting the 
U.S.-Mexico border in Texas as he considers how to use emergency powers invoked 
by President Donald Trump to help build a border wall.

   Acting Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan arrived Saturday in El Paso with 
Gen. Joseph Dunford, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

   Shanahan plans to get a firsthand view of areas along the border, west of El 
Paso, where military troops are assisting U.S. Customs and Border Protection 
with barrier replacement work. The sites are along known drug smuggling 
corridors.

   It's Shanahan's first visit to the border since taking over at the Pentagon 
on Jan. 1 after Jim Mattis resigned as defense secretary in protest of Trump's 
policies.
