SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - A New Mexico congresswoman whose district borders Mexico says local military projects are at risk of being defunded to pay for border projects based on President Trump's declaration of an emergency.

Democratic Rep. U.S. Rep. Xochitl Torres Small on Tuesday explained her vote in support of a futile attempt to override Trump's border-emergency declaration.

She says projects listed by the Defense Department as being at risk of defunding include training facilities at Holloman Air Force Base and an information systems facility slated for White Sands Missile Range.

The House and Senate previously approved a resolution annulling the national emergency that Trump declared at the U.S.-Mexico border. Trump vetoed the measure almost immediately. A House override attempt fell 38 votes shy of the required two-thirds margin.
