Border Crisis Emergency Funding Bill: Nearly All Humanitarian Aid - No Border Security

541 views

On Wednesday, by a vote of 30-1, the Senate Appropriations Committee passed an emergency funding bill to address the border crisis. The bill, though, provides no money toward actually securing the border.

The measure was only approved after funding for a wall was pulled from the deal, as Fox News reported.

The bill commits funds as follows:

  • $2.8 billion to the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) for Refugee and Entrant Assistance
  • $1.2 billion for U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and U.S. Immigration Customs and Enforcement (ICE) for the transportation and care of migrants 
  • $140 million to various military branches only to be used for assisting families and minors intercepted at the border
  • $155 to US Marshals for prisoners and their transport
  • $65 million to hiring additional immigration judges
  • $30 million to FEMA for food and shelter programs 

Nothing in the language of the bill dedicates any money to border security or trying to slow the flow of illegal aliens that have been pouring over the U.S.-Mexico border in record numbers.

The bill still faces a Senate and House vote but Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) has expressed confidence that the bill will have bipartisan support  The full bill can be read here
