President Barack Obamas economic stimulus act allocated $10 million to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) for a program that traced guns sold to straw purchasers, an operation that was designed to prevent Mexican criminal organizations from obtaining U.S. guns.
The $787-billion American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, the stimulus, was passed by Congress and signed into law in February 2009.
