White House to Seek $3.8 billion for Border Control, More Than Previously Signaled
The White House on Tuesday will request $3.8 billion from Congress in emergency funding to deal with an influx of unaccompanied minors from Central America, a far higher amount that the Obama administration had previously signaled, according to a Capitol Hill source familiar with the plans.
The money would go to several federal agencies, including the Departments of Justice, Homeland Security, State and Health and Human Services. Funds would be allocated to send more immigration judges to the southern border, build additional detention facilities and add border patrol agents, said the source, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the administration had not formally made the request.

Billions spent on catch and release won't solve our problems.
Just put troops on the border
Shut down the border.
Send in the National Guard.
Shut down all money transfers from US banks to Mexico.
Your move Enrique ..
If Congress had any guts, which they don’t (and that’s ignoring that a good many of them support amnesty anyway), they would refuse to give The Won any money which does not first and foremost, build a fence and deport the illegals already here.
Don't take illegals into custody - repel them.
Need to fill those DEM Coffers for the midterms
To this administration Border Control = Welcome committee and handouts for more ILLEGALS
Money to secure the border, or money to line the pockets of Obama’s Acorn-type socialist lawyers working to keep each and every illegal here and on welfare?
Problem is they’re not using the money for border security, they’re now running the world’s largest coyote human trafficking and escort service. Cut the BP budget!
Not one cent for tribute.
It’s not for border control. It’s for housing and feeding and medical care for the illegals.
None of it is for border security.
Assuming a $500K chartered round trip flight to Central America, that’s 7,600 flights. Assuming 180 passengers per flight, that’s almost 1.4 million deportations.
Yeah, unfortunately in Obama speak $3.8 Billion for “border security” really means $3.8 Billion to provide handouts, free lawyers, and of course democrat voter signup drives for those crossing the border.....
The agents are needed to feed and diaper the children, not patrol the border.
My thoughts exactly - this is BS.
This isn’t even counting how much the States and charities are spending.
