    House panel OKs $1.6 billion as down payment for Trump wall construction

    Approves $44.3 billion in spending for the Department of Homeland Security

    By Seth McLaughlin - The Washington Times - Tuesday, July 18, 2017

    The House Appropriations Committee on Tuesday approved $44.3 billion in spending for the Department of Homeland Security - including $1.6 billion down payment on the construction of a wall along the US-Mexico border.

    The proposal marks a $1.7 billion increase over the current fiscal year.

    “This bill fully supports our men and women on the frontlines who work tirelessly to keep us safe,” said Rep. Rodney Frelinghuysen, chairman of the Appropriations Committee. “The bill also provides the necessary funding for critical technology and physical barriers to secure our borders.”

    The proposal passed out of committee on a 30-22 vote.

    The spending plan also includes $13.8 billion for Customs and Border Protection, which covers the Trump administration’s border wall request as well as the cost of hiring 500 new border patrol agents, and investing in new technology.

    The proposal also sets aside $7 billion for Immigration and Custom Enforcement - a $617 million increase. More than $185 million will be used to hire 1,000 more law enforcement agents and support staff, and to increase the number of detention beds.
