    Spending bill forces DHS to cut detention beds for illegal immigrants

    Spending bill forces DHS to cut detention beds for illegal immigrants

    Trump banned from using his wall designs for new border fence

    By Stephen Dinan - The Washington Times - Wednesday, March 21, 2018

    The massive new spending bill released Wednesday will force Homeland Security to cut the number of detention beds it has available to hold illegal immigrants for the rest of this year.

    The bill also rejects President Trump’s requests for 1,000 new deportation officers and 500 new Border Patrol agents — though it does add 328 officers to man the ports of entry.

    Lawmakers did agree to $1.3 billion for border fencing, delivering a small downpayment on Mr. Trump’s demand for a border wall. But there, too, the numbers are not what the White House had sought, with just 33 miles of the border gaining new fencing. Another 14 miles that currently have a barriers will get a second layer of fencing, and 48 miles of existing barriers will be replaced.

    Mr. Trump is also specifically banned from using any of the designs from his just-completed border wall competition, and must instead use existing versions he’s criticized.

    Democrats, despite defeating most of Mr. Trump’s big funding requests, said they still felt like they’d given up too much.

    “While the bill rejects the administration’s request for tens of billions for a border wall, does not fund the president’s deportation force, and requires Immigrations and Customs Enforcement to reduce the number of detention beds currently in use, the amount provided is nonetheless a waste of money and contrary to our national character,” said Rep. Nita Lowey, the ranking Democrat on the House Appropriations Committee.

    Less detention beds means more catch and release of illegal aliens.

    Don't reward the criminal actions of millions of illegal aliens by giving them citizenship.

    This is false reporting because the money is not for a downpayment on Trump's wall! It is only for small sections of the same old fencing system already in place.
