The House Democrats’ First Offer To President Trump In Negotiations To Fund His Proposed United States-mexico Border Wall Includes A Provision That Would End All Immigration Enforcement For Migrants Trafficking Children Across The Southern Border.
The draft budget provides the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency with $7.4 billion, nearly $850 million less than requested by the Trump administration, and funds only 1,250 beds for adults and migrant children coming across the border this year, a decrease in detention space.
