Obama To Approve $600 Million For Border Security Today

In spite of ignorant statements by some that the president “is choosing” not to secure the border, more resources are being given to the issue. And not for the first time.

Among other things, the bill provides for roughly 1,500 new law enforcement agents, new unmanned aerial vehicles, new forwarding operating bases and $14 million in new communications equipment.

Obama argued that the new law would facilitate cooperation along the border between the U.S. and Mexican governments, and asserted that it would make “an important difference” in the push for comprehensive immigration reform.

The bill will be paid for by higher fees on companies that bring foreign workers into the United States.
