The Unkindest Cut: $226 Million Cut From Southern Border Fence… At The Suggestion of Team Obama
In case you had any concerns about the Obama administration’s commitment to border security…
Or the need for MORE border security…
Sheriff Babeu explains it quite well.
The Hill reported on the details of the 2011 spending cut bill.
House and Senate appropriators revealed details of the 2011 spending-cut deal early Tuesday morning, missing a self-imposed midnight deadline.
In dueling press releases, House Republicans emphasized the magnitude of cuts they won in the six-month spending bill after marathon negotiations, while Senate Democrats emphasized cuts they were able to avoid or diminish.[…]
The Homeland Security Department sees significant cuts as well: $226 million is cut from the southern border fence at the suggestion of the Obama administration, and the number of Transportation Security Administration workers is capped. FEMA first-responder grants are cut by $786 million.
Each day it becomes more obvious that this administration is not serious about border security or stemming illegal immigration.
