The Big Ask

The White House has requested $3.7 billion in emergency funds to address the immigration crisis: $1.6 billion to strengthen customs and border security and efforts to crack down on smugglers; $300 million to help Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador to counter claims smugglers make to parents of a permiso guaranteeing children will be able to stay in the U.S. and to educate parents about the dangers the children face only to be most likely sent home; and $1.8 billion for the care of unaccompanied minors in U.S. custody, including room and board, mental and physical health exams and educational resources.
