Trump Budget Cuts could Hit Border Protection Services

Trump Budget Cuts could Hit Border Protection Services

Despite the trend signaled by Tuesday's data, and the fact that analyses of U.S. Border Patrol data show apprehensions at the U.S. -Mexico border have been in decline since the early 2000s, President Trump's team's statements on Mexican migration throughout his campaign and into his first several weeks as president have been anything but sparing. The extra spending on detaining undocumented immigrants represents a boon for the prison industry, while the US armed forces will receive their own boost with a $54 billion increase in spending in the name of securing the nation from enemies such as Islamic State.

The DOJ faces a almost $1 billion cut from construction spending in federal prisons, and it will lose a $210 million program that reimbursed some states for the cost of detaining undocumented immigrants.

Intel Chairman: No Evidence Trump Tower Wiretapped
Appearing on Good Morning America Monday, Trump's senior counselor Kellyanne Conway addressed the allegations . "Nothing found. The former Celebrity Apprentice host, 70, has not commented on the matter since his March 4 tweets .

Racing 92 and Stade Francais to merge from next season
Stade Francais lock Pascal Pape expressed his discontent on Twitter, writing "my sadness is so big that I prefer not to comment". Racing 92 are the reigning French champions and both clubs play in the top-tier Top 14 championship.

The Trump administration will roll out two budget plans on Thursday: one that amends the Obama administration's 2017 spending plan, and another for fiscal 2018, which begins on October 1.

"This is the America First budget and in fact we wrote it using the president's own words...the president ran saying he would spend less money overseas and more at home", Mulvaney said explaining the cut to the State Department, adding that the reductions would come from foreign aid and won't affect the "core diplomatic functions" of the department. A comprehensive budget request for FY 2018 will be delivered to Congress in May. It doesn't address taxes, Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid, or make predictions about deficits and the economy. Trump has vowed not to cut Social Security and Medicare and is dead set against raising taxes. There are some hints from Capitol Hill that Democrats might not be alone in this stand against the wall. Top Republicans like Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky and Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Bob Corker of Tennessee are opposed to drastic cuts to foreign aid. As well, Mulvaney revealed that the $54 billion increase would go not just toward Pentagon programs, but also defense-related spending in other departments.
