As House Republicans and Joe Biden gear up to fight about a massive $6.8 trillion appropriations bill, some of Biden’s priorities in the spending bill have come to light.
While Biden has seen an unprecedented increase in illegal immigration, with over 2 million illegal immigrants being apprehended at the border in Fiscal Year 2022, increasing funding for border security and personnel appears to be a low priority in his proposed budget.
The bill will allow for 500 more border patrol agents to be hired but appropriate billions of dollars to give illegal immigrants accommodations after they enter the United States and to NGO’s who help shepherd them across the border.
While House Republicans expressed concern about the lack of money appropriated to border security, some have said that the Republicans who sit on the House Appropriations Committee do not inspire confidence.
Reps. Dan Newhouse (R-WA), and Rep. Juan Ciscomani (R-AZ). Rep. Tony Gonzales (R-TX), Rep. Andy Harris (R-MD), Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart (R-FL), Rep. Tom Cole (R-OK), and Rep. Michael Simpson (R-ID) all sit on the Appropriations Committee and have previously shown a lack of commitment to border security.

President Joe Biden’s budget asks for more money to help deliver more legal, quasi-legal, and illegal migrants into the jobs and homes needed by Americans.
Biden’s budget asks for money to hire 500 extra border guards who catch migrants — and money to hire 460 more people to release the migrants so they can travel to jobs and housing.
The Democrats’ budget asks for a $4.7 billion “contingency fund” to operate the existing network of non-profit groups, shelters, training courses, travel routes, and healthcare checks which get low-wage migrants into the jobs that would otherwise go to better-paid Americans.
The budget requests extra money to convert illegal migrants into legal residents — but asks for less money to comply with the legal requirement of detaining illegal migrants before they reach U.S. jobs.
Biden’s budget also asks for $4 billion for the Department of State so it can keep funding the foreign groups that help migrants travel from around the world into Latin America and then up to the border.
The budget also asks Congress for funds to bring in another 125,000 migrants for Americans’ jobs and homes.
