Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal

Obama's Proposed Immigration Enforcement Agenda is Business as Usual

Rate this Entry

President Obama's proposed FY2013 budget includes a very modest (0.5%) reduction of funds dedicated to immigration enforcement, or $191 million fewer dollars to spread around.


Here is what is proposed:



  • Continuing current enforcement priorities against undocumented immigrants; 

  • Maintaining the number of Customs and Border Protection officers (21,186) and Border Patrol agents (21,370);

  • Streamlining collection data from international travelers; 

  • Continuing E-Verify, and Systematic Alien Verification Entitlements (SAVE); 

  • Reducing the number of immigrant detainees; and

  • Consolidating the US-Visit program with Customs and Border Protection, and Immigration and Customs Enforcement. 


A coalition of Texas-border mayors, county judges and economic development association aren't happy about it.


Here is what Ramsey Cantu, Eagle Pass mayor and chairman of the Texas Boarder Coalition has to say: "we are extremely disappointed that the federal budget does not include additional resources for the Southern border crossings, and that security at these facilities remains a low priority for this Administration in the year to come."
