Immigration enforcement faces modest cuts in Obama budget planPublished: Feb 15, 2012 8:00 am By: Regina Garcia Cano - Houston Chronicle
"The Department of Homeland Security and its immigration enforcement efforts took a modest cut under President Obama’s proposed federal budget for 2013 that he unveiled Monday.
The belt-tightening proposed budget calls for a reduction of 0.5 percent — or $191 million — from the 2012 mark of $39.5 billion.
The president’s proposal seems to strengthen immigration enforcement against undocumented immigrants while reducing the number of those in detention. If approved by Congress, the budget would maintain funds and the number of deployed officers along the northern and southern borders, streamline collection data from international travelers and expand immigration verification systems."
