Obama 'Admin' Seeks Extra $1.4 Billion to Deal with Flood of Illegal Unaccompanied Children

From Will at THE OTHER NEWS:

Obama 'Admin' Seeks Extra $1.4 Billion to Deal with Flood of Illegal Unaccompanied Children. HT:CNSNews.

Pres. Obama is seeking an additional $1.4 billion to deal with the flood of Unaccompanied Alien Children (UAC) into the U.S., a Congressional Research Service report reveals. 

Obama's FY2015 budget did not originally seek an increase in UAC funding for government agencies - but, on May 30, the administration nearly tripled its UAC budget request for the Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) by asking for an additional $1.4 billion: 

In the President's FY2015 budget for the various agencies responsible for the UAC population (i.e., specifically in HHS/ORR and DHS budgets), there wasn't a request for funding increases to help address what has been characterized as a strain on agency resources.

The FY2015 President's budget request for the HHS/ORR program was originally $868 million, which is the same amount that was appropriated in FY2014. However, on May 30, 2014, the Office of Management and Budget updated its cost projections related to the UAC crisis and requested a total of $2.28 billion for FY2015 for the UAC program in the Office of Refugee Resettlement. 

In response, the Senate Committee on Appropriations Subcommittee on Labor, Health, and Human Services, and Education and Related Agencies, recommended $1.94 billion, which is $34 million less than the Administration's amended request - but, still more than $1 billion increase over FY2014 levels - in its FY2015 draft appropriations bill on June 10, 2014.Read the full story here.

ABC15.com: Refusing to answer Border Patrols' questions could have consequences, says attorney
Border Patrol : "Are you an American citizen?"

There’s a new trend to refuse to answer U.S. Border Patrol agents’ questions: “Are you an American citizen?”, but an attorney there could be consequences.

YouTube videos show drivers being stopped either at checkpoints or at random, refusing to answer Border Patrol Agents about their citizenship.

“The government cannot be intruding on your passage within the United States without probable cause,” said Immigration Attorney Ruben Reyes.
