President Donald Trump
by NumbersUSA Staff: President Trump sent a supplemental spending request to Congress to fund the government for the remainder of FY2017 that includes a large increase in spending for the Department of Homeland Security.

$76 million to build hiring capacity to recruit and onboard 10,000 ICE agents and officers;
$5 million for homeland security investigations intelligence activities; and
$5 million to support the expansion of the Section 287(g) Program.

------------------ NumbersUSA Education & Research Foundation provides a civil forum for Americans of all political and ethnic backgrounds to focus on a single issue, the numerical level of U.S. immigration. We educate opinion leaders, policymakers and the public on immigration legislation, policies and their consequences. We favor reductions in immigration numbers toward traditional levels that would allow present and future generations of Americans to enjoy a stabilizing U.S. population and a high degree of individual liberty, mobility, environmental quality, worker fairness and fiscal responsibility.
