Bloggings on Deportation and Removal

by Matthew Kolken

Obama's Proposed Immigration Enforcement Agenda is Business as Usual

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 prioritites 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.
