(Worthy News) – House Democrats introduced a Homeland Security Department spending bill Tuesday that aims to wipe away large chunks of President Trump’s legacy, including restrictions on deploying agency personnel to policeprotests and clawing back more than $2 billion in border wall money that lawmakers had already approved.
The legislation rejects Republican calls to hire more Border Patrol agents, cuts the number of detention beds at ICE facilities and pours money into alternatives such as ankle bracelets and counseling programs that are popular with immigrant rights advocates.
Homeland Security Investigations, the detective side of ICE, gets a 6% cash infusion — but also a restriction on any immigration enforcement work. But the detention and deportation side of ICE would be cut by 8%, and the Federal Emergency Management Agency, the disaster response agency, would be brought in to help with detention.
