The border crisis still hasn’t been resolved. The Department of Homeland Security needs for funds to deal with the overcrowding at the detention centers; border apprehensions have hit 100,000 or more over the past few months. It’s a crisis that was wholly avoidable if both parties actually agreed on enforcing immigration laws. The impact of the overcrowding also could have been lessened if the Democrats didn’t think this was a manufactured crisis. With the loss of the House to Democrats during the 2018 midterms, any hope for full wall funding or changing of the asylum laws is dead. Trump re-appropriated DoD for portions of the wall, which drove Democrat ballistic. They filed a lawsuit to block the funds, but a judge rejected it. Now, some 50 miles of the wall was announced to be completed by DHS:
U.S. Customs and Border Protection has completed construction of approximately 50 miles of new bollard wall projects authorized by funding from fiscal years 2017 and 2018.
Since January 2017, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) have received funding to support construction of up to approximately 201-205 miles of new border barriers through a combination of appropriations and the Treasury Forfeiture Fund (TFF). This funding is supporting the top border barrier priorities for the U.S. Border Patrol (USBP).
