There is no money left in Biden's budget for the border-wall
President Biden requested for $1.2 billion in his budget to restart the construction of border-wall, reversing a policy of former president Trump.
President reportedly asked for additional $861 million in aid to America “as part of a comprehensive strategy to address the root causes of irregular migration” from the region to the U.S.
But as it turned out, there is no money left for the border-security technology.
“The discretionary request includes no additional funding for border wall construction and proposes the cancellation of prior-year balances that are unobligated at the end of 2021,” say budget documents released by the White House.
A more-comprehensive budget is expected from the White House later this spring. Friday’s request begins Congress’s annual appropriations process, requiring lawmakers to pass funding bills before Oct. 1.
