Bill allocates $1.6 billion for Trump’s border wall
The House Appropriations Committee on Tuesday released a bill allocating $1.6 billion to begin construction of a physical barrier along the U.S. border with Mexico, one of President Trump’s central campaign promises.
 
The bill funding the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) for fiscal year 2018 also negates one of Trump’s central promises, that Mexico would pay for the construction of the wall.
 
“Keeping Americans safe by protecting our homeland is a top priority. This funding bill provides the resources to begin building a wall along our southern border, enhance our existing border security infrastructure, hire more border patrol agents, and fund detention operations,” said House Appropriations Homeland Security Subcommittee Chairman John Carter.

Earlier in the day, DHS spokesman David Lapan said that the requested funding would be crucial to moving the project beyond current repairs, replacements and prototype projects.
 
“On the DHS side it’s clear that we’ve gotten a direction to secure the southern border, that a wall and barrier is part of that process along with people and technology and that funding from Congress is required for us to move forward on that,” he said.
 
Conservative lawmakers in recent days had begun warning that they would pull their votes from a budget and spending plan that failed to fund the wall.
 
House Freedom Caucus Chairman Rep. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) went so far as to tell Breitbart News that Trump would not sign a spending measure if a wall were not funded, though the White House has not commented on the matter.
 
The bill's accompanying report, to be released next week, will specify where the segments of the wall are to be built and their associated funding.
 
In total, the bill allocates $13.8 billion to customs and border protection. That includes the $1.6 billion for the wall, $100 million to hire 500 more Border Patrol agents, $131 million for new border technology, $106 million for aircraft and sensors and $109 million for "non-intrusive inspection equipment."
 
It also adds $619.7 million to Immigration and Customs Enforcement over current levels, bringing total funding for ICE to $7 billion.

据美国国会山报(The Hills)报导,被视为川普(Donald Trump)选前一大政见之一的美墨边境「长城」,看来即将开始动工兴建,美国联邦衆议院今批准16亿美元的预算,资助国土安全部(Department of Homeland Security)将可在明年(2018)正式开始于边境兴建「保护美国安全」的那道高墙。衆院拨款委员会主席约翰·卡特(John Carter)表示,「这笔预算将以保护民衆和国土为最高原则,提供资源在南边的边境,进行兴建高墙、聘用巡防人员,以及相关查缉任务,让美国更加安全。」

美国与墨西哥的边境地区,一直都是非法移民、帮派和毒品运输氾灠区域,但多年来,美国政府在边境贸易和多项産业缺工的考量下,往往是睁一隻眼闭一隻眼的处理,一方面加强边境检查和防卫,另一方面却不定时地给予非法移民「特赦」的机会,加上美墨边境多为沙漠地形,让走私和偷渡的情况防不胜防。川普从投入共和党总统初选开始,就不断提及盖长城的「政见」,造成他与美国国内拉丁裔族群,以及墨西哥政府一直处在紧张与不合的状态。

事实上,这份法案的金额远高于16亿美元,预估将有138亿美元的预算,包含提拨1亿美元,新聘雇500名以上的边境巡防队员;1.31亿美元更新边境管理上所使用的科技産品;1.06亿美元购买新型的飞行设备和感应器材;以及1.09亿美元则是更新边境检查设备,明显地看出川普政府与共和党国会,有意强化对南边移民政策的紧缩,会産生多大的冲击和影响,将是外界关注的未来焦点之一。
