Acting Homeland Security Secretary Kevin McAleenan says the department is running out of money amid the crush of migrants crossing the Southern border. He says the White House will send a supplemental request for more funds.
McAleenan told a House panel Tuesday the money will be for temporary and semi-permanent facilities to process families and children and increase detention. He didn’t specify a figure.
He said President Donald Trump would be sending legislative requests for faster deportations and other issues.
