Obama Requests $3.7 Billion In Emergency Funds To Address Border Crisis

It wants to create 16 new drone crews and support 17,000 extra flight hours, according to a fact sheet on the spending request the White House releasedTuesday. A brigade of lawyers budgeted at $15 million would go to the border to provide representation for immigrant kids as they make their way through the judicial process. But the spending request didnt include proposals that would allow President Obama to speed deportations. The administration took flak from immigrant rights groups after saying it would spell out requests to give the Homeland Security secretary more discretion to send people back quickly.

Mrs. Clinton was the industrys home state senator, and the financial sector was the second-largest giver to her presidential campaign in 2008. In her post-State Department life, she has been showered with lucrative speaking fees from Goldman Sachs, J. P. Morgan and other financial firms. In her talks, she says it is unproductive to vilify the industry, and she avoids the kind of language that puts off financial executives, as when President Obama referred to fat cat bankers in 2009.
