Border Security Falls Short Funds Only 30 Miles of #BUILDTHEFENCE

Primarily, check out what was slipped in on page 673. Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) called it the worst bill he’s ever seen since he arrived in Congress.
1) Border Security Falls Short 
The legislation provides $1.571 billion for “physical barriers and associated technology along the southern border including to hire new border patrol agents and acquire new technology, aircraft, sensors, and non-intrusive inspection equipment,” according to a Republican Study Committee (RSC) document obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation.
That funding would include only $641 million for roughly 30 miles of new border wall security — under half of what the president asked Congress for previously. In total, Congress is providing grossly under the $25 billion the White House asked for construction of a border wall and enhanced border security. From The Daily Caller
