Obama ready to act alone over border crisis funding

A U.S. Border Patrol agent watches undocumented immigrants after taking them into custody on July 22, 2014 near Falfurrias, TexasPresident Barack Obama said Friday he would seek to redeploy existing resources to tackle the child migrant crisis on the US border after Congress failed to approve additional funds to deal with the problem. “I’m going to have to act alone, because we don’t have enough resources,” Obama said. Obama reiterated that the government required an urgent injection of funding to carry out basic functions at the border, which has been overwhelmed by the tide of young immigrants seeking to enter the United States illegally. Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson has warned that Immigration and Customs Enforcement could run out of money by mid-August, leaving Border Patrol cash-strapped by September as a result.
