YOUR THREE CENTS: Obama asking Congress for $3.7 billion in emergency funds for immigration crisis

President Obama is asking Congress for $3.7 billion in emergency funds to respond to the flood of immigrants illegally crossing the border into Texas.  The surge of undocumented youths from Central America has overwhelmed federal facilities. Obama administration officials blame the influx on dire conditions in countries such as Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador. But critics say the administration invited the problem by halting deportations of some young immigrants who came to the country illegally in past years. Obama's emergency funding request is just over 10% of the $30 billion in proposed border security funding included in the Senate-passed immigration reform bill that House Republican leaders have stalled. It seeks $1.6 billion for the Department of Homeland Security and the Department of Justice to bolster customs and border efforts. It also asks for $1.8 billion for the Department of Health and Human Services to provide appropriate care for unaccompanied children crossing the border. A spokesman for House Speaker John Boehner said the request would be considered. Do you support the President's request for $3.7 billion dollars in emergency funds for the border crisis?
