house Bill H.R. 240

Funding The Department of Homeland Security For FY 2015

Argument in favor

This is a relatively modest increase in the DHS budget, and would allow the department to carry out its mission of securing U.S. borders and protecting the American people from foreign threats.

There's a lot not to like in this bill, but not passing it is just not an option. The lot of a lawmaker is not easy.

This is one of the only departments we should be funding for national security.

We need this to keep our country safe, that's more important than anything else, nothing else matters if we're dead.

Argument opposed

This bill cuts too much in some areas, while spending too much on agencies that would have their budgets reduced under the President’s budget request. Plus, these funds are being used to threaten the President's executive action on immigration.

This program has been expensive and has not been successful, like the war on drugs. Stop wasting taxpayer money and fund programs that help the American people.

DHS has yet to show a significant reason to warrant their existence, much less an increase in their budget appropriations.

There's just not enough "good" in this bill for it to pass. Needs some major reconstructing.
