In this day and age, we need security for are nation more than ever. Cyber space needs protection. We have kid in this country that are able to break into our systems. The border wall is of a major importance not only to keep illegals out but also to make sure that people that have terrorist affiliations can’t get in

While I’d like to see more funding appropriated for the completion of a border wall/double-fence along necessary sections of the US-Mexico border, this is a decent bill to fund DHS. I strongly agree with the increased funding for CBP and ICE. DHS needs to implement use of the biometric entry exit system which was authorized way back in 2007. E-verify needs to be made permanent and mandatory to turn off the jobs magnet. We allow over a million people into our great Nation each year legally; we cannot afford illegal immigration to continue. Illegal aliens place stress on our social safety net programs, our school district budgets, and drive wages down.

We don’t need more Federal funding for more ICE officers. We do need funding for the Federal Immigration Judges and Courts. More funding for Trump’s wall is unnecessary.

Argument opposed

This bill wouldn’t provide all of the needed funding to complete the border wall. Alternatively, it shouldn’t provide so much funding for border security provisions.

I am opposed to funding Trump's wall and funding ICE. Today I saw a child refuse to go to his own Mom after being separated from her for months. If Trump's wall is built I will help future generations take it down.

DHS has contributed nothing but the TSA who has had over 400 agents arrested for theft, but have yet to stop a single terrorist, ICE with their infamous detention centers and deportations, and warrantless searches and surveillance. It should be disbanded.

I can’t support anything that gives the TSA more money. They have failed miserably at their job. Also, while I am in favor of border security, the only wall that I am in favor of is a virtual wall. Cameras, drones, and whatever other methods of detection, but not a physical wall. On the border where a wall already stands, the crossers just go over, under, through, or around it.

    No funding for Trump's racist border wall. It's a huge waste of money. Stop spending money on racism. Spend that money on our social programs, health care, & enterstrucker. No increase in funding to ice. Ice is not doing what they are suppose to be doing. They have become nothing but a racist machine for Trump & his administration.

    We don't need a wall. It won't help the problem. It will cost a lot of money which could be better spent else where.

    Wall is not needed,. It takes land from people. There are ways to get around a wall such as tunnels which are all ready in place. This money is needed for other things!

    We don't need a border wall, and in general, funding for federal agencies should be decreasing, not increasing. We can't keep spending money that doesn't exist. Would it be possible to appoint Dave Ramsey as budget czar?
