Biden Wants To Cut Funding for ‘Border Security Assets and Infrastructure’ by 96%

President Joe Biden has now revealed there is at least one area in which he is a fiscal conservative: When it comes to providing the infrastructure needed to secure the border, he wants to spend far less than the government currently spends.

By Terence P. Jeffrey | August 4, 2021 | CNS News:

His administration has presented Congress with a Department of Homeland Security budget proposal that calls for slashing spending on what it calls “Border Security Assets and Infrastructure” by 96%.

In fiscal 2021, Congress approved $1,513,000,000 in funding for border security assets and infrastructure. Biden is now asking that Congress approve just $54,315,000 for fiscal 2022. That is a reduction of $1,458,685,000 — or 96.4%.

What exactly is Biden cutting?

Biden’s DHS has presented Congress with a 562-page “overview” of its fiscal 2022 budget proposal for Customs and Border Protection. The explanation for its “Border Security Assets and Infrastructure” plan is presented on pages 326 through 350 of this document.

The presentation divides “Border Security Assets and Infrastructure” into six categories: Integrated Fixed Towers (IFT); Remote Video Surveillance Systems (RVSS); Mobile Video Surveillance System (MVSS); MVSS-M2S2 Modular Mobile Surveillance System; Border Security Assets and Infrastructure End Items; and Border Wall System Program.

In fiscal 2020, it received $1,375,000,000. In fiscal 2021, it received the same amount.In the past two fiscal years — as reported in Biden’s proposal — the Border Wall System Program has been the most significant of these. “This investment,” it says, “includes real estate and environmental planning, land acquisition, wall system design, construction, and construction and oversight of a physical barrier system.”

Now, if Biden gets his way, the federal government will not spend one penny in fiscal 2022 on planning or constructing a “physical barrier system” at the border.

“Integrated Fixed Towers” are the next item in DHS’s budget proposal for border security. “This investment,” according to the proposal, “provides automated, persistent wide-area surveillance for the detection, tracking, identification and classification of illegal entries in threat areas where mobile surveillance systems are not a viable and/or long-term solution.”

How much does Biden want for this piece of infrastructure? Nothing.

In fiscal 2020, Congress approved $1,142,000 for these towers. This fiscal year, it approved nothing. Biden wants to make sure it approves nothing again.

“Remote Video Surveillance Systems” are the next item in DHS’s budget proposal for border security. “This investment,” says the proposal, “consists of permanently mounted remotely controlled systems of daylight or infrared cameras, which enhance situational awareness of border activity and facilitate proper law enforcement resolution.”

How much does Biden want for this piece of infrastructure? Nothing.

In fiscal 2020, Congress approved $40,740,000 for these surveillance systems. This fiscal year, it approved nothing. Biden wants to make sure it approves nothing again.

“Mobile Video Surveillance System” is the next item. “This investment consists of sensor equipment mounted on a telescoping mast of a light-duty pickup truck,” the proposal says. “MVSS can be rapidly deployed to provide the best visual range for surveillance of several miles and provide situational awareness to the USBP.”

In fiscal 2020, Congress approved $14,800,000 for these systems. This year, it approved nothing. Biden wants nothing again.
