Shot/Chaser – Kyl Says Border Security Cuts “Would Do Damage”


“House Bill Threatens Border Security, Dems Say. Senate Democrats and the Obama administration say a stopgap spending bill passed by House Republicans cuts funding for 250 Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents and threatens future funding for nearly 900 Border Patrol agents. House Republicans dispute that assertion, charging that Democrats are making false accusations for political gain.”


“Kyl: DHS cuts ‘would do damage’. Minority Whip Jon Kyl of Arizona, the No. 2 Republican in the Senate, said he’ll be “pushing for changes” to a House-passed bill that calls for more than $600 million in cuts to the Homeland Security Department, which oversees security of the nation’s borders… ‘I think that the overall cut would do damage,’ he added, ‘but it depends on where you apply the cuts as to exactly what damage is done.’”
