(Rebecca Savransky, The Daily Caller News Foundation) – The Trump administration is reportedly considering cutting funding to the Coast Guard, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) and other agencies to find money for the president’s proposed border wall and immigration enforcement plans.
The Washington Post reported that a draft plan, created by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), would also cut the budget of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).
The budget for the Coast Guard would be cut by about 14 percent, from $9.1 billion in 2017 to $7.8 billion under the drafted proposal. The TSA and FEMA budgets would be cut by about 11 percent to $4.5 billion and $3.6 billion, respectively, according to The Post.
According to the plan, the budget for the Department of Homeland Security would increase by 6.4 percent to $43.8 billion.
