As the dangers presented by terrorism and organized crime continue to grow, US border agencies must consistently adapt to address new and evolving challenges. The success of efforts to utilize intelligent systems and data is critical to achieving current security objectives and ensuring the safety and prosperity of citizens and migrants alike.
The FY2023 budget provisions $56 billion for the Department of Homeland Security, $130 million towards increasing and improving CBP personnel and systems, and a $1.4 billion investment for DOJ immigration courts. This funding is critical towards achieving US border security goals and supporting the efforts of law enforcement agencies to detect, identify, and stop criminal activity.
