#REDFLAG: In Feb, after Trump was forced to reopen the government for 3 weeks, following the 35 day #TrumpShutdown...

...a bipartisan committee hashed out an immigration funding compromise to avoid another one.

But...WHERE. DID. THE. MONEY. GO?

#ATTN: The bipartisan deal included:

🔹 $1.375B — 55 miles of New Fencing.
🔹 $524.2M — Ports of Entry + 600 New Border Agents.
🔹 $415M — Humanitarian Aid at Border.

AND...

🔹 $563.4M — for Immigration Courts, (incl. $59M for) 75 NEW JUDGES.
🔹 $527M — Aid to Central America.
#FLAG: Congress JUST passed funding for 75 new Immigration Judges, largely to hear asylum claims.

Today, AG Bill Barr boasted about DOJ's progress...PRIOR to this year.

Yet, he's requesting $72M to hire 100 new judges in FY2020.

But...WHERE DID THE MONEY GO FROM THE LAST DEAL?
