ABSTRACT

DHS Appropriations FY2017: Security, Enforcement, and Investigations [October 27, 2016]   [open pdf - 1MB]

"This report is part of a suite of reports that discuss appropriations for the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) for FY2017 [Fiscal Year 2017]. It specifically discusses appropriations for the components of DHS included in the second title of the homeland security appropriations bill-Customs and Border Protection, Immigration and Customs Enforcement, the Transportation Security Administration, the U.S. Coast Guard, and the U.S. Secret Service. Collectively, Congress has labeled these components in recent years as 'Security, Enforcement, and Investigations'. The report provides an overview of the Administration's FY2017 request for these components, and the appropriations proposed by the Senate and House appropriations committees in response. Rather than limiting the scope of its review to the first titles of the bills, the report includes information on provisions throughout the bills and reports that directly affect these components. Security, Enforcement, and Investigations is the largest of the four titles that carry the bulk of the funding in the bill. The Administration requested $32.27 billion for these components in FY2017, $797 million less than was provided for FY2016 [Fiscal Year 2016]. The amount requested for these components is 68% of the Administration's $47.7 billion request in net discretionary budget authority and disaster relief funding for DHS. The largest budget increase proposed in the request for these components was a $625 million (5.7%) increase for U.S. Customs and Border Protection, while the largest budget decrease proposed was a $745 million (15.3%) reduction in the budget for the Transportation Security Administration, which was proposed to be replaced with an $880 million increase in fee collections."
