The President signed two bills Friday that would dramatically increase funding for the border wall and boost funding for a program to train Border Patrol agents.
Trump signed the $1.8 billion Border Security Improvements, Enforcement Improvements, and Job Creation Act into law at the White House, signing the legislation into law a day after it was passed by the Senate.
The bill would increase the amount of money for border security measures by $3.5 billion, increasing the border patrol’s budget by $2.2 billion, and increasing funding for border enforcement and hiring by $1 billion.
The legislation also would establish a task force that would train Border Protection agents on the use of technology to help them better enforce immigration laws.
It also would provide funding for $20 million in funding for training and equipment for border patrol agents to use electronic detection systems to assist with illegal border crossings.
In addition, Trump signed two other bills that were introduced by Democrats.
One would provide $200 million to the Department of Homeland Security to improve security on the southern border.
The other would provide funds to the Customs and Border Protection agency to expand and improve Border Patrol facilities and training to better assist with the enforcement of immigration laws and enforce the nation’s immigration laws, including the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.
The DREAM Act was passed in 2012 as part of a bipartisan deal to reform the Deficit Reduction Act of 2005.
The Dream Act would grant legal status to young people who were brought to the United States as children and who were not deported, and would grant them work permits that allow them to work and study in the United Kingdom and other European nations.
Both bills were passed on Friday.
The Trump administration has been criticized by some conservatives for its actions in the aftermath of the shooting at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Florida, on June 12.
Trump announced the executive actions at the Department the White, and the administration has since sought to distance itself from the shooting and its aftermath.
The President also signed two orders, one to protect the nation from terrorism and the other to provide more resources to states and localities to help reduce opioid overdose deaths and opioid deaths, both of which are associated with the opioid epidemic.
The opioid epidemic is killing more Americans than the Vietnam War.
A new analysis from the University of Pennsylvania found that the opioid crisis has been the worst health care crisis of the modern era.
The study found that more than 10 million Americans were dying from opioid overdoses in 2016, and nearly half of those deaths were linked to prescription painkillers.
The president’s opioid executive actions also include funding for state and local governments to address the opioid overdose crisis and funding for local police departments to help combat the opioid abuse epidemic.
The president also signed the first-ever National Flood Insurance Program.
The National Flood Risk Protection Act of 2015 was the largest flood insurance program in the country at the time of its passage.
It was the first flood insurance legislation in the U.S. to provide flood insurance to households with less than $1,000 in annual income.
The law also provided flood insurance for more than 6 million homeowners and renters.
