    SECURING OUR BORDERS: This legislation maintains funding we need to enforce our immigration laws, secure our borders, and build the wall.

  • The legislation enables more than the $8.6 billion amount included in the budget request to be dedicated for the President's border wall, including nearly $1.4 billion in direct funding.

  • The President secured full funding to continue the fight against the opioid epidemic.
  • The legislation provides $1.7 billion for mental health programs in the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration.
  • The President continued to stand up for the sanctity of life by defeating Democrat provisions that would have supported abortion and black-listed pro-life organizations.

  • The legislation supports President Trump's workforce development efforts by fully funding the President's apprenticeship initiative.
  • The President's Women's Global Development and Prosperity Fund was funded at $100 million and the Development Finance Corporation was funded at $301 million.
