DOJ Budget Request Calls for Immigrant Detention Funds

The President released his $22.7 billion budget proposal for the Department of Justice in Fiscal Year 2009. Among the highlights is this funding for the Office of the Federal Detention Trustee (OFDT):

Detainee Housing and Transportation: $37.6 million to accommodate an
anticipated increase in the number of detainees housed in non-federal
facilities. These resources will be utilized to fund the costs associated
with prisoner detention, care and transportation of detainees along the
Southwest Border.
