McCaul: Policy Changes Required Before Border Funding Approved

(Undated) -- The chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee says policy changes must be made before Congress approves a presidential border funding request. Republican Mike McCaul of Texas told "Fox News Sunday" one change would be updating the 2008 anti-trafficking law. The legislation makes it harder to deport children who are from countries other than Mexico or Canada. McCaul also said any emergency funding would probably end September 30th. That's when the current fiscal year ends.
McCaul says Republican lawmakers are also thinking of including his border-security bill in those required changes. The bill requires Homeland Security to come up with a five-year plan that ensures at least 90 percent of people who cross the border illegally are caught.
