The push for greater security along the border with Canada is getting some traction on Capitol Hill that’s likely to lead to more boots — and technology — on the ground in Michigan.
Included in the 2012 appropriations plan for the Department of Homeland Security that was put forward by the U.S. House is $500 million — a rare $10 million boost in an otherwise austere era on Capitol Hill — for “border security fencing, infrastructure, and technology.”
It comes with the strongest caveat to date in favor of beefing up homeland security spending along the border with Canada: a mandate the money is spent in a way that helps achieve “operational control of the Northern and Southwest borders of the United States.”
