As Hurricane Season Beings, Trump Transfers FEMA Funds To ICE

The Trump administration plans to shift at least $155 million from the Federal Emergency Management Agency.

CNN reports the money will be moved from FEMA's disaster relief fund to ICE, to support returning some migrants to Mexico.

The Department of Homeland Security is transferring $271 million in total to its immigration enforcement agency from elsewhere in the department.

Last week, the Trump administration announced its intention to hold migrant families indefinitely.
