US federal budget request allocates more resources to TSA

13 February 2018

The fiscal year 2019 (FY 2019) budget request from the Trump Administration includes USD47.5 million for the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), a 7.8% increase on the USD44.06 proposed in FY 2018.

A document issued by the DHS described an “increased emphasis” on border security, immigration enforcement, and cybersecurity.

Pending approval by Congress, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) would receive 1.9% extra funding with a total of USD7.73 billion while Customs and Border Protection (CBP) funding would increase by 2.2% to USD16.69 billion.

For aviation security, the FY 2019 budget request includes USD3.2 billion on employing 687 TSA screeners to “maintain efficient passenger screening at airport checkpoints”.
