This move is aimed at solving the humanitarian crisis occurring on the southern border, which sees thousands of Central American children and teenagers trying to cross into the U.S every year.
This funding would also provide funds to ensure these unaccompanied children are taken care of. The Obama administration has warned that if this request is not approved, border security funds would dry up this summer.
