HHS Agency Tangles on the Border

The White House today will unveil an emergency spending request to primarily address a child migration crisis on the southern border. The current deluge of unaccompanied children at the border is largely portrayed in the media as an immigration enforcement policy crisis, but the issue also impacts programs and spending for a quiet branch of the Department of Health and Human Services, the Administration for Children and Families (ACF).

The agency, which handles refugee assistance programs, has avoided the spotlight in long-running HHS policy battles such as the 2010 health care overhaul, medical research priorities, and the FDA drug approval process.

The White House supplemental spending request will likely seek funding for additional border control efforts and ACF children’s care and treatment services.

Additionally, Georgia Republican Rep. Phil Gingrey on Monday requested an update on CDC disease monitoring activities at the border.

HHS Secretary Sylvia Mathews Burwell and ACF officials join Homeland Security and State Department witnesses at several committee hearings this week.
