- Biden administration asked for billions of dollars to pay for the resettlement of Afghan refugees and to address natural disaster damage
- White House asked for $6.4 billion to pay for relocation of thousands of refugees
- Also $24 billion in disaster relief after Hurricane Ida and other storms
- White House also asked for a short-term extension to fund the government so that there isn’t a shutdown on October 1
President Joe Biden’s administration sent an urgent funding request to Congress for billions of dollars to pay for the resettlement of Afghan refugees and to address natural disaster damage.
The White House asked for $6.4 billion to pay for relocation of tens of thousands of refugees as well as $24 billion in disaster relief – $14 billion in aid to respond to natural disasters that occurred before Hurricane Ida (such as the Western wildfires) and then $10 billion specifically for Hurricane Ida relief as well.
The request for more funding for Afghanistan refugees will likely spark political controversy given that some Democrats and many Republicans have criticized Biden handling of the evacuation.
