One of the few times I agree with Chuckie. Obama has also kept the FBI and other agencies from profiling the Islamic aspect of terrorism.
Sen. Chuck Schumer blasted a proposed $300 million cut to anti-terror funding in President Obama’s budget.
Obama’s proposed spending plan for fiscal year 2017 would slash the Urban Area Security Initiative, which gives counter-terror funds to New York and other cities, from $600 million to $330 million, the senator said.
“In light of recent attacks in Paris and San Bernardino, and the vow by our extremist enemies to launch more attacks on our shores, it makes no sense for bureaucrats in Washington to propose cuts to vital terror-prevention programs like UASI,” said Schumer (D-NY).
“These proposed cuts are ill-advised and ill-timed and they must be reversed. End of story,” he said. “With ISIS-inspired attacks and terrorism on the rise all across the globe, we must make sure that America has the resources it needs to remain protected.”
