Budgetary Impact Analysis for Executive Order Entitled “Enhancing Public Safety in the Interior of the United States”
Statement from Acting OMB Director Mark Sandy:
This executive order directs the Departments of Homeland Security, Justice, and State to take steps to enhance the security of our communities, including by prioritizing the removal of aliens who engage in criminal or other misconduct and hiring additional immigration officers. Implementing this executive order is anticipated to increase costs compared to Fiscal Year (FY) 2016 for these purposes, and have no effect on revenues to the Federal Government. Implementing this executive order is anticipated to have no impact on mandatory obligations and outlays, and to increase discretionary obligations and outlays for these purposes. This executive order is not, however, anticipated to increase discretionary obligations and outlays overall, and the impact beyond FY 2017 will depend on the annual appropriations process. The agencies anticipated to be impacted by this executive order include the Departments of Homeland Security, Justice, and State; and the Executive Office of the President.
