With Director of Homeland Security Tom Ridge, Secretary of Transportation Norman Mineta, and a contingent of Coast Guard personnel standing behind him, President Bush delivered a Speech announcing that he intends to seek major budget increases to fund homeland security. The budget proposal to be submitted to Congress will seek $38 billion for homeland security, of which $11 billion would be devoted to controlling the U.S. borders.
