President Obama is asking Congress for $3.7 billion to deal with the flood of illegal immigrants, many of them children, coming across the country’s southern border. The money would go toward more border patrol agents, human resources like food and shelter for the children, and to speed up processing them in the court system. Some Republicans in Congress oppose the idea, saying it is too much money and is not needed.
Should Congress approve the extra money to deal with the influx of children crossing the border?

Should the Two Elk power plant be canceled and the permits withdrawn?
Yes, withdraw the permits
No, keep the permits in place
