Budget Cuts, Immigration And Border Control
A top general says federal budget cuts that will ground one-third of the U.S. Air Force's active-duty force of combat planes including fighters and bombers means "accepting the risk that combat airpower may not be ready to respond immediately to new contingencies as they occur. As the Pentagon braces for more effects of the automatic spending cuts triggered by the lack of a budget agreement in Washington, Virginia Congressman Morgan Griffith says that Obama’s budget offers cuts in the wrong areas. Only units preparing to deploy to major operations will remain mission-ready while other units would stand down on a rotating basis. For those affected units, the Air Force says it will shift its focus to ground training. Griffith goes on to say that making it easier to migrate and securing the border will help. (bg)
