WASHINGTON –– The FBI would get an additional $219 million for national security and $19 million to hire dozens of new agents to fight crime on American Indian reservations under the President’s $3.8 trillion budget proposal, according to the Washington Post.

Under the proposed budget, the Post reports that the Department of Homeland Security would get a 4 percent hike in its total budget, which would include: $200 million to pay state and local costs to hold terrorism-related trials; $950 million for federal air marshals and $734 million for whole-body imaging scanners at airports.
