That's what it's for. I should have been more clear.

"As part of the Administration's plan for the border wall, the FY 2019 Presidentís Budget proposes $1.6 billion to support the construction of 65 miles of border wall system in one of the U.S. Border Patrolís top priority areas of responsibility, the Rio Grande Valley (RGV) Sector, in southern Texas. These priority investments will have the greatest impact on gaining and maintaining operational control of the border in the RGV Sector.

In addition, the FY 2019 Presidentís Budget proposes an additional $211 million to support efforts to recruit, hire, and train 750 new Border Patrol Agents. CBP remains committed to fully implementing the directives in E.O. 13767 to strengthen border security and enhance public safety in communities across the United States. "
