Obama said the $3.7 billion in emergency spending

Obama said the $3.7 billion in emergency spending would help the government deal with the flood of unaccompanied child immigrants crossing the border in South Texas. Some of the money would go to help fund about 40 additional immigration judge teams.

Federal immigration courts have a backlog of more than 375,000 cases. It can often take several years for an immigrant to receive a final ruling.

Republicans have balked at the size of Obama's spending request, arguing that he needs to do more to secure the border and do more to stop immigrant children from making the trip from Central America in the first place.
