The proposed budget for fiscal year 2018 from the U.S. House of Representatives includes money for the Legal Services Corporation but cuts its funding by 24 percent, the ABA Journal reports. It is a departure from the Trump administration’s budget, which slashes LSC funding entirely. The House budget also includes big increases in funding for immigration enforcement, with a $64.5 million hike for the Executive Office for Immigration Review and an extra $82 million for the U.S. Marshals Service to support an increased detainee population.
