Re: tariffs: it appears from today's report that tariffs (not broken out by country) have increased by $2.2B from the previous Oct.
Another note re: @ICEgov, spending on "Immigration and Customs Enforcement" went DOWN (negligibly) when compared to last October. From $641M (in a month!) to $638M.— Arizona's Politics (@AZs_Politics) November 13, 2019
