The Department of Homeland Security is requesting an additional $3 billion to deal with the impending onslaught of migrants as Title 42 is slated to end December 21. 

That is on top of the $56.7 billion President Biden requested to be included in the fiscal year 2023 spending bill Congress is currently negotiating for the department (DHS).

Senior DHS officials told NBC News they put the request for further funding to the White House Office of Management and Budget and the White House has now taken it to Congress. 

Republicans may be hesitant to approve the new funds as they have said they want to see stricter border security before pouring in more money.
