Border Tension

-
(NBC News)  Congress returns to work Monday, with just four weeks before their next break to deal with the immigration crisis at the border. 

They'll face a new request from President Obama: $2 billion in emergency funds to deal with the crisis.

By year's end 90,000 unaccompanied children are expected to arrive in the United States from Central America. 

The administration is looking for options on dealing with them.

Lawmakers have offered two solutions: Increase penalties for smugglers or hire 6,000 agents and add more fencing and cameras at the border.
