ICE and Border Patrol are set to run out of money if Congress doesn’t approve a $3.7 billion request for emergency funds from President Obama, the Arizona Republic reports.

ICE expects to run out of money by mid-August, while Border Patrol said it could be penniless by mid-September.

Both agencies blame the border crisis on the funding shortage.
