Abstract: 
The 1992 budget request for international enforcement has fared well. President Bush has not relinquished the continued emphasis on the federal war on drugs and crime. As part of the $10.6 billion budget for the Department of Justice, increases are requested for international organized crime. Immigration-related, environmental enforcement, and white collar crime also did well. The Customs Service budget has also been proposed for an increase, motivated mostly by the drug war. The Securities and Exchange Commission's budget will also increase, in part to host a meeting of the International Organization of Securities Commission (IOSCO).
