(CNN) - The White House appears to be working toward border security.

On Monday, President Obama is set to ask for emergency funds from Congress.

According to an administration official, the money would be used for removal proceedings, increasing enforcement and the removal of unlawful immigrants.

The source says Obama could ask for more than $2 billion.

This comes following a rash of undocumented children and adults have been reported in the Rio Grande Valley areas and other parts of the southwest border.
