President Donald Trump unveiled his 2018 budget this week, which proposes a $52 billion increase in defense spending and an additional $2.6 billion to build a border wall between the United States and Mexico.

His budget also calls for $1.5 billion “for expanded detention, transportation, and removal of illegal immigrants.”

To offset these spending increases, the president is proposing drastic cuts in a number of agencies including a 31.4 percent cut to the Environmental Protection Agency, a 28.7 percent cut to the State Department and other international programs, and a 20.7 percent cut to both Departments of Agriculture and Labor.

Here’s a full list of the agencies impacted by Trump’s plan. Hover over the bars to see how much the proposed cuts or increases would be.

Trump is also proposing the elimination of 19 independent commissions and agencies whose budgets totaled $3 billion in 2016.

These include the Corporation for National and Community Service, Corporation for Public Broadcasting, the Legal Services Corporation, and the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
