And the rich Americans are eager to provide for your every need and WANT !!!
That goes without saying.
While American remain homeless, people’s lives devastated by natural disasters struggle, veterans remain with out care but by all means we need to take care of the people who hate their current lives and migrate here as they have a right.
So when do true Americans wake up ? Even the republicans keep kicking the can down the road , compromise after compromise refusing to do their job !!!
Like Pearl Harbor, probably too late.
Largely for personal gain of the ruling elite.
So corruption then .
Tell me it isn’t so. I’m shocked, corruption in Mexico, Central , South American governments??
Oh I forgot corruption in the US government???
Er, no. Promise aid in an amount that makes them drool.
Then, send an itemized bill deducting all that illegals cost us. Create a list with names and expensed tied to each person.
Hand a check over for $4.23 in foreign aid.
While the guy who works two jobs to make ends meet cannot meet his insurance deductible, what deductible do illegals have to meet for medical care?
I like this idea…
Medicaid has no deductible.
Option 2. Go to the ER give a false name and disappear,’
The Emergency Medical Treatment and Active Labor Act ( EMTALA ) is an act of the United States Congress, passed in 1986 as part of the Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act (COBRA). It requires hospital Emergency Departments that accept payments from Medicare to provide an appropriate medical screening examination (MSE) to anyone seeking treatment for a medical condition , regardless of citizenship, legal status, or ability to pay. Participating hospitals may not transfer or discharge patients needing emergency treatment except with the informed consent or stabilization of the patient or when their condition requires transfer to a hospital better equipped to administer the treatment.
Yep, we need more people like him.
Your claim was:
In the last ten years we gave over 1 billion in aid to Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador only to fuel more violence and corruption . They are money pits !
That isn’t the purpose for said funds and you can’t show that, that is what it’s being used for.
Unfortunately most of the governments to our south are incredibly corrupt and always have been. We used to joke about the because they were basically in a constant state of revolution for about a hundred years.
The US appetite for illicit drugs fuels and funds the violence down there.
When we declared “The War on Drugs” there was some hope we were serious about it and would act accordingly but of course, the politicians chickened out again when push came to shove and continue to.
WE The People are a huge part of the problem because it’s our predilection for addiction that is overwhelmingly driving the violence down there, not the funding we , as a government, give them to combat it.
Ending 10 billion to Mexico and Central America is like giving the migrants 50K each to go home, a joke and it’s on the taxpayers and the legal citizens of the US.
“A 2015 investigation by Honduran newspaper La Prensa found that Salvadorans and Hondurans pay an estimated $390 million, $200 million, and $61 million, respectively, in annual extortion fees to organized crime groups. Extortionists primarily target public transportation operators, small businesses, and residents of poor neighborhoods, according to the report, and attacks on people who do not pay contribute to the violence.” The region remains menaced by corruption, drug trafficking, and gang violence despite tough police and judicial reforms. While the United States has provided the three governments billions of dollars in aid over the past decade, some analysts believe U.S. immigration policies have exacerbated threats to regional security.
“Although Central Americans have long suspected the presence of state corruption at the highest levels, recent revelations show the staggering scope and scale of illicit dealings. Corruption presents a fundamental challenge to democratic governance and the rule of law in a region already beset by astonishing levels of violence. This challenge is well understood by U.S. authorities, who see Central America as vital to the security of the United States, which has provided over $800 million in security assistance to the region since 2008. Funneling more resources in to Central American security efforts cannot work in the absence of domestic political leaderships committed to doing things honestly and efficiently.
n both Guatemala and Honduras, corruption has infected not just isolated agencies but the entire executive, legislative, and judicial branches. As these nations struggle with faltering health and security systems and soaring levels of poverty, officials ransack government funds, stealing as much as the entire annual budgets of some ministries. Far from guaranteeing citizen wellbeing, the Guatemalan and Honduran states are little more than sites for official personal enrichment.”
So now 200,000, will get $50,000 each , yet we can’t spare 5 billion for the wall so we hand over 10 billion and continue to watch the caravans pour into our Country at a record pace !!!
Will ANY amount of aid stop the illegals from pouring in ???

MEXICO CITY (AP) — The United States pledged $5.8 billion in aid and investment Tuesday for strengthening government and economic development in Central America, and another $4.8 billion in development aid for southern Mexico.
The U.S aid aims to promote better security conditions and job opportunities as part of a regional plan to allow Central Americans and Mexicans to remain in their countries and not have to emigrate.
That is exactly correct.
We will snd more money into the black hole south of the border and hope the caravans slow. This is how our democrat party works.
Which in no way supports your claim that our tax dollars are fueling the crime/violence.
The dollars we send down there for the most part are for aid to the military and police whom work constantly with the US Military, DEA, and FBI combating the cartels for whom the thugs work.
