The caravans are not “pouring in” they have been stopped at the border.
The money is going to those gov’ts to first, cut down to the greatest extent possible the number of people fleeing the triangle and second to Mexico to stop them before they reach the US border.
If it works, it’s money well spent.
Even if we get our needed sections of border wall we still need to do all we can to stop or reduce to the greatest extent possible the number of asylum seekers/illegals reaching our border.
Detentions and deportations were both up last year and 90% of the illegals caught by the BP/ICE had prior criminal records. For the most part we’re not talking about nice guys and gals coming to the US just looking for a better life for their families they are criminals intent on getting here and committing more crimes.
The best way to stop them is to do it before they ever reach US soil. “The Wall” is but one needed step towards securing the border but hundreds of thousands will just attempt to circumvent it and many will succeed so again, stopping them before they ever reach US soil is by far the best plan and we need those governments to cooperate with the US to accomplish it.
