Earlier this week, President Trump threatened to stop giving aid to countries that send us illegal aliens during a talk to the National Federation of Independent Businesses.
“We want to end the border crisis by finally giving us the legal authorities and the resources to detain and remove illegal immigrant families altogether and bring them back to their country. We have to bring them back to their country.
Now think of all that aid that we give some of these countries, hundreds of millions of dollars we give to some of these countries, and they send them up.
Well I’m going to go, very shortly, for authorization that when countries abuse us by sending their people up, not their best, we’re not going to give anymore aid to those countries. Why the hell should we? Why should we?”
Why should we indeed. After a quick check up from the official USAID website we are giving hundreds of millions of dollars to countries who are doing nothing to stop this. Here’s just a couple to get your blood boiling:
Note that 2017 and 2018 are only partially reported years so the data above comes from the last fully reported year which was 2016. Pull all the money. Put it toward the wall. Insanity to continue to fund countries that are blatantly against our own interests. I’ll probably do a longer post on this in regards to all the countries we’re giving aid that do not align with our interests at all.
