U.S. Government Won’t Fund Border Wall, But Look At The Obscene Amount Of Aid Being Sent To Mexico, Central America.

The U.S. State Department made an announcement on Tuesday that they are sending a whopping $10.6 billion in aid to southern Mexico and another $5.8 billion in aid to Central America.

Yet, according to the government, the $5 billion President Trump needs to build the border wall is just nowhere to be found.

Something is very wrong with this picture, wouldn’t you agree?

“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,” The Associated Press reported. “The combination of public and private investment for the stay-at-home effort doesn’t require congressional approval, unlike Trump’s signature project to stem illegal immigration — a border wall.”

“In sum, I think this is good news, very good news for Mexico,” Mexican Foreign Relations Secretary Marcelo Ebrard said from Mexico’s capital.

Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador weighed in on the plan at a morning press conference before the announcement was made, saying: “I have a dream that I want to see become a reality … that nobody will want to go work in the United States anymore.”

“The U.S. and #Mexico are announcing our intent to take a holistic & coordinated approach to stem illegal migration. Today we announced our commitment to promote a safer & more prosperous Central America and southern Mexico by enhancing security, governance, & economic prosperity,” State Department Deputy Spokesperson Robert Palladino wrote on Twitter. “The U.S. is committing to increase the project pipeline for @opicgov if commercially viable projects are identified in Southern Mexico & Northern Triangle. We will also review available financing mechanisms & tools, incl. private sector, multilateral banks, & regional partners.”

“In Jan. 2019, we are forming a joint task force and will hold a cabinet-level meeting to align our strategies,” Palladino added. “We will co-host a private sector business summit in early 2019 as well. We applaud #Mexico’s announcement of an unprecedented development program for the region.”

This announcement comes hot on the heels of the Trump administration signaling that they were going to back off demands for the new budget funding the government to include the money necessary to complete the wall along the southern border.

Look, all we have to do to get the funding for the wall is cut the obscenely large amount of dough we’re shipping off to Mexico and use that money to secure the border. Boom. Problem solved.

It seems absurd and illogical to fund a country that is doing next to nothing to keep it’s own people from crossing the border illegally. Truth be told, they want to get rid of their own problem citizens and are saying “good riddance” when they come here. That shouldn’t fly.

We must secure the border in order to prevent dangerous criminals from entering the country and harming our citizens. A large percentage of those coming here also want to take advantage of our welfare system, depleting our resources. This must be brought to an end, and the border wall will help with that.
