Att: Dee and Melony,

Check out this great video on immigration and world poverty.

you are right; very worth watching.

I must admit, when the first bits of political speeches regarding globally helping other countries that had so much poverty were starting up in the media, I thought that meant that we would help them develop their own economies and kind of like the peace corps etc. - go teach them irrigation and planting crops and managing their own lives and governments and start their own corporations (not owned by other companies/multi-nationals via pay-offs to crooked individuals inserted into governments to allow further poverty of the whole for the gains of a few); and then it was up to them to grow their own countries as they saw fit.  It was mediatized as a good thing to do. 

He is right -  other countries' poverty will be solved much more efficiently by helping them in their own countries.  I think those "aide" packages we give some countries should be given with a few more strings attached; i.e. - 85% must go to actual salaries of citizens in those countries; not kept by a few and their cronies to become individually wealthy.

 

 

I would like a moratorium on foreign aid and our borders secured before we consider any assistance to those in need outside our country.  We have enough people with genuine needs right here in America that we do not have to adopt other countries problems.  Deport the people who have entered this country illegally.

This is not about compassion or charity it is about the survival of America.

 President Trump Threatens To Close Southern Border 

President Trump issued a blunt warning to Mexico and other Central American nations over their failure to stop illegal migrants and criminal cartels targeting the U.S. southern border, saying he would send the military and shut down the southern border. Trump made his threat in tweet storm Thursday morning in which he said the newly negotiated trade deal with Mexico would take second place to border security.

Over 4,000 migrants are now reported to be in the caravan headed to the U.S.

A horde of thousands migrants from Honduras and other Central American countries on an organized to the U.S. are approaching the Mexican border. Mexico is reportedly sending federal police to stop them.

Over 16,000 illegal alien migrant family units were arrested at the southern border in September.

“I am watching the Democrat Party led (because they want Open Borders and existing weak laws) assault on our country by Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador, whose leaders are doing little to stop this large flow of people, INCLUDING MANY CRIMINALS, from entering Mexico to U.S…..

….In addition to stopping all payments to these countries, which seem to have almost no control over their population, I must, in the strongest of terms, ask Mexico to stop this onslaught – and if unable to do so I will call up the U.S. Military and CLOSE OUR SOUTHERN BORDER!..

….The assault on our country at our Southern Border, including the Criminal elements and DRUGS pouring in, is far more important to me, as President, than Trade or the USMCA. Hopefully Mexico will stop this onslaught at their Northern Border. All Democrats fault for weak laws!”
