State Dept. Suspends $200 Million Enhanced Aid for El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras Pending Illegal Migration Enforcement…

While previously pledged support for the Northern Triangle region related to Homeland Security and combating organized crime will continue, the State Department suspends any further financial assistance ($200 million) until the migration crisis is resolved.

.

[Transcript at 01:28] “Next, I have a quick update for you on U.S. foreign assistance to the Northern Triangle countries of El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras. As you know, in March, the President concluded these countries have not effectively prevented illegal migrants from coming to the United States.”

“At the Secretary’s instruction, we continue to implement the President’s direction regarding foreign assistance for El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras. We completed a review, and previously awarded grants and contracts will continue with current funding. State Department assistance in support of priorities of the Departments of Justice and Homeland Security priorities to help the Northern Triangle governments take actions that will protect the U.S. border and counter transnational organized crime will also continue.

We will not provide new funds for programs in those countries until we are satisfied the Northern Triangle governments are taking concrete actions to reduce the number of illegal migrants coming to the U.S. border.

Working with Congress, we will reprogram those funds to other priorities as appropriate. This is consistent with the President’s direction and with the recognition that it is critical that there be sufficient political will in these countries to address the problem at its source. As Secretary Pompeo has said, these nations have the responsibility to take care of the immigration problems in their home country.”  (continue reading transcript)

    Democrats are encouraging this behavior, funding it, and making it lucrative for the criminals smuggling them here.

    If it is SO BAD there, how do they save up the thousands of dollars they pay the coyotes to smuggle them here, lol?

    I smell liberal funding.

      Suspending sounds like they will not actually stop the forgiven aid. The good People of the USA should hear that our Govt. has STOPPED all aid, and should use that money to send the illegals back. Sounds like a plan with a payback.

        Project 1 was under 8 million. So that would be ~25 miles (for 200 million) for WeBuildTheWall, going up an impossibly steep hill.

        – They spent about 2 million just moving the 2 mountains and smoothing out the grade on the slope.
        – On the lower part of the hill they used 6 excavators. On the steeper part they used 4 excavators and didn’t fully stack the hanger with panels due to load concerns on the slope.
        – If the project is big enough Fisher is willing to increase it to 30 excavators.

        I don’t remember the latest figure but I seem to recall Fisher Industries can build 1 mile for about 3-4 million on the flat.

        So if you release them on the flat, they’ll put in between 50 and 67 miles for 200 million dollars.

      When do we get to make the other countries in the world to start paying for their own citizens.

      It will take many, many years to clean up the mess these countries have created in our country.

      These illegals have done so much damage not just the last few years but the last few decades.

      We now have diseases that will need to be eradicated from our communities, again, that we had pretty much not seen here in the U.S. in decades.

      The crime and violence in so many neighborhoods that the vicious drug cartels brought into our country will take billions of dollars to clean up.

      I imagine that a lot of treepers here could add to this list.

      And the misery and suffering from the crimes of robberies, beatings, rapes, tortures and murders at the hands of illegals is heartbreaking.

      So even when we stop the invasion of illegals, we have years and years of hard work ahead of us and billions if not trillions of dollars needed.

      So yes, I believe these countries owe us and OWE US BIG.

            There are other ways to clean up their messes – but, from their perspective, why not utilize the cheap and easy method of sending them here where they are openly welcomed?

      These “donor” nations from whom the US receives people should be considered target-rich mission fields by the Christian churches, Christian organizations, and Christians individually. Considering the exchange rates, we can do a lot of work for not so large amounts of strictly private money.

      Several months ago when I first felt led to send money for use by a Christian ministry in Venezuela I could not locate an active formal mission organization that seemed right by doing an internet search. When I called a ministry up here that has home fellowships in other countries, they had only one name for an evangelical minister but no home fellowships in Venezuela. Since that time, I have been sending my tithe to that husband and wife ministry team. They have developed a group of volunteers who help them host luncheon events in schools, churches, and other venues. They deliver messages from scripture, feed the people hot meals, do face painting for the children, and often give the boys and men free professional haircuts. Recently, one of their team members was falsely jailed for a week. He packed up his Bible and 20 containers of food from the next luncheon event then went right back to the same jail where he had been held.

      No one gets a salary off this. The ministers do this on the side and separately from the church where they are on staff. This bypasses both governments. There is no large organizational structure. The lead time for these events is measured in days, not years. There is no leakage or shrinkage.

      The way I read my Bible, I am individually responsible as a Christian to take care of the needy. The US Constitution does not state that requirement. Paganism is rampant in Central and South America. The Islamists are establishing toe-holds too. Addressing the spiritual needs south of us will go farther to end the chaos than any program that runs through two governments.

      All IMHO.

        You’re right. I’ve spent some time investigating this very subject. Old documents are our friend.

        Charity and compassion are the job of private individuals. Compassion never causes harm to others. It’s voluntary. It can’t be accomplished by force. If it requires government force, it’s about political power, and when under circumstances that create conflict, violence and chaos to overburden citizens and systems, it’s a political method to undermine and overthrow established government. Nothing new under the sun.

        Government has no agency (defined as a person’s capacity to think or act, as an expression of individual power) for charity or mercy. Government’s capacity requires it to always, within the established context of its granted powers, place the best interest of its citizens above all other considerations.   

        It’s the responsibility of foreign governments to do the same. It is immoral for government to assume another country’s responsibilities to its general citizenry and to not uphold its primary duty to its own citizens.

        The Bill of Rights does not grant anyone, including legal or illegal immigrants, the right to break our laws, to cause harm or burden to citizens/legal aliens or to undermine government, culture or society. Aliens have no “right” to enter and no “right” to remain, when in violation of law.

        Congress is required to provide and uphold a legal and orderly immigration process that protects citizens, resources and the Constitution. Congress’ duty is to stop all immigration or certain classes of incompatible or dangerous immigrants before it becomes harmful or sheer numbers impede legal immigrant assimilation.

        Despite Congress’ wanton misuse of the General Welfare Clause in the Preamble, it is not a “power”, but is part of the mission statement or charge that structures how the stated granted powers are to be used, first and foremost, for the benefit of its citizens. It doesn’t create new powers.

    These nations are cleansing their country of problematic and/or probably unemployed or sick citizens. The more that leave for the USA, and the more money these governments pocket for themselves.

    • Very interesting point Sunshine.

      Almost all of the illegals coming up from Mexico and Central America can barely read or write and can do very little basic math.

      They are pretty much unemployable even in their home country.

      As you mention the sick part, well we are seeing that for ourselves right now as our own Border Patrol agents are coming down with all kinds of nasty diseases.

      I agree, these countries are getting rid of the worst problems in their country.

      And until every single illegal is gone from our country none of these countries should get a dime from us.

      And very possible never, ever again.

    The people in Mexico are watching. AMLO flies commercial. He told the citizens that he would fund the enforcement agreement by selling the presidential jet.

    This is from Mexico News Daily. I get their headlines via email. I think I’ll subscribe.

    Police stop four semi-trailers carrying 782 migrants in Veracruz
    The detentions represent the first major action in Mexico’s new enforcement-focused immigration strategy…..

    I’m not blindly against foreign aid, but we should be giving out with a teaspoon and not with a shovel.

    The few instances where I have read good reporting on our foreign aid it’s been about how little goes to the people we mean to help and the bulk of the aid being diverted into the pockets of the people in power. Not only money but even food aid is held by the overlords where they use it to reward supporters and withhold food from opponents and detractors.

    • I agree H. R.

      I think that Americans are very generous and kind hearted and want very much to help the needy.

      But we have watched our country deliver many many decades of foreign aid, and how many starving little African children and adults are there?

      With all of the money we have poured down the black hole of foreign aid most every one on the planet should at least be fed.

      Maybe not overly well fed, but fed.

      And I have watched the countries in South America swing back and forth between doing OK to sliding into semi-starvation in only about 20 years.

      Over and over and over it goes.

      And now when these countries are sending all of their sick, uneducated and criminal citizens across our border illegally, well it is now time to cut off the American Sugar Daddy that they all take for granted.

    “State Department suspends any further financial assistance ($200 million) until the migration crisis is resolved.”

    According to the chart above, 676,255 illegal immigrants have arrived at our borders this year.

    That works out to $296 per illegal immigrant.

    President Trump should stop funds to those countries equal to their total costs to America plus a penalty amount that is double the total costs. Total cost, including penalties, to those countries is triple their cost to America.
    That should include administration, lodging, food, policing, health care, transportation, court costs, arraignment costs just for those illegal immigrants caught at the border.

    Costs for illegal immigrants caught after they entered America should include damages for criminal acts, police, court and prison costs if necessary, health care, job losses to Americans, translation costs across America, etc.; plus the border costs above.

    Frankly, every illegal immigrant should have to reimburse America for all of their criminal actions. Billions of dollars just begins to cover the damages 676,255 illegal immigrants have caused this year.

    Congresses inaction and procrastination regarding the immigration at the southern border will go down in history as one of the greatest assaults on the American populace economic future imaginable including ANY past war. By simply doing NOTHING they have encouraged the liberal elite, both domestic and foreign, to fund and encourage the abuse of third world populations to infiltrate, dilute and invade the American culture and physical landscape putting an extreme financial burden on the American citizens and local governments. That said, the unimaginable life lost to these immigrants, their intolerable conditions endured, their families sorrow and extortion for monies by cartels is extraordinary. While these people in Congress and the liberal elites set behind their domestic walls for protection from this massive invasion and influx, they salivate at the prospect of cheap labor, changing the demographics to vote their ideology and changing America FOREVER! How can anyone get behind such people who’s motives only seek to benefit the themselves.

    Keep going VSGPDJT. Don’t stop till you get to Panama!

    These governments aren’t part of the problem, they are the problem. One million people can no more “walk” through Mexico than Osama Bin Laden could live rent free in Afghanistan.

    Starting with Panama, all of these governments aid, abet, assist, and profit massively off the migrant invasion. NONE of them are impotent bystanders.

    https://www.libertyheadlines.com/central-american-controlled-flow/

    As others have noted, these governments and their ruling elites have vested interests in thinning out the ranks of their poor and undesirables, while reaping the multi-billions in remittances. Every year, $50B free US dollars are transferred to Central America. $30B to Mexico alone.

    For Mexico, that’s a guaranteed $30B annual economic stimulus package, literally free money, pumped 100% into the Mexican economy for consumer goods and services: Nike, Coke, Toyota, Carlos Slim’s cell phones, etc.

    The money flows from the busboy in El Paso to his sick mother in Oaxaca to her local pharmacy to Johnson&Johnson Mexico, transferring a piece of every dollar he sends back to his Mom as revenue to the mutlinationals, taxes for the Mexican government and growth for its ruling elites.

    From their POV, this massive free revenue generator is subsidized by the US footing $115+B annual bill, for “public education, medical care, justice enforcement initiatives, welfare programs, etc.” They supply the illegals, we pay the costs, they take in the money.

    These governments are 100% incentivized to get as many migrants into into the US as fast as they can. Why wouldn’t they do everything in their power to keep the migrants flowing – and grow the annual remittance?

    This month’s 1M border crossers are next month’s housekeepers, gardeners, and guys in front of Home Depot, working long hours for US dollars destined for corporate profits and the Mexican Treasury.

    I don’t know how this can be stopped, except at the source. If we don’t take the fight to these governments, and break the back of the migrant machine, nothing will change. The problem I’ve always had with the Wall is, if we wait until millions show up at the front door, it’s already too late.

    Mexico had its chance to pay for the Wall and said no. Fine. Now they’re paying tariffs. Who’s next?

    Good to have a VSG doing what should have been done long ago.
