Democrats don’t want to fund Trump’s wall. They’ve fought tooth & nail against it. A wall would make it more difficult to enter the country illegally, no matter what political party holds the reigns of power in the future. A wall would be a “permanent” deterrent to illegal border crossers and criminal cartels which funnel drugs into the country.
President Trump is only asking for $5 billion. It’s only a portion of what’s needed to build the entire wall, but it’s a good start. Democrats won’t budge, though. Dems want illegal immigration. Those who enter illegally are future voters in their minds. That’s why they set up sanctuary cities, and are even allowing illegals to vote in school board races in some areas.
Dems won’t give Trump the $5 billion he wants for the wall, yet now the US is giving $10 billion to countries south of us.
The Associated Press is reporting:
“The United States pledged $5.8 billion in aid and investment Tuesday for strengthening government and economic development in Central America, and another $4.8 billion in development aid for southern Mexico.
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 plan was announced in a joint U.S.-Mexican statement released by the State Department and read aloud by Mexican Foreign Relations Secretary Marcelo Ebrard in the Mexican capital.
“In sum I think this is good news, very good news for Mexico,” Ebrard said.
Newly inaugurated President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador waxed poetic about the plan to provide jobs so people won’t have to emigrate.
“I have a dream that I want to see become a reality … that nobody will want to go work in the United States anymore,” Lopez Obrador said at a morning news conference before the announcement.
