President Trump announced Monday morning he is starting the process to cut or reduce aid to Central American countries that haven't stopped a caravan of illegal aliens. Over the past few days, the caravan has grown from 4,000 people to 7,000.
Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador were not able to do the job of stopping people from leaving their country and coming illegally to the U.S. We will now begin cutting off, or substantially reducing, the massive foreign aid routinely given to them.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 22, 2018
Over the weekend, President Trump again threatened to seal off the border if Central American countries or Mexico couldn't control the flow north.
"I would call in the military and I would seal off the border. I would close up the border. If that happens, and if that continues to move forward, the caravan we’re talking about," Trump said. "I think some bad people started that caravan.. you have some very, very bad people in the caravan. But I will seal off the border before they come into this country."
In Mexico, authorities have failed to stop the massive caravan. Stretching one mile long, it has broken through borders, police lines and barricades. When the cameras are off, caravan members ditch the walking to grab rides on train and trucks.
During an interview with Fox News anchor Bret Baier on Friday, Mexican Ambassador Geronimo Gutierrez again argued Mexican immigration policy does not encourage illegal behavior and should be orderly.
President Trump is headed to Texas Monday afternoon and will campaign for Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) in Houston. There's no doubt the caravan will be a heavy topic during his remarks.
Apparently the ‘aid’ is not helping these countries anyway, since these people want to leave...
Good deal! I think we also ought to be reforming the citizen’s militia—circa 1775—and supplement the standing army and send us all down to the border. It’s an invasion. A premeditated invasion. No doubt about it.
He will be blamed of course for what lies ahead.
close the border! shoot to kill! Wash rinse, repeat!
Mexican Ambassador and Mexican Minister of Propaganda Geronimo Gutierrez again argued Mexican immigration policy does not encourage illegal behavior and should be orderly ...
“President Trump announced Monday morning he is starting the process to cut or reduce aid to Central American countries that haven’t stopped a caravan of illegal aliens...”
When will these dumba$$es learn, this isn’t the odunga administration.
You mess with this bull, you will get the horn!!
Thank you Mr. President!
Maybe now these third worlder’s will understand.
It's a yuge microwave oven that shoots a very focus-able beam. ZERO fatalities. You can make the beam narrow like a pencil, or fat like a pizza slice. Crowds INSTANTLY scatter and the heat is confined to the skin surface.
It feels like you just opened a hot oven.
It’s more about hurting the people in power, not the poor. I bet corruption is rampant down there.
Why give foreign aid to countries when all their people are here?
For every citizen of theirs that we encounter we should reduce or eliminate 100k of their aid.
A 50% tariff on all wire transfers to their country from the US.
50% tariff on all products from their country.................
Its not a Caravan. That Word makes it sound like a bunch of friendly circus entertainers are coming to town. This is a Hostile Invading Army.
He will be blamed of course for what lies ahead by the media and their mouthpieces, the Democrat party. However, he will be praised by the rest of us and re-elected in a landslide not seen since Reagan.
You don’t seriously think that “aid” in a third world hell hole filters down to the peasants anyway do you?
Put our military on the border now and really take time to set up the total destruction of the invaders. Use some lethal force if necessary. America is at the crossroads of survival or total failure.
SECURE THE BORDER
Should he just skip the steps and nuke southern Mexico, or some other goofy action because it’s more entertaining? Those people arent near the border yet, he has time to wring those nation’s necks before the main event.
He’s doing this the right way, and getting political victories out of it too boot.
He isnt letting this go to waste.
Bravo! Mr. President!
and no action.
"Listen up missy, if you don't clean your room, only a half a piece of cake for desert! And this time I really, really, mean it! Missy?, Missy? Missy are you listening to me!?"
