President Trump says he wants to cut all foreign aid to countries that either abuse our immigration system by sending a large number of their people to the US and to countries that refuse to take back their citizens deported from the United States.
He is asking Congress to pass a bill to that effect, which he says is a policy that both parties should embrace. Even if the measure doesn’t pass it puts the Democrats voting against this common sense legislation on the record. With the elections coming up, they would have to decide on appeasing the voters or standing up for their ideology of placing illegal aliens above American citizens.
“The big Caravan of People from Honduras, now coming across Mexico and heading to our “Weak Laws” Border, had better be stopped before it gets there. Cash cow NAFTA is in play, as is foreign aid to Honduras and the countries that allow this to happen. Congress MUST ACT NOW!”

“I don’t want children taken away from parents, and when you prosecute the parents for coming in illegally — which should happen — you have to take the children away,” he said.
“These loopholes have created a massive child smuggling trade. Can you believe this?” Trump said. “In this day and age, we’re talking about child smuggling. We’re talking about women smuggling, in this day and age.”
“The smugglers know these rules and regulations better than the people that drew them, as a result there has been a 325 percent increase in minors and a 435 percent increase in the smuggling or attempted smuggling of families and minors into our country,” he said. “We’re stopping them all the time, by the thousands, but they still get through. We have no wall, we have no border security.”
Let’s hope that the president has his veto pen warmed up when Paul Ryan’s open borders bill hits his desk.
