On Monday, the President has followed through on yet another promise, as he has cut off approximately $400 million worth of aid dollars in foreign financial assistance to El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras, “until [they] are satisfied that the Northern Triangle governments are taking concrete actions to reduce the number of illegal migrants coming to the US border.” The President has repeatedly warned the trio of nations to reign in their mass exodus to the United States, or face financial consequences!
So far, tens of thousands of Central American migrants have already crossed into America this year, but Democrats like Senator Bob Menendez (D-NJ) stated…
“As feared, a presidential tantrum will limit our nation’s ability to actually help address the challenges forcing people to flee to the U.S.”
Now, according to Congressional aides, the Administration allegedly said the administration told them it would reallocate $370 million in aid to Central America that lawmakers had approved for fiscal 2018, and suspend an additional $180 million Congress had approved for fiscal 2017, all of which has yet to be spent!
Reports indicate that the Democrats are working to try to thwart the Presidents ability to cut off funding to the three Central American nations through lawsuits, or legislation. However, Constitutionally the President has the right, and it is within his own power, to cut off foreign aid! However, Democrats are already scrambling to find a way to stop his efforts, as they try to keep the borders open, and to keep the illegals flowing into the United States of America by the tens of thousands, or likely more!
