President Trump followed through another one of his promises. His administration is trying to solve the immigration problem from the core, and actions need to be made as soon as possible.
The State Department has announced that they will be cutting foreign aid to El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras after they failed to take proper steps to curb illegal immigrants coming to the United States.
State Department spokeswoman Morgan Ortagus stated that they would not continue sending aid until the Trump administration saw “concrete actions to reduce the number of illegal migrants coming to the U.S. border” from the three countries.
Ortagus stated that the United States will finish funding the current projects but plans to end funding for all of the future projects.
The State Department also announced that they will work with Congress to re-appropriate the funds.
The ending of new foreign aid to our southern neighbor, Mexico, comes as the Trump administration seeks to force Mexico and Central American countries to crack down on illegal immigration.
Mexico and the United States recently finished a border agreement to help lower illegal immigration at the southern border.
Mexico’s president stated that he would sell the previous administration’s ”luxurious presidential plane” to help pay for the agreement.
The situation at the southern border is pushing beyond every red line. A top immigration analyst said the U.S. is expecting over 1 million illegal immigrants in 2019.
