If you’re ready for an extremely enlightening and shocking reason President Trump is absolutely correct to stop sending aid to Guatemala, El Salvadore, and Honduras until they can figure out a way to stop the migrant exodus that’s leaving those countries, cutting through Mexico, and making it across our porous borders, you’re not going to find it here. In fact, you don’t need to find it anywhere. The answer is that obvious.
The aid isn’t working. If it were, there wouldn’t be tens of thousands of people leaving there every month trying to get to the United States.
If it ain’t working, stop doing it.
The whole purpose of the aid is to make these nations prosperous and secure enough to keep people from paying money to walk thousands of miles with women and girls getting sexually assaulted all along the way. It’s to stop the cottage industry of human smuggling from flourishing and empowering the cartels. It’s to help these nations get a handle on crime, poverty, and corruption.
But it’s not working. Not at all. If anything, things are getting worse. Apparently, all we’re doing is empowering these nations to force their people to leave even faster, based on the numbers coming out of CBP. If that’s the case, we’re better off if we stop sending them aid. They’ll be better off too, apparently, since the numbers are only getting worse. It would see that the aid we’re sending is only harming them further. Why would we do something that does more harm than good?
It’s important to understand this because the left is going to call it inhumane or whatever else they can come up with to denounce the President’s intentions to cut off aid. They’re wont to call anything the President does by names that will rally their base because their base is ignorant to the truth and will tune out anything that doesn’t match the narrative they’ve been sold.
So no, I’m not here to shock you with my intellect. I’m just going to call it how it is. The aid isn’t working. The border crisis is getting worse. The left is going to pounce. The week hasn’t even technically started yet.
There’s a major crisis at the border that’s becoming a major crisis in the interior. It’s time to stop doing the things we’ve been doing for years that are clearly not working and start doing what common sense tells us WILL work.
