The State Department announced Monday the United States will discontinue sending new foreign aid to El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras until the Central American nations take “concrete action” to curb the flow of illegal immigrants to our southern border.
“We completed a review, and previously awarded grants and contracts will continue with current funding,” said State Department spokeswoman Morgan Ortagus. “State Department assistance in support of priorities of the Departments of Justice and Homeland Security priorities to help the Northern Triangle governments take actions that will protect the U.S. border and counter transnational organized crime will also continue.”
In March, President Trump said he would stop sending aid until they figure out how to do their part to stop the border crisis.
Ortagus continued, “We will not provide new funds for programs in those countries until we are satisfied the Northern Triangle governments are taking concrete actions to reduce the number of illegal migrants coming to the U.S. border.”
Jack Posobiec said, in one word, how this should make us all feel.

But, of course, I have a few more words than that. I’ve always acknowledged the border crisis must be handled on multiple fronts as past presidents have tried to strengthen security. But Trump is the first to try to force nations at the sources of the problem to get fixed. First, he negotiated with Mexico to do their part. Now, he’s asking the same from the Northern Triangle nations to do the same.
If the people have no reason to leave, they won’t. But as long as they are made to feel they need to come to America to have a normal life, they’ll continue to try to do so. It’s good that not all aid is being held back, as much of it is used to benefit us. But the threat of no new aid is big as all three nations rely on the United States to operate their own governments.
I couldn’t agree more with this sentiment…
Good, let's end foreign aid to other countries that hate us now. https://t.co/MiB8Qx1CLD

It behooves these countries to do what they can to retain their citizens. With as much as 1/3rd of their populations claiming to want to come to America, these countries must do more to help themselves.
