Honduras just received $125 million yesterday, thanks to a nice little plan that good ol Robin Hood, er, Obama set in place that gives away millions more of Americans’ money. Never mind the fact that we are $19,939,760,263,983.42 in freaking debt!!!!!! That’s just today’s numbers.
Oh yeah, and then there’s the small tidbit that it would take $55 million to fix Flint, Michigan’s water, which is extremely toxic. It is causing serious health issues, including high levels of lead in the bloodstream, especially for the children.
Those are only TWO of the reasons that we absolutely should not be throwing money out the window to other countries.
Oh, but don’t worry, Obama justifies it as a way to slow the illegal immigration to America. His logic is that if we give them money, which will total in $750 million once the program is played out, then life in Honduras, Guatemala, and El Salvador will improve.
This is all part of a plan that Obama created, which is known as the Northern Triangle of Central America.
Every year, between 80,000 and 100,000 Hondurans trek north in an attempt to get into the United States, according to estimates by humanitarian groups.
About a million of their compatriots live in the US, most of them without legal residency papers.
The new US president, Donald Trump, has promised to reduce the number of undocumented migrants in the United States and to deport many of them back to their home countries.
He has also signed an order to start looking at construction of a 2000-mile (3,000-kilometer) wall along the US border with Mexico to stop illegal border crossings.
