How about we CUT the $$$ and restart aid ONLY with oversight? That will help prevent the ugly corruption and outright theft by leaders of countries that have been allowed to take our money, use it to indulge the elites of those country (who are protecting their wealth and power) and then send those they neglect to the US so that we can take care of them with additional taxpayer money?
Talk about adding insult to injury!
ENOUGH with these false liberal memes of "kids being trafficked into sex slavery." Have they taken a look at the registry of missing teenagers in the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA?
As has been noted more and more each day - have these liberal whiners looked at the victims of violence in OUR OWN CITIES?
Once again, liberals force Conservatives to be the grown-ups - the "bad cop" parents, in order to do what's best.
Here's a list of the South America countries1 that received the most aid - millions of US $$$:
Costa Rica 38.4
El Salvador 280.8
Bear in mind that the topic of foreign aid,as it relates to the illegal immigrants crashing our southern borders, is only one small factor in the broad scope of multiple crises these immigrants bring with them - ranging from our national security and our citizens' health to making U.S. taxpayers liable for the expense of hiring interpreters for the majority of non-English speaking immigrants to providing personal hygiene products and much more.
So, what can we do to help push back on the federal government that refuses to bend to the Will of the People who want our borders secured, illegal aliens deported back to their home countries and our immigration laws enforced?
In addition to attending rallies and protests, we can share inarguable facts wherever and whenever we can - in blogs such as this; via e-mails; Tweets; Facebook posts; comments on other social network sites; and we can write "Letters to the Editors" of local papers (print and online); send, fax or e-mail copies of the letters to local, county, state, and national officials.
We can make telephone calls to the same chain of people listed above and express our concerns. The truth is that America has always thrived "from the bottom, up". You might be amazed to see the influence of your voice when you let your City Council or local School Board Members know your feelings. They are connected to other officials "up the food chain" and your thoughts may just scurry right up the ladder to officials even to the national level.
