The Trump administration has caved on their threat to shut down the government to fulfill his promise to build a wall on the southern border of the united States. Instead, of the $5 billion wall being constructed, the US government is promising $10.6 billion to Mexico and Central America… and that’s on your back and your children’s back because it is all borrowed against your name.
The Associated Press reports:
The United States pledged $5.8 billion in aid Tuesday for strengthening government and economic development in Central America, and another $4.8 billion in development aid for southern Mexico.
The U.S aid aims to promote better security conditions and job opportunities as part of a regional plan to allow Central Americans to remain in their countries and not have to emigrate.
The plan was announced in a joint U.S.-Mexican statement released by the State Department and read aloud by Mexican Foreign Relations Secretary Marcelo Ebrard in the Mexican capital.
“In sum I think this is good news, very good news for Mexico,” Ebrard said.
Oh, I’m sure. It’s not your money! And the criminal Congress that passes this and the criminal executive branch that signs it are doing so in clear violation of the Constitution is doing so at your expense, America.
Meanwhile, don’t forget the several migrant caravans heading towards our southern border with demands that we let them in and if not, pay them $50,o00.
Kellyanne Conway says President Trump is “not softening his stance” on his demand for a border wall.

No, he isn’t softening his stance, but he is backing down from his promise to shut down the government and to fight for the people.
Some have claimed that he is simply “changing his tactics.” For instance, 100% fed up writes:
President Trump just switched tactics in his battle for border wall funding. He plans on using funds already in the current budget in order to build the wall at our southern border:
Sarah Sanders: “We are looking at every avenue available to us possible. The President has asked every one of his Cabinet secretaries to look for funding that can be used to protect our borders”
The Democrats have been throwing a temper tantrum about funding the wall because they don’t want secure borders. Senator Chuck Schumer declared that there is no way the Democrats would fund this even though illegal immigration costs the taxpayers $200 billion every year. That tells you where their priorities are. Schumer doubled down and said Trump needs approval from Congress to gather funds from a variety of different agencies.
Sanders went on to try and tell us how they would get this done.
“We have other ways that we can get to that $5 billion that we will work with Congress if they will make sure that we get a bill passed that provides not just the funding for the wall, but there is a piece of legislation that’s been pushed around that Democrats actually voted 26-5 out of committee that provides roughly $26 billion in border security, including $1.6 billion for the wall. That’s something that we would be able to support as long as we can couple that with other funding resources to get to the $5 billion.”
“At the end of the day, we don’t want to shut down the government,” she added. “We want to shut down the border from illegal immigration, from drugs coming into this country.”
If this was the issue, why wasn’t it done in the first two years? Trump has been spending money at the rate Obama was, including the funding of Planned Parenthood here in the states while eliminating it internationally.
Why is our government giving more than twice the proclaimed cost of the wall to foreign countries instead of spending half of that to build the wall?
I’ll tell you. There isn’t going to be a wall. This is more redistribution of American wealth. It is unconstitutional. It is theft. It is criminal, and I don’t care how big their smiles are when they tell you about it, you can’t tell me otherwise because Congress is not authorized to give our money to foreign countries. If you think so, please cite Article, Section and Clause to prove your position.
