Officially this money is supposed to discourage illegal immigration, in reality it sends the message that if a lot of illegal aliens from your country come and create a crisis, the United States will send you huge piles of money.

It encourages the very behavior that it claims to be discouraging.

The White House announced $254.6 million in new aid for Central American countries today.

The money will go toward returning unaccompanied minors who travel to the U.S. illegally to their families and fostering youth centered programs in their home countries, the White House said this afternoon.

The assistance to the governments of El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras announced today is in addition to the $130 million in aid the U.S. already provides those countries in economic assistance.

And the governments are reacting entirely predictable… with more blackmail demands.

“As long as (U.S.) immigration reform is not approved, the exodus of children to the United States will continue,” Jorge Ramon Hernandez, the senior representative of Honduran President Juan Orlando Hernandez, said at the talks.

Sure. Beatings will continue until morale improves. Kipling covered this one adequately enough.

It is always a temptation to an armed and agile nation
To call upon a neighbour and to say: –
“We invaded you last night–we are quite prepared to fight,
Unless you pay us cash to go away.”

And that is called asking for Dane-geld,
And the people who ask it explain
That you’ve only to pay ‘em the Dane-geld
And then  you’ll get rid of the Dane!

It is always a temptation for a rich and lazy nation,
To puff and look important and to say: –
“Though we know we should defeat you, we have not the time to meet you.
We will therefore pay you cash to go away.”

And that is called paying the Dane-geld;
But we’ve  proved it again and  again,
That if once you have paid him the Dane-geld
You never get rid of the Dane.

It is wrong to put temptation in the path of any nation,
For fear they should succumb and go astray;
So when you are requested to pay up or be molested,
You will find it better policy to say: –

“We never pay any-one Dane-geld,
No matter how trifling the cost;
For the end of that game is oppression and shame,
And the nation that pays it is lost!”

Except that now weak and small nations can also invade us.

    If there is anything worse than great and powerful nations colonizing weaker nations, it is weak and dysfunctional nations colonizing more advanced nations. At least the advanced colonizers bring roads and electricity, technology and education with them. The less advanced colonizers bring crime, corruption, tribalism, nepotism and misogyny. And, thanks to the multi-culti cult, advanced nations are no longer allowed to press for assimilation, so their backward colonizers bring permanent balkanization as well.

    They are kids, man. Don’t be playing politics here. Leave them alone.

      “They are kids, man. Don’t be playing politics here. Leave them alone.”

      This IS a political issue due to the fact they are here specifically BECAUSE of politics… Obama’s politics!!!

      there are adults using kids

    • truebearing

      Wrong. Many, possibly most, are adult men. Don’t play politics with the truth, man.

    • another_engineer

      They need to be home with their parent(s).

      Deport with extreme speed.

    • ndacboss

      They’re illegal aliens.

    • Trappedincalifornia

      83% of the unaccompanied minors coming across the border are over 14 years of age.

      By the age of 14 I had been orphaned & was living in FosterCare. When I turned 16 I went to court & was declared an emancipated minor, which meant I had most of the same responsibilities as an 18 year old. I could pay bills, pay rent and work 2 jobs while I finished high school. I could not vote or drink.

      Cory, please explain to me why these illegal minors should be treated better than legal minors?

      Obama has orchestrated this crisis & should be impeached. Only God can forgive him for messing with these kids lives.

  • truebearing

    Yes, and Obama knew that would be the outcome from the start. This is Cloward-Piven foreign aid.

  • Hard Little Machine

    Better to spend money here VACCINATING them once they get here before their measles, mumps, TB, rubella, whooping cough etc kill us all.

  • ObamaYoMoma

    I’ve been saying it since I first heard about it. There is no way those dirt poor kids could afford to travel all the way to America and especially unaccompanied, as it has to be totally orchestrated and paid for by Obama, Inc and his minions as a Latin American voter drive. It couldn’t be any clearer could it, Obama represents the biggest and most immediate threat to America we have. Even bigger and more immediate than the threat emanating from stealth demographic conquest. There was no way he was ever going to let the Congress get a hold of those IRS emails. He has too much left on his plate to do. He is a tyrant and the Obama administration has metastasized into a tyrannical government. If the Republicans in Congress don’t hurry up and grow a pair, we might just have to take this fight to the streets boys.

  • herb benty

    Honduras, Guatamala, El Salvador??? Communists buds of the Obama Admin., whose illegals will no doubt vote “Democrat”. Jarrett thinks ahead!

  • another_engineer

    Funny how one of the most prominent proponents of illegal immigration into the United States is now silent.. the Catholic Church.

  • ndacboss

    Taking money from you, taxpayer, and giving it to foreign countries to send more aliens.
