    Our national debt make the US a poorer country than El Salvador, Honduras, and Guatemala.

    Sorry folks, but half our citizens can't support themselves and many depend on schools to feed their children.

    Not just our country, but most people are in debt.

    So why are we importing more poor people?

    While I certainly share LOU's concern I see this as a tiny step in the right direction Some how we have to find a way to work with these countries to help them establish a safe environment were people can prosper. We cant build walls tall enough to blind us from the practical reality (and ethically responsibility, for those of us that believe in ethics) that the only way to stop people from having to make such a difficult and dangerous journey.

    Wait just a minute!

    WE are paying these countries and THEN allowing them to invade us?

    We must be insane!

    @Lou
    But it does seem to keep a lot more of their people there instead of heading North.

    Any money sent to those countries only goes to support their corrupt governments.

    After spending a year working in Central America, I have less faith in those countries than I do Donald Trump.
