Trump may punish home countries of illegal aliens

The Mexican and Central American invasion of the United States must end. They are not sending us their best. They are sending thugs, drug lords, and welfare queens. As if we need more of them.

President Trump has a new weapon to fight back. It's spelled money.

"President Trump announced Wednesday that the U.S. will begin to deduct foreign aid from countries whose residents illegally enter the United States," the Washington Examiner reported.

Ah, Uncle Sugar is going to pull some strings.

Trump said, "Many of these countries we give tremendous amounts of aid to. Tens of millions of dollars. And we're working on a plan to deduct a lot of the aid. We're going to work out something where every time someone comes in from a certain country, we're going to deduct a rather large amount of money from what we give them in aid, if we give them aid at all. We may just not give them aid at all."

Now then, remember the tariffs on steel and aluminum in March?

Here in May, they are gone. They were bargaining chips to get NAFTA renegotiated, EU trade renegotiated, China to commit to buying U.S. goods, and South Korea to cap the steel it exports to America.

This is a bargaining chip. We elected Monty Hall as president. Let's make a deal.

  1. I sure hope that includes Ireland as there are 50,000-plus undocumented Irish living in the U.S., mostly NYC.

    1. According to https://foreignassistance.gov/
      Ireland receives zero US foreign aid. I would be fine with this policy for *any* country with illegals found here that gets US aid.

  2. Won't take a judge long to rule that PDT can't do this.

    Off topic, Don, Morgan Freeman needs to be added to the PDT wall of shame soon.

    1. If one judge says no, can another judge soon thereafter say the first judge's ruling is stayed until common sense prevails?

    2. I'm betting only a superior judge can overrule a lower court judge.

    3. So then, among judges of equal rank, whoever says it first, rules? Like calling shotgun first? I don't think so.

    4. It's called precedent Sorry, but I think I am right. The problem comes in when a circuit judge in one place does something and then another judge in another place does something different. Then it goes up to the next higher court or the total circuit court.

    5. @TimothyJ: It used to be that circuit judges limited enforcement of their rulings to their own circuits. If opinions in by judges in different circuits disagreed, the SCOTUS might take on one of those cases in order to resolve the differences so that a uniform law applied across the entire country. Today, however, activist circuit court judges are extending their rulings against the Trump administration beyond their own circuits to the entire country. As far as know, however, there has been no instance thus far where two circuit judges have extended conflicting rulings to the entire country. Before the age of Trump Law, circuit judges tended to avoid the possibility of such conflicts by limiting the scope of their rulings. These days, liberal judges intoxicated with power have been inviting judicial chaos with their wide ranging decisions, knowing any appeal to the SCOTUS moves at a glacial pace if at all.

  3. Tough talk probably just signals a shakedown of these foreign countries for a Trump kickback. Qutar is back in good graces after bailing out clown prince Jared Kushner's family. Once Trump gets his kickback he'll be tweeting about saving jobs in Mexico, just like Ghina's ZTE.

    1. No, you've got it backward. Those countries have been shaking US down for way too long. It's time for a little kicking back.

    2. Missing the point rbr - Trump does his saber rattling until said foreign countries bribe Trump personally - you know like Trump said it's time to be nice to China company ZTE less than a day after China bankrolled $500 million to an India resort project which features numerous Trump properties.

      But I'll give President Dennison credit, the Saudis had Hillary wrapped up with a mere $100 million to the Clinton Foundation. President Dennison got five times that from the Chinese to roll over.

    3. Chinese invested $500 million to resort in India which contains some Trump properties.

      THat is pretty weak sauce if you consider how business is conducted in China and India. There are ton of sticky fingers involving law enforcement, municipalities, state governments, officials, buereaucrats, politicians not to mention garden variety inefficiency and wastage.
      The Trump side of the resorts will be luck to see 1/100th of that.

      Also correlation does not equal causation. Trump Inc involves tons of properties all across the world. At any time there is some government or other involved in some degree with those properties.

      Seems you watch a lot of Young Turks.

  4. Best. President. Ever.

    1. I was alive during the Reagan years, so I'm only willing to say "Best President Since Reagan." Bringing the Soviet Union to its knees and ending the threat of international communism, all the while putting the country on a path of peace and prosperity that lasted into the W years, that is a hard act to follow.

      So maybe not quite the best of my lifetime, but clearly, absolutely, unequivocally the best since Reagan. I will commit to that position.

      I agree! As much as I like Trump I still say he has a ways to go to overshadow Ronald Reagan. BUT - Think about this; Trump, in only 1-1/2 years is being talked-about in the same breath as Reagan's accomplishments. Time will tell.

    1. Gotta love it when a grammar criticism comes from a person who doesn't know the difference between pigeon and pidgin. Hint: cooing is part of "pigeon" language. Pidgin languages? Not so much.

    4. I am curious why anyone is giving any attention to someone who posts as 'anonymous'.

      Delete
  6. I think these "Anonymous" comments should call themselves Anonymous 1" or "Anonymous 2" or "Anonymous SJW" or the like so readers know that every "Anonymous" is not the same person as every other "Anonymous". I for one, particularlu like the grammar/spelling/syntax lesson they like to hand out as evidence of their moral and intellectual superiority.

    1. Leverage. President Trump is using the U.S. economy as a lever and he is moving the world.

      That being said, I wouldn't give those countries a single taxpayer cent. I would send all illegal aliens back to their home country along with a bill for what it costs us to find, arrest, and transport them. - Elric

  8. I don't know why Trump didn't pull Mexico's aid after they allowed the caravan to roll through. Especially since a good part of that aid is intended for Mexico's southern border security and enforcement. If they want to tell us to f**k off, fine, but they need to be responded to in-kind. Not pulling their aid makes me wonder how serious the admin is about it all.

      Good points!

      Second guessing Donald Trump is usually a lesson in futility. My only attempt at second guessing DJT on this is; Perhaps he's still gonna' use that as another bargaining chip in the NAFTA negotiations.

      Yeah, it was quite obvious that Mexico threw open their Southern border and gave them a pass-thru to the U.S. border.

      Watching what DJT is gonna' do next week with what was said or done this week is usually as satisfying to me, who as a boy, would return week-after-week to see what happens in the action serial at the Saturday afternoon matinee.

  9. Hey, liberals- Tell us again how there's no way that Trump can get Mexico to pay for the wall...
