President Donald J. Trump was elected to pursue an America First agenda that would benefit the citizens that fund the federal government via taxation. To a certain extent he has been successful in that mission, but has not been able to secure $5 billion to fund a wall at the southern U.S. border. With that in mind, let’s take a look at countries that suck up billions of dollars annually in total foreign aid money – raised by the U.S. taxpayer – while Congress tells those same Americans that it cannot find the money to make sure that America continues to be a sovereign nation, per How Much:
- Iraq – $5.3 billion
- Afghanistan – $5.1 billion
- Israel – $3.1 billion
- Egypt – $1.2 billion
- Jordan $1.2 billion
- Ethiopia – $1.1 billion
- Kenya – $1.1 billion
- Syria – $916 million
- Pakistan – $778 million
- Uganda – $741 million
- Ghana – $724 million
- Nigeria – $718 million
- South Sudan – $708 million
- Tanzania – $629 million
- South Africa – $597 million
- Indonesia – $562 million
- Ukraine – $525 million
- Mozambique – $514 million
- Liberia $474 million
- Congo – $453 million
- Zambia – $446 million
- West Bank (aka HAMAS) – $417 million
- Haiti – $377 million
- Colombia – $325 million
Countries that receive more than $200 million from the United States annually include: The Philippines, Somalia, Mali, Rwanda, Zimbabwe and Guatemala. Countries that receive more than $100 million from the United States annually include: Cote d’Ivoire, Sierra Leone, India, Chad, Sudan, Honduras, Madagascar and Cameroon.
On Tuesday, the United States pledged $10.6 billion in foreign aid – $4.8 billion of which will be given to Mexico, and the rest to Central American countries – in a deal that would fund two border walls.
The point is obvious: Congress, which is the most generous nation on earth, throws money at these nations every year – and most of it is completely unaccounted for. Yet when it coms to helping our own people, Congress balks every time. Ordinary Americans see the problem here. The D.C. elites do not.
How did it come to this?
Arizona Border Patrol Officer Stabbed Multiple Times, Shoots and Kills Criminal Alien
A Border Patrol officer patrolling the US-Mexico border shot and killed a man who stabbed him multiple times in Southern Arizona on Monday night.
CBP officials reported that the unnamed agent was patrolling near the transnational city of Nogales, Arizona, when he encountered a group of individuals he suspected to be aliens entering the country illegally. One man accompanying them group attacked the agent when he sought to apprehend the aliens, stabbing him multiple times.
The CBP agent went on to fatally shoot the alien, who may have been a smuggler moving a group of illegal migrants across the border. Deputies of the Santa Cruz Sheriff’s Office were called to provide backup, and the Border Patrol agent that was stabbed had to be airlifted to a Tucson hospital early on Tuesday morning. Fortunately, he was released from the hospital later the same day.
Cartel-affiliated criminal smugglers have increasingly sought to infiltrate the United States in Arizona, hoping to avoid a buffed border patrol presence in Texas and new wall construction in the most trafficked areas of the border.
Preliminary reports indicate that the Border Patrol agent may have been alone when he encountered the smuggler’s group of criminal aliens, a hazard that has resulted in violent attacks on Border Patrol agents by cartel-affiliated criminals before.
The FBI is reportedly investigating the incident. It’s unclear if the group of aliens encountered by the agent have been expelled under special coronavirus immigration regulations, transferred into the custody of immigration detention, or simply allowed to proceed into the country.
