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?

Customs and Border Patrol Set to Deploy Elite Units to Sanctuary Cities to Assist ICE
CBP is serious about enforcing immigration law, even in cities that intend to flout it.
Customs and Border Patrol is preparing to redeploy some of the agency’s highly trained tactical personnel throughout the nation’s “sanctuary cities” in order to support Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
The New York Times reported on the development Friday, that signals the Department of Homeland Security(which presides over both entities) is dead serious about national immigration enforcement, even in scofflaw municipalities that have sought to neuter it.
According to the report, more than 100 of CBP’s agents are being deployed throughout the nation to assist in ICE operations. It’s possible the agents could be tasked with apprehending illegal alien fugitives who are released onto the streets from local jail custody. They’ve been described as members of a unit known as BORTAC, an unit of personnel analogous to CBP’s SWAT team.
It’s common for sanctuary city jurisdictions to release individuals who are often violent criminals from custody, ignoring ICE detainer requests that the fugitives be instead handed over to face federal charges for immigration violations.
Sanctuary cities often create unnecessary risks to public safety by forcing ICE to arrest dangerous criminals off of the streets, when they could’ve been simply handed over from municipal jail systems to the federal agency. Eric Garcetti, the mayor of one of America’s biggest cities, openly admits that Los Angeles simply does not participate in immigration enforcement.
Regardless of your immigration status, I want every Angeleno to know your city is on your side. Here in Los Angeles, our police department does not coordinate with ICE or participate in immigration enforcement.
— Mayor Eric Garcetti (@MayorOfLA) February 15, 2020
If scofflaw cities such as Philadelphia and Los Angeles are truly determined to undermine immigration law enforcement, then so be it. Attorney General Bill Barr has followed the lead of his predecessor, Jeff Sessions, in instituting new measures to punish the open borders cities, restricting them from federal law enforcement programs.
Conservatives shouldn’t be afraid of advocating for a strong federal government that will step in to perform the law enforcement duties sanctuary cities are cowering away from.
