US Government Set to Send $10 Billion in Foreign Aid to Mexico and Central America, Nothing for a Wall?

Published

on

Democratic Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer appears set to coast to yet another easy victory in an end of year government funding dispute, as the GOP and White House now appear poised to cave on a previous demand for $5 billion in wall funding.

Although it seems a bare minimum to merely begin wall construction is an unacceptable demand, the same government funding package in which wall funding is noticeably absent features more than $10 billion in foreign aid directed towards Mexico and Central America. It was announced at a State Department event in Mexico with the Mexican foreign secretary that $5.8 billion will be spent in Central America for “strengthening government and economic development,” with an additional $4.8 billion slated for economic development in Southern Mexico.

The purpose for the foreign aid payment was framed as a way for poor countries in the region to improve circumstances as a means to make caravan-style mass migration to the United States unnecessary. However, the irony of paying foreign nations to stop the flow of migrants while keeping the porous and unsecured U.S border largely exposed could strike many conservatives and American nationalists as a totally flawed set of priorities.

To put matters in perspective, most serious estimates gauging the price of an effective and serious border wall estimate it would cost between $20-30 billion. The money the U.S. taxpayer is slated to send across the border as a free gift to the notoriously corrupt governments of countries like Mexico and Honduras could have been spent to cover half the costs of the border wall that the American people were promised in the 2016 Presidential election.

After signaling a willingness to shut down the government for the bare minimum of $5 billion to begin wall construction, the Trump administration seems to have backtracked, with White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders saying the administration wished to avoid a shutdown. She said that the administration was looking at alternative means of securing wall funding and construction.

Enough excuses and slush payments to corrupt foreign governments while the border wall remains unrealized.

College Republican National Committee Flips Out After School Chapters Join Immigration Moratorium Coalition

The College Republican establishment is not happy about this.

Published

The College Republican National Committee (CRNC) is enraged after several university chapters signed onto a letter calling for an end to temporary worker programs in the U.S. due the toll that the coronavirus pandemic has taken on the national economy.

College Republican leaders delivered the letter to the White House last week, urging Trump to put a moratorium on immigration policies that are jeopardizing the demographic integrity of the country.

“[W]e ask you to immediately take action to rescind the work authorization of hundreds of thousands of foreign, nonimmigrant skilled guest workers in order to ease the economic suffering of American college students and recent graduates looking for meaningful employment in these trying times,” the coalition wrote in their letter.

Over 25 College Republican and Young Republican groups signed onto the letter, which demonstrated how the “America First” movement is guiding and influencing conservative youth.

“These guest workers — and especially those in the OPT and H- 1B programs — take jobs temporarily at wages far below the average for their positions. This is because employers can easily pay these guest workers less than they pay Americans,” the letter stated.

“This is not right,” the letter added, calling for the H-1B program to be suspended and the OPT program to be shuttered permanently.

The letter has not come without consequences, as the CRNC has reportedly expressed displeasure with chapters that signed onto the coalition. Big League Politics has reported on how establishment forces within the College Republicans have conducted a witch hunt against Trump-style nationalists, harbored homosexual predators within their ranks, sided with ANTIFA terrorists against pro-Trump students, and committed other atrocious behavior to undermine the conservative cause.

Gavin Wax, a Fox News contributor who serves as President of the New York Young Republican Club, was instrumental in putting together the coalition. He believes that the letter represents the ascending movement within conservatism, and the push-back cannot stop the momentum that has coalesced behind this coalition with Trump in the White House.

“It is great to see young conservative leaders from across the country uniting to promote a common sense proposal to defend the American worker and our national sovereignty. We cannot continue to keep the gates open as working-class Americans struggle to provide for their own families,” Wax told Big League Politics.

“It is a shame that this position has not been readily adopted by more organizations and their national affiliations. We are thankful for the work FAIR and Michelle Malkin have done to advance this issue forward,” he added.

Big League Politics will continue to hold the College Republicans accountable as the establishment desperately tries to fend off the rising “America First” movement.
