What do you mean "fine"? Its not fine that people are streaming over the border.
To fix that problem, something has to be done in the countries that these people are fleeing.
Trump reduced aid to those countries, that just makes things worse.

No, They agreed to take action, and were not keeping the Agreement.


NOW THEY ARE ACTING UPON THAT AGREEMENT.

OOPs, noonereal cannot see the Forest because there at Trees in the way

Kind of like the NATO nations that agreed to pay X% of their GDP toward defense in the NATO treaty..

They were not doing it. Until, Wait Trump go them to HONOR the agreement and take action and pay their agreed funding.

I do not think we need to be giving aid to any countries. If we do or don't either way the USA is not responsible for a country that has a terrible government.

It does make things worse, but it shouldn't. I mean, the countries with unlivable conditions for peace-loving people, Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador, the so-called Northern Triangle, are the root of the refugee influx. Each is run by governments with Uncle Sam's bloody fingerprints all over 'em.

Each exists at our pleasure. We should have more focus on nearby events. Cut your aid? We'll cut you loose from the cool little job you have of managing, and doin' it in style, the affairs of a third world country. We'll cut your throats if necessary.

Not even if the United States overthrew the elected government and replaced it with a dictatorship?

Let me explain something to you.

WE, the USA, is constantly adjusting and changing agreements. All countries constantly are.

What is different today is that Trump makes a Hollywood production of everything he does.

He is so ignorant and so full of himself he may well believe he is doing a lot and that they are all great things,.

Every 10 year old I have even know has thought the same things.

From Bloomberg Close today:
If countries keep calling Trump's bluff, as Mexico has done, there's a chance he may start burning things down just to prove a point, Timothy L. O'Brien writes in Bloomberg Opinion. The only thing he got from the tariff stunt was another round of abundant attention. Trump isn't playing chess, he's playing with fire. "Trying to govern by threat and blunt force isn't really governing at all."
