(INTELLIHUB) — The United States cut off all aid to three Central American countries on Saturday after the countries leaders have repeatedly disobeyed the wishes of President Donald Trump by sending caravans of migrants seeking asylum to try and penetrate the United States border which in turn has created a serious border crisis.
Guatemala, El Salvador, and Honduras will no longer be receiving aid from the U.S. after leaders played proverbial games with President Trump.
Over 12,000 migrants are now waiting at U.S. processing facilities and the entire system has become overrun.
President Trump made clear earlier in the week that there was a “very good likelihood” he would close the border and make good on that promise.
Sen. Bob Menendez (D-NJ) was infuriated with Trump’s order calling it “reckless.”
However, the bottom line is that the three countries were given a tremendous amount of money and should take the president and the hundreds of millions of dollars in free aid they were given more seriously.
It is unknown at this point how border trade will be affected.
