Trump to cut aid to countries refusing to cooperate on immigration

(Worthy News) - President Donald Trump said Wednesday he is working on plans to reduce U.S. aid to countries that refuse to cooperate with U.S. immigration authorities.

Speaking at an immigration roundtable focused on the MS-13 gang, Trump suggested a policy of withholding aid from countries that don't help prevent immigrants from illegally entering the United States and refuse to accept U.S. deportations.

"We're going to work out something where every time someone comes from a certain country, we're going to deduct a rather large amount of money from what we give them in aid -- if we give them aid at all, which we may not just give them aid at all, because despite the reports I hear, I don't believe they're helping us one bit," Trump said. "We're looking at our whole aid structure. It's going to be changed very radically. It's already started." [ Source: UPI (Read More...) ]
