    Trump Plans to Pay Mexico to Deport Illegal Aliens There

    U.S. Plans to Pay Mexico to Deport Unauthorized Immigrants There

    • Sept. 12, 2018

    WASHINGTON — President Trump has promised for years that Mexico would pay for a vast border wall, a demand that country has steadfastly refused. Now, in the Trump administration’s campaign to stop illegal immigration, the United States plans instead to pay Mexico.

    In a recent notice sent to Congress, the administration said it intended to take $20 million in foreign assistance funds and use it to help Mexico pay plane and bus fare to deport as many as 17,000 people who are in that country illegally.

    The money will help increase deportations of Central Americans, many of whom pass through Mexico to get to the American border. Any unauthorized immigrant in Mexico who is a known or suspected terrorist will also be deported under the program, according to the notification, although such people are few in number.


    Katie Waldman, a spokeswoman for the Department of Homeland Security, said the program was intended to help relieve immigration flows at the United States border with Mexico.


    “We are working closely with our Mexican counterparts to confront rising border apprehension numbers — specifically, a 38 percent increase in families this month alone — directly and to ensure that those with legitimate claims have access to appropriate protections,” Ms. Waldman said.

    A spokesman for the Mexican Embassy did not immediately respond Wednesday to a request for comment.


    The plan, which has been debated internally for months, is part of a broader push by the Trump administration to redirect billions in foreign assistance to other priorities.

    The administration has yet to spend nearly $3 billion in foreign aid, money allocated last year by Congress with broad bipartisan support. Hundreds of millions of dollars meant to help stabilize Syria and support Palestinian schools and hospitals has already been redirected.


    While the administration has made several announcements about not spending on priorities Congress intended, it has mostly kept quiet about what it will do with the money. But it has long been frustrated that Congress provides billions for foreign aid while refusing to fund its immigration priorities.

    The money will be transferred from the State Department to the Department of Homeland Security, and then sent to Mexico.


    “Congress intended for this money to lift up communities dealing with crime, corruption and so many other challenges, not to expand this administration’s deportation crusade,” said Representative Eliot L. Engel of New York, the top Democrat on the House Foreign Affairs Committee. “I want answers about why the State Department thinks it can ignore Congress and dump more cash into deportation efforts. Until then, I’ll do whatever I can to stop this.”


    The maneuver is the latest by the administration to reduce the number of immigrants crossing the southwestern border. The most prominent piece of the effort has been the “zero tolerance” policy to criminally prosecute any immigrant who enters the country without authorization. That led to the widely criticized practice of separating children from their parents at the border, which spurred a humanitarian and political crisis for Mr. Trump.

    LOL!! I like it. Economic sanctions, Judy's Plan B, are soon coming, you wait and see. Mexico will be hopping like a Mexican jumping bean to cooperate and stop this nonsense. I have no problem with "redirecting" Mexico's "aid" to paying for the deportation from Mexico of illegal aliens from other countries headed to the US. They can do it a lot cheaper and a lot faster than we can.

    Trump's been holding back their "aid". Funny!!

    Actually, the article doesn't say anything about the money being redirected from Mexico's aid. It also doesn't say anything about "aid" money being held back from Mexico.

    You see "PAYING THEM" as a sanction?

    So Mexico will have a new tourist programs paid for by the United States. Now Colombians, Nicaraguans, and Guatemalans can go to Mexico, try to get into America, and if they don't make it, the Mexican government, financed by the U.S., will give them a free ride home, saving them the expenses so they can get a head-start on the next attempt
