Latest weather balloon to be floated around is the possibility of U.S. taxpayer checks to pay would-be illegals in Central America to stay home.
According to a report from Reuters:
WASHINGTON (Reuters) -The United States is considering a conditional cash transfer program to help address economic woes that lead migrants from certain Central American countries to trek north, as well as sending COVID-19 vaccines to those countries, a senior White House official told Reuters on Friday.
The potential program would be targeted at people in the Northern Triangle region of Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador, Roberta Jacobson, the White House’s southern border coordinator, told Reuters in an interview, without saying who exactly would receive cash.
Kind of a stimulus check incentive plan for foreign nationals on the promise that they’ll not break into our country illegally, but instead live in their homelands for awhile, maybe as long as the cash lasts? It’s a typical liberal idea of throwing cash at a problem instead of solving it.
