The Triangle Countries

trump just announced he is cutting roughly 1 billion dollars in aid to the triangle countries. the money was aimed at minimizing the need for illegal immigration to the United States. Weaponry police training and economic development were all part of the package. Will this cut off in funding stick? Who knows.. While it's easy to infer that this may have some effect on Belize what that affect is is difficult to guess.

Well I'm am all for some kind of cut off! Living in Texas it has gotten so bad that we are tired of the influx of criminals! There are killings daily performed by illegal immigrants on innocent people. Something has got to change and Democrats need to pull their heads out of their asses and stop just hating Trump! This issue isn't about Trump!! Its about the American people and the protection we deserve as citizens!

Your goal to drive more illegal immigrants into the US is probably not smart. Making pussy grabbing great again.

Oh please!! Don't be an ass! I don't condone acts of "pussy grabing" but I really don't condone the murdering of innocent people on a daily basis! You probably don't have a problem with it, or their policy on killing children as well. There is a way to make this all work and one is to reform our immigration laws. This isn't a free for all country and there isn't a country on the face of the earth that is. For you to think otherwise shows your idiocracy of life. I'm tired of people like you that think your know everything and people that don't think the same are stupid or have no real grasp on life. Go find yours! This site should just be for information on Belize, not yours or Dr. Allen's platform for political spew! Ugh

actually if you pay attention you started it. The point is the triangle countries will have less money for economic development, they will have less money for police training and equipment. This may or may not affect Belize. Trying to argue the obvious is silly. trump suckered the ignorant, it is that simple.

You raise a good point about how serious a mistake it might be to eliminate funds that help countries like Belize in the Western Hemisphere maintain themselves. It is really a tiny fraction compared to the billions US sends to other nations for support. If the goal is to reduce migration for opportunity (the vast majority of immigration), it makes sense to shift some of our investment to our own side of the Atlantic to stabilize Central American and Caribbean nations, and encourage their citizens' desire to stay home.

As far as is Known Belize is not sending migrants in these mass caravans,, It's people are not running from their homes in fear for their lives, and to protect their children.
. This discussion would be better served on the forums of those Countries who's people are.

as of 2015 about 50,000 Belizeans are in the US, not sure what percent are illegal. About 5% of those in Belize are Guats. To pretend that the aid cut off doesnt affect Belize is just ignorant

I just wonder how much of that 500 billion/annum found its way into the offshore bank accounts of the leaders.

What you say is true but the real question is why is trump driving central Americans north.

He isn't. The threat of the wall and border closings is driving them, plus certain entities are funding them. Remember, Democrats want new voters.

actually he is. Cutting the funding to the triangle is just one example. He cancelled CAMP which is also driving people north.

But why are they all coming now? Mexico has offered many asylum but they refuse. Because of all the freebie stuff in the US - many resources which should go toward our own poor and homeless first. The rampant medieval disease in CA is extremely disturbing.

I explained why they are coming now. Many want to join their families which CAMP was addressing. Many are coming now to beat the wall.

CLK - Please go away. You have never been to Belize. the Belizeans in the US go legally (The US actually has Belizeans serving in our military). Belize is a very different situation than Gautemala and El Salvador, which is where the vast majority of these people are coming from (and some from Honduras). From someone who lives here (and not in the US and came toBelize once for a few days several years ago), I think I have a much better perspective on this (BE HONEST AND TELL EVERYONE RIGHT NOW HOW MANY DAYS YOU HAVE EVER BEEN IN BELIZE IN YOUR ENTIRE LIFE). STOP IT!

The Belize Illegal numbers in Belize is very small, actually a lot less than the number of Illegal europeans. They come in by air and overstay the visa's. none of this has anything to do with the numbers fleeing their countries in fear of their liives.
I am glad you are enjoying your postings your to annoy actual expats as you say "popping bubbles" It is not enjoyable to anyone else.
