Letter: Proposal to curb illegal immigration

As I see it, none of the countries the majority of illegal immigrants come from are suffering any consequences for their lack of securing their own borders. So, the plan I propose would help to alleviate that problem.

The countries with the largest amount of illegal immigrants crossing the U.S.A. border are Mexico, El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala. These countries receive large amounts of foreign aid from the U.S. each year and a percentage is for what is called “Peace and Security.” For 2018, Mexico gets $87.66 million, El Salvador gets $46.3 million, Honduras gets $67.8 million and Guatemala gets $80.66 million. This info comes from the Foreign Aid Assistance website.

What should be done is that each time an illegal is caught coming into the U.S., their country of origin would have deducted $15,000 from its Foreign Aid; each time from then on that same person is caught coming to the U.S. deduct $25,000 for him or her from Foreign Aid. This would not apply for children who are with their parents.

Also, a person caught coming from Honduras to the U.S., if they come by land, then they must pass through Guatemala and Mexico, and because these countries did not enforce their border and prohibit this person or persons from the crossing of their borders on their way to the U.S., then Mexico and Guatemala each will have $2,500 deducted from their Foreign Aid, so if any person or persons who crosses over any of these countries’ borders to get top the U.S. and is caught shall have $2,500 deducted from the country whose border was crossed and no provable help was used to prevent them from entering the U.S.

Since all would have to come through Mexico, then Mexico would pay a hefty price, which would help pay for the wall.

You can say this is a restocking or returning fee, just like you pay when you are charged at some stores for returning an item. This would not apply to anyone crossing at the U.S. border properly.

I believe by doing this, the leaders of these countries would understand that not policing their own borders will cost them the Foreign Aid which they need and would preent, we hope, a lot of illegal immigration from happening.
