Mexico leftist's pitch to Trump: growth, not walls to fix migration
Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, the favorite to win Mexico’s July 1 presidential election, said he hoped to craft a deal with Trump similar to the “Alliance for Progress”, an aid plan launched in 1961 by then-president John F. Kennedy to help Latin America.
Kennedy’s 1961 “Alliance for Progress” was a multi-billion dollar program that set out to improve democracy and living standards in Latin America. It had limited success.
So why would the US invest money to attract companies down to south/central America to stem immigration instead of simply enforcing our laws here to keep illegals out? In the grand scheme of things whats to benefit OUR tax payers, ESPECIALLY when the article even stated the last time this was tried it was pretty much a multi BILLION dollar bust?
