      You need a path to citizenship and that path leads back to Mexico (or wherever) because you are a citizen there already.

        Not particularly because most are American citizens and support the principles which this country was founded upon. I will say I do have an issue with the Irish and PR flags too when not willing to become an American.

        An illegal alien who is demanding the benefits of a citizen but has their devotion to their homeland I find a little hypocritical. Their cries ring a little hollow.

          Oliver does a good job with this subject and the many directions of Trump on the issue here.

            Maybe when 1200 illegals march across the border people will suddenly change their tune?

            According to the U. S. Agency for International Development, roughly a dozen agencies directed roughly $1.6 billion overall in aid to Mexico from 2011 to 2015, the most recent year for which complete data is available.

            The State Department, Defense Department and USAID provided the largest amounts, accounting for 95% of the $338 million in aid in 2015. The remainder included much smaller slivers from the departments of Energy, Labor, Interior, and Health and Human Services, and the Peace Corps, among others.

            Law enforcement and counter-narcotics initiatives accounted for $260 million, while support for justice and legal reforms added up to roughly $10 million, and military aid accounting for another $10 million. The other aid initiatives in 2015 include:


            • $5.7 million for a program to improve the competitiveness of Mexican businesses and to improve “environmental policy management to mitigate climate change and preserve Mexican biodiversity.”

            • $4.4 million to help with implementation of programs to reduce emissions from deforestation and forest degradation.

            • $ 4 million to support Mexican-led efforts to develop and implement a low-emissions development strategy.

            • $4 million for crime and violence prevention.
