Focus on Central America

I am troubled by the lack of enforcement of our southern borders and in particular of the stream of children coming from the violent Central American countries through Mexico.

We supply millions of dollars of munitions and arms to the bloody combatants in the Middle East who have savaged each other for centuries, and will continue their slaughter that their religions seem to accept. Why not spend this money in Central America to end the violence there, which I understand is the main reason for this giant exodus? This would be a humanitarian thing to do that would have long-term advantages for them as well as for us.

And to encourage Mexico to help stop traffic through their country, how about stopping our corporations from relocating to Mexico?
