Pompeo testified in the House on Wednesday about US funding for programs to reduce migration. While it did not say how much funding was at stake, about $500 million was allocated past year.

I'm not playing games.

There has been a huge increase in asylum seekers fleeing violence in El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala.

"No money goes there anymore".

"We were giving them 500 million USA dollars". This comes after Trump declared a national emergency to justify redirecting money earmarked for the military to pay for building a wall at the border.
We speak with John Carlos Frey, award-winning investigative reporter and "PBS NewsHour" special correspondent who has reported extensively on immigration and recently traveled with the first migrant caravan from Central America to the U.S. -Mexico border.

The money that Trump has threatened to cut is part of an initiative started under former President Barack Obama that sends aid to Central America for development and security initiatives. Those in favor of terminating the program argued that it was not achieving the anticipated results.

Mulvaney, echoing the President's sentiments, said that "Honduras could do more".

The United States is cutting off aid to the Northern Triangle, otherwise known as the Central American countries of El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras, the State Department told CNN Saturday, one day after President Donald Trump said they had "set up" migrant caravans for entry into the United States. Honduran officials disputed these reports. Because they have not done anything for us.

"We are beyond the breaking point", U.S. Customs and Border Protection Deputy Commissioner Robert Perez said in an interview on Friday.

But a border shutdown would disrupt tourism and US-Mexico trade that totaled $612 billion previous year, according to the US Census Bureau. We are witnessing the real-time dissolution of the immigration system. The three nations are where most of the migrants on the U.S. southern border come from.

"Instead of doing our part to help stabilize the situation in the Northern Triangle and stem the flow of children and refugees to our borders, President Trump reportedly wants to make matters worse by blocking resources for programs that get to the root causes of this humanitarian crisis", Menendez said, indicating that members of Congress may try to block the action.

As the statement from the State Department indicated, Congress will be involved in making permanent cuts to foreign aid.
