….in addition to foreign aid
Former five-term Congressman Tom Tancredo (R-Colo.) knows a thing or two about illegal immigration. In 2003, before most people were focused on the issue, the grandson of legal Italian immigrants introduced the Mass Immigration Reduction Act, which imposed an immigration moratorium, granting legalized status to spouses of U.S. citizens or priority workers. By 2007, Tancredo’s advocacy for strictly enforcing immigration laws was well-known.
Previously, in 2004, he spoke out against the practice of sending cash remittances.
In a recent Breitbart article titled: Stop Remittances to Reduce Illegal Immigration, Improve National Security, Tancredo again calls for a halt to the practice that allows tens of billions of American dollars to routinely be sent to India and China, both of which outpace Mexico — which raked in nearly $24.8 billion in 2015 alone — more money than Mexico makes from oil revenues.
Muslim countries including Egypt, Bangladesh, Libya, Iraq, Syria, Lebanon and Somalia receive incalculable amounts in remittances annually — sent by relatives living in the US. These countries are not benign bystanders. They have longstanding ties to the Muslim Brotherhood, Hamas, PLO and Jihadist groups including al-Qaeda and ISIS affiliates.
This fact-filled Fox News report is five years old, but details the Muslim/Arab nations that routinely vote against the United States in the United Nations, yet still get billions of taxpayer-funded foreign aid.
