I agree we should help our neighbors. But one long term goal could be discussed. If we are going to keep spending our tax dollars out of our pockets. Why not discuss with these countries the possibility of becoming part of the United States? The relationship could be the same as we have with Puerto Rico. Then we could bring in the necessary law enforcement to restore order and eliminate the criminal organizations. Thus going even father to the roots of the problems. The same case could me made to Mexico and South American countries.
