It's not the first time NE Florida Congressman Ted Yoho has called for an end or suspension of foreign aid.
The Gainesville Republican is calling for an end to U.S. aid to Mexico amid an influx of illegal immigration at the border.
“Mexico should not be accepting American generosity with one hand and covering their eyes to the situation at the border with the other," said Yoho. He is a member of the Foreign Affairs Committee and on Thursday announced his legislation.
"The House of Representatives controls the ‘purse strings’ and if the Executive Branch refuses to address this crisis, the House of Representatives should act. In addition to us securing our border, Mexico should be securing theirs. While Mexico, as a sovereign nation, is free to act how they want---their negligence should not be rewarded with our foreign aid. Our unsecured border is a national security situation and we need to act now.”
