A Marshall Plan is an amazing idea that would ensure the safety of our neighbors to the south and have a curbing effect on illegal immigration as well as boosting a slacking economy. I always wondered why businesses choose an authoritarian regime with goals of usurping democracy over democratic countries that are less than half the distance away. I am hoping this would mean opening drug interdiction bases manned by American or NATO troops and opening trade routes and re-directing businesses to the south. No plan will work unless you rid these countries of the scourge of drug running. This would also negate any need for tariff wars with China that would take a financial toll on this country. We hold most of the cards, we used to hold all the cards, pretty soon we’ll have the losing hand.
