Modernizing Foreign Assistance Network: President Trump’s Attempt to Block Aid to Central America Reflects Ineffective Use of American Resources, Influence
In a statement delivered on behalf of the Modernizing Foreign Assistance Network (MFAN), Co-Chairs George Ingram, Lester Munson, and Tessie San Martin express concern over President Trump’s decision to block aid to Honduras, Guatemala, and El Salvador. The co-chairs state, “U.S. foreign assistance is a tool that advances American interests and values by working directly in communities on issues that grow their economy, improve safety and health, and strengthen their infrastructure. … To be most effective, U.S. foreign aid should be directed to where the need is greatest and where it can have the most impact” (4/2).
