house Bill H.R. 1958

Should Homeland Security Offer Financial Aid to Help Foreign Gov’ts Repatriate Their Citizens Who Threaten U.S. National Security?

Argument in favor

Giving known or suspected terrorists’ home countries funds to help them repatriate these dangerous individuals back to their countries of origin will help make the U.S. safer. It is also a more efficient financial solution than the federal government processing, detaining, and deporting them.

Charter flights, be rid of them, bill these countries by decreasing foreign aid payments to them by 1MM per head. That should get attention.

In the form of Free Military buses, trains, and airlift transport to bring them back home. No monetary aid.

Another stupid plan from Trump. It amounts to bribery, or tribute, which we should not pay. Resort to the DUE PROCESS OF LAW. That might be a tad much to expect from this regime, though.

Argument opposed

Congress shouldn’t give the Dept. of Homeland Security or any other agency the authority to give foreign governments financial assistance to repatriate their citizens who’ve been deemed a threat to U.S. national security. They should be processed, detained, and deported through the normal process.

There’s a reason why this bill has No Cosponsors. It’s insane. No money should be spent by any agency to help foreign nations repatriate their terrorists or suspected terrorists. Let’s bribe them to take back their criminals? No. Deal with terrorists here or buy them a ticket home one way. There are too many other problems with this bill as well. A terrorist has had due process. A suspected terrorist has not. Who’s deciding who is a threat or potential threat? Again this seems a targeted effort that is based in bigotry. This seems to be backwards. If you wish to send foreign aid to countries so that they might keep them there safe and well fed, I’d go for that.

Nope. If a foreign individual poses a threat to our national security, kick them out. It's that simple.

Why would we pay money to another country for them to take back a terrorist.

    That’s insanity. No we will not bribe other sovereign nations to take their terrorists. Just process them and deport them like we always have.

    Why should we pay them to take their citizens back? They should pay us the cost of investigating, capturing, and holding them. I was under the impression that the loser pays the fees in a legal case.

    So we are going to pay someone to take their bad guys home? I think a one way plane ticket would work. More humane than just returning the body.

    No! Those countries need to take back their people COD if they've threatened our security. This bill is kind of insane.

    Sounds like a great way for other nations to profit from exporting their troublemakers. If we catch them? $$$ If we don't? They're still gone.... Win/win for having porous borders.

    Providing financial aid to foreign countries is the responsibility of the State Department. How about the different departments of our government working together instead of collecting their own little empires.

    Every Republican is complaining that foreign countries get to much money from the US now, and now they want to give them more to do our job ??? Good Grief. Ridiculous. Congress shouldn’t give the Dept. of Homeland Security or any other agency the authority money for a person deemed a threat to U.S. national security, that’s ridiculous. They should be processed, detained, and deported through the normal process.
