Some think a possible solution to the problem of inadequately housed would-be immigrants at the U.S.-Mexico border is to divert a portion of foreign aid to the cause. Not on my dime, please. And were I a member of the U.S. House of Representatives, where taxpayer monies are allocated, I wouldn’t vote to spend foreign-aid funds to house asylum seekers, either. History shows that such an altruistic entitlement program would escalate to an annual expenditure monster that would be difficult to control and impossible to terminate. Ayn Ryan would have a fit.
