It matters because we are still a representative republic and Congress is an equal branch of the Government. Trump is not a king or a dictator, yet. He still needs Congressional approval on budget matters.

The propaganda that leads to posts like that. Question, what conditions are attached to this aid?
Pretty sure it's clear who refused to answer questions.

Very well done President Trump. Why should we give money to the main source of illegals.
Because cutting aid money will make their countries better and stem the flow of migrants looking for a better life....brilliant plan.

So using your logic, sending them MORE money would eliminate illegals. Sounds like extortion to me.
But you must agree that if they have less money it could create more illegals for us to deal with.
If it goes down like that and IF a ton more illegals do come here , do you think the wall would be effective enough or could even be built fast enough before the united states became unstable?
Imagine caravans 10 times the size of this most recent one coming at us in a six months-years time.
I'm going to be optimistic and say that the increase in illegal immigration wont be that high.
Legal immigration from those countries I think will go up more.
