From what I understand the people fleeing these countries are doing so because they are escaping violence and persecution. Why have we been sending money to violent governments or governments that allow violence to occur in the first place.

Mostly because they support our global military/intelligence operations and keep our sworn enemy Iran in check
Since the start of the Jewish state, we pledged our assistance and support to the one M/E nation that is always under attack and always under threat by extremists and terrorists
But again, Israel isn't a problem for this country and I have no problem helping nations that help us and help themselves. Israel isn't sending us "caravans" of illegal immigrants who believe they are entitled to come into our country and force their culture down our throats
Why the pivot to Israel?
