Payoff for services rendered…
If the idea is to discourage them from coming, isn’t paying off their governments likely to precipitate the governments encouraging this to happen again?

The White House announced $254.6 million in new aid for Central American countries today.
The money will go toward returning unaccompanied minors who travel to the U.S. illegally to their families and fostering youth centered programs in their home countries, the White House said this afternoon.
The assistance to the governments of El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras announced today is in addition to the $130 million in aid the U.S. already provides those countries in economic assistance.
The U.S. has also decided to begin detaining families at the border instead of giving them court dates and releasing them.
The new aid package and the illegal immigration crisis at the U.S. border will be the subject of Vice President Joe Biden’s meetings this afternoon in Guatemala with senior representatives of the Central American countries.
