The Pakistani government erected a fence along its porous border with Afghanistan to combat terrorism, drug smuggling, and illegal immigration.

Although foreign aid from America ceased in 2018, for 17 years the United States reimbursed Pakistan by the billion for counter-terrorism operations in addition to paying the operating costs of the Pakistan military where it fought the Taliban and al-Qaeda. 

American officials scrutinizing the payments later estimated up to 70 percent of U.S. financial assistance was misspent. 

Despite this malfeasance, we couldn't find a single Democrat who spoke out against Pakistan's decision to defend its sovereignty.
