Could a New Marshall Plan Stop Trump's Brutal Border Policy?

Do we need a new Marshall Plan for Central America?

Donald Trump is intentionally making the refugee situation on the border worse in an effort to bolster political power. If the crisis is bad, in the news, Trump's supporters and xenophobes will vote for him again to correct the problem

But what if progressives took that power away from him? In the past, the Marshall plan was used to strengthen the neighbors to the United States and it could be used to fix the problems refugees are facing today. If conditions in central and South American countries are so bad, perhaps fixing those conditions would be a first step in ending the migrant crisis and ending Trump's brutal border policy.
