Default Trump says would raise visa fees to pay for Mexican border wall

Trump says would raise visa fees to pay for Mexican border wall | Reuters


This idea has its good and bad points imho


Quote:
Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump would increase fees on some Mexican visas and all border crossing cards as part of a broader plan to force Mexico to pay for a wall along the southern U.S. border.

Trump, the frontrunner in a crowded Republican field, has made immigration a central plank of his campaign. On NBC's "Meet the Press," he said he would deport all undocumented immigrants and rescind U.S. President Barack Obama's executive orders on immigration.

The orders, if enacted, could protect as many as 5 million undocumented immigrants from deportation.
Quote:
In a policy paper issued on Sunday, Trump said he would increase fees on temporary visas for Mexican chief executives, diplomats and North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) workers if Mexico does not agree to pay for the wall.

The NAFTA agreement of 1994 eliminated most tariff and other barriers to free trade and investment between the United States, Canada and Mexico. It permits the temporary cross-border movement of business travelers within the region.

Trump said he would also impound all remittance payments derived from illegal wages and increase fees at ports of entry from Mexico. Foreign aid cuts and tariffs would also be considered.
Quote:
"The Mexican government has taken the United States to the cleaners," he said. "They are responsible for this problem, and they must help pay to clean it up."
hmmm...sounds good but has implications far reaching. what say you?

Good idea. I think there should be a Congressional requirement that prior to consideration, any proposed bill must have an amendment attached explaining how it is going to be funded.

Don't like it...for two reasons...

1) Punishing the people that are trying to come here legally...That actually gives them MORE incentive to bypass the legal system...

2) The whole idea of true conservatism is to cut spending from frivolous and unnecessary programs...Cutting some of these programs would pay for border defense and no one gets hit with extra fees...
