Default Trump administration proposes $18 billion wall bordering Mexico

What's gonna happen? Pass? Fail? Somethin' else?

Trump administration proposes $18 billion wall bordering Mexico – TheBlaze

Quote:
A proposal by Customs and Border Protection calls for extending the existing barrier by 316 miles by September 2027. When complete, the wall would cover a total of 970 miles or about one-half of the border, the Associated Press reported. Additionally, the project calls for 407 miles of secondary fencing. The information was given to media by an official who did not want to be identified because the plan has not been made public, the report states.

There are a number of ways to get Mexico to pay for the wall such as a surcharge on remittances.

Quote:
Mexican migrants sent home a record $2.643 billion in October, a 19 percent increase compared to the same month last year, following a sharp depreciation of the peso during the month, central bank data showed on Friday.

Remittances in October were the highest for any month in data going back to 1995, eclipsing a previous record of $2.638 billion in October 2008.

In Democrat speak the wall is not a cost to the taxpayer, it is an investment. As the US economy flourishes under Trump's policies the US will see an upswing in illegal immigration. By reducing the inflow of illegal immigration from the southern border the wall will allow taxpayers to avoid the increased costs of the low to no skill illegal immigrants from Mexico and central America.

Why is that RS? you want them here illegally, what's stopping you from taking in a few? Or offering to pay more in taxes to care for Illegals.

Maybe you can get together with the other lefties that say they want open borders and give back all the extra money you will get from the TRUMP economy.

I say that tongue in cheek, because I know that absolutely NO liberal will EVER put his money or labors, where his mouth is. It's always on the backs of someone else.

You have an incorrect view of 'liberals'. Honestly, do you even know any democrats or just go with that you hear on talk radio?

Building a wall wont actually do anything to stop illegal immigration. Its a waste of money. and 18 Billion won't build hardly any of the wall anyways. Its just for a photo op so Trump can say he delivered, but like everything with Trump, its all a con.

seriously, Immigration is a tough complicated subject, building a wall is such a stupid thing to do.
