Top 10 Ways To Make Mexico Pay To Build America's Border Wall

(In response to criticism of the Trump immigration plan)

1. We could stop giving Mexico over 200 million in foreign aid per year and rescind China's 25 million in foreign aid, and use those funds on walls and fences to keep illegal aliens from both countries from crossing our Southern border.

2. According to the Government Accountability Office (GAO), our Border Patrol seizes about 32.5 million dollars in drug money leaving the US each year and this is estimated to be less than 1% of the money going over the border. We could use seized drug monies to fund the wall.

3. By 2006 the Bush administration had stopped fining all businesses that hire illegals. We could generate millions of dollars in funds for the families of Americans killed by illegal aliens and the border wall by fining businesses that hire illegals as current US laws say we should! Sec. 274A of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) and 8 U.S.C. 1324a, makes it unlawful for any person knowingly to hire, recruit or refer for a fee any alien not authorized to work. An employer that violates these laws can face penalties of:
· $250 to $2,000 fine for each unauthorized individual;
· $2,000 to $5,000 for each employee if the employer has previously been in violation; or
· $3,000 to $10,000 for each individual if the employer was subject to more than one cease and desist order.

4. We should tell the 12-20 million illegal immigrants in America they are to begin leaving immediately and any that we have to detain and deport will have any and all assets seized to compensate the American taxpayers for the cost of their arrest, deportation, and any social services they drained while in the US. Tell illegal aliens you will seize their belongings, assets, cash, and bank accounts and watch them run for the border on their own! Illegal aliens leaving America on their own would dissuade many future illegals from even trying to enter illegally. The US could set up special points of exit where illegals could leave America and avoid asset seizures and the 10 year ban penalty.

5. The Treasury Department’s Inspector General determined that $4.2 billion was paid in 2010 to illegal aliens in the form of tax returns and Earned Income Tax Credits. Use federal databases to determine who is illegal in America and immediately seize any withholding taxes from their paychecks and designate those funds to go to the family members of illegal alien victims, and the border wall. Stop all Earned Income Credit IRS refunds going to illegal aliens to save millions!

6. Studies indicate that over half of all illegal immigrants in America are already receiving some form of welfare and that this consumption rate will more than triple if they are ever given citizenship or legal status. The Federation of Americans for Immigration Control estimates illegals drain over 100 Billion dollars in taxpayer resources each year. An Executive Order should be signed by our President ordering a halt to all welfare, housing, food, tuition, and non emergency healthcare assistance to illegal alien foreign nationals. Illegal aliens are draining billions of dollars in taxpayer resources that could easily be cut off and conserved for Americans and the wall.

7. All visa fees should be increased but we should apply the greatest visa fee price increases to countries like Mexico, China, and Brazil which contribute the largest amounts of people to our illegal immigrant populations. If your home nation is responsible for a significant portion of America's illegal immigration problem then your citizens pay higher visa fees to help America build walls and fences, and to deport your citizens back home.

8. Tariffs should be applied to products coming in from our largest illegal alien contributor nations like China and Mexico, and the monies raised from these tariffs should be given to immigration and border law enforcement agencies, the border wall project, and the victims of illegal immigrant crimes.

9. Apply a 5% tax on all remittances to Mexico and other nations each year applied to wire transfers made by banks. It is estimated that Mexican remittances are 20 Billion dollars per year alone. At 5% this will generate 100 million dollars per year for wall construction funds.

10. Illegal immigrants caught committing further crimes in America or caught reentering America after deportation should be assigned to work camps set up and supervised by Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio. These prisoners should be made to wear pink underwear and work hard labor constructing the walls and fences to keep other illegal immigrants like themselves out. When word spreads around the world that illegally immigrating to the US will land you in a prison work camp run by Joe Arpaio, illegal crossings will plummet and we will save millions of dollars in wall construction costs.
