Every year there is a staggering amount of money that is funneled back to Mexico from the United States for various reasons and the amount will leave you speechless. There is an estimated $130 BILLION sent to Mexico from relatives working in America. Wouldn’t it be nice if we saw some kind of return on that money?
Thankfully, we may FINALLY see a return on that money.
A group of Republicans just introduced the first major bill to fund President Trump’s border wall. By implementing a simple 2 percent fee on all money Mexicans and other immigrants send back home we could see a $2 billion a year return.
“This bill is simple — anyone who sends their money to countries that benefit from our porous borders and illegal immigration should be responsible for providing some of the funds needed to complete the wall,” Rep. Mike Rogers, Alabama Republican, said in a statement. “This bill keeps money in the American economy, and most importantly, it creates a funding stream to build the wall.”
Mr. Rogers and Rep. Lou Barletta of Pennsylvania are leading the charge which not only provides a return on American money, but also a security feature that America greatly needs.
President Trump has long vowed to make Mexico foot the bill for his border wall, but Mexican authorities have refused. That leaves us without a way to fund the wall. The President has said American taxpayers will pick up the tab but only for now, as he looks into ways to force Mexico to pay up.
This seems logical to me. If these people can profit off of America then they can help America prosper. It is a fair trade in my opinion.
I fully support this bill being passed and I know many Americans will too.
Let us know what you think of this new plan. Comment and Share!
