Trump Releases Exactly How He Would Force Mexico To Pay For Wall – This Will Work

Trump to Cut Federal Government

Donald J. Trump, the billionaire business and current GOP front-runner, has demanded that the United States build a wall along its southern border with Mexico and make Mexico pay for it. It has been the resounding message from Trumps campaign. However, even Mexican officials have said they would not pay for the wall and don’t think the United States should build one. They have also added that there is no way to make Mexico pay for the wall.

After months of people blasting Trump for his assumption that Mexico would build the wall, Trump has sent a memo to The Washington Post which includes a detailed plan of how he would get Mexico to pay for the wall. Trump states that he “would threaten to change a rule under the USA Patriot Act anti-terrorism law to cut off a portion of the funds sent to Mexico through money transfers, commonly known as remittances. The threat would be withdrawn if Mexico made ‘a one-time payment of $5-10 billion’ to pay for the border wall.”

So far, it has been estimated that Mexican nationals living around the world have sent back $25 billion back to Mexico in 2015 alone. However, that number is not only comprised of money coming from the United States and includes illegal and legal immigrants. Either way, the money transferred into Mexico is considered one of the most vital parts of Mexico’s economy competing with the revenue resulting from oil and natural gas which they have much of.

Donald J. Trump has also suggested raising the funds for building a wall through Mexico including increased border crossing fees, trade tariffs, and visa cancellations. So far, the border is estimated to cost around $8 billion. However, all the cash that flows back and forth across the border may make up that amount in time.
