As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

New Way to Pay for the Wall: Tax Mexico $2,000 Per Illegal Immigrant

I dunno. This might get Mexico to crack down pretty quickly.

Basically, the idea is that you remove $2K from Mexico’s foreign aid for every illegal caught.

According to Paul Bedard at the Washington Examiner:

A border lawmaker had drawn up a plan to pay for the wall in part by fining Mexico and other countries $2,000 for every illegal immigrant caught crossing into the United States.

Arizona Rep. Andy Biggs, who has made is mark on Washington in just his first term, is pushing a plan that includes the tax on illegals and other ways to pay for the border wall demanded by President Trump.

With up some 400,000 illegal immigrants being apprehended at the border yearly, his tax could raise $800 million a year. Immigration groups claim that an equal amount of illegal immigrants get into the U.S. annually.

As Biggs notes in a statement, it’s a sham that a Republican-controlled Congress failed to enact significant spending for President Trump’s border wall. I guess they weren’t listening during the campaign. Which is exactly the problem with the GOP establishment.

  1. IMO, the Feds can buy every illegal alien a first class plane ticket back to Mexico with that $800 million. The illegals cost us billions in welfare spending, health costs, incarcerating their criminals, and trying to teach their Spanish speaking children.
    Spend the money on return trips, period.

  2. How about taxing the remittances. Legal or illegal send about 29 billion(USD) in 2017. Taxing them at 1% surcharge would yield about 290M. Of course a bigger surcharge could equal the aforementioned plan above. Let’s do both.
    Why do they get foreign aid anyway?

    I swear, some days I wonder if you have to be a space alien to get elected to Congress as a Republican.

    I mean, pardon my French, but exactly how human can they be? By all appearances, they seem to have no brains, no backbone, no heart, and no balls.

    And their heads and their asses appear to be interchangeable, too.

  4. I have been posting the “Answer to Mexico’s Invasion of America, and allowing their nation to be the ‘pass thru’ onto the USA for Years. Weeks ago I sent the SAME solutions I’ve written about to the Whitehouse, so glad to see this is getting attention.

    Only I said for “Each Illegal and Children they use to come here with..America should charge Mexico $50,000 a head, and take the amt. OUT of the Aid we give Mexico. Also, ANY
    person/business who employs Illegals-SAME FINE

    Mexico is allowing them to come thru their So.
    border, and it appears that Evil Soros is using his groups to FUND their coming into our Republic…Someone needs to investigate him, and ‘his planned Invasion of America” that he’s tried to “Bring Down FOR YEARS.”

    P.S. Any illegals getting here, need to be finger printed, pix’s taken/& any info, in case when they are RETURNED to Mexico-who foots the bill to get them back to So.America, along with America FINING THEM, & stopping Aid by DEDUCTING that $50,000 per ea.
    Illegal, then IF they returned, it goes to a $100,000 per illegal.

    BEEN POSTING THE “SOLUTION TO ILLEGAL INVASION
    FOR YEARS, AND GLAD IT’S FINALLY MAKING THE ROUNDS OF “GOOD WAY TO HANDLE AMERICA’S BEING INVADED. JO

  5. And the great thing is this won’t require a vote in Congress. Trump can put it in the next budget he submits for FY 2020. I agree that taxing remittances is also a great idea. Unfortunately the Republican establishment who are bought and paid for by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce will just increase the aid in the final budget.

    We should also station the army along the border. This would not violate the Posse Comitatus act because they would be repelling an invasion of the U.S.

  6. Sorry I have been out of touch… I’m back, and this topic is perfect….The old adage, money talks, bullshit walks…certainly applies here.

    Mexico has to own up to their role in this fiasco, and tapping their wallet each time will bring them to the table.

    Love it.

  7. The lefties will spin it to say that “Trump cuts humanitarian aid for the sick and needy.” After all, they need to keep the narrative that he’s a mean man and wants to kill off any “race” that is not his own while making himself and his buddies filthy rich. Yaawwwn.
