Government money is not required to build the wall. A private bond issue would be repaid from money saved. See #5 below... MAGA
President Trump's team is brilliant and building the Border Wall will be the smartest and greatest investment ever made by the USA government.!!! Forget repayment by Mexico and ignore a tax. Besides the carnage from drug pouring in, look at these costs.
1] The 2011 Martin & Ruark "The Fiscal Burden of Illegal Immigration on US Taxpayers" "estimates the annual costs of illegal immigration at the federal, state and local level to be about $113 Billion; nearly $29 Billion at the federal level and $84 Billion at the state and local level”.
Today’s and future costs are significantly greater.
2] The $113 Billion did not include the cost of humans and illicit drugs trafficking, lost citizen’s wages, the society’s drug users and crime victims nor positive benefit factors as less crime from repeat deported criminals, safer streets and communities.
3] The recent MIT and the anti-Trump Washington Post’s fact checker estimated the wall cost could be as high as $25 to $41 Billion for the entire border length.
4] Reducing the annual costs by 10%, the worse-case Wall Cost would be repaid within 2 to 4 years !!!
5] When did any government (or any financial adviser) make an investment with a 25% to 50% return within the first year followed by that annuity for life?
6] It would be just a bonus if Mexico made any repayment
7] Even I would invest in a limited 5% bond to be repaid in within 10 years from the above savings. That bond issue would generate too much money if made available.
