WOW! This right here is why this man needs to be President.
For his whole campaign, Trump has preached and promised a border wall with Mexico to help alleviate the influx of illegal immigrants from Mexico and from other countries trying to get in via that border. Well up until now, Trump has never outlined how that plan would work. Now we have documented proof on how it will not only work, but how Mexico will pay for it.
This is sheer brilliance!
The Republican presidential candidate’s campaign said in a memo that if elected in November, Trump would use a U.S. anti-terrorism law to cut off money transfers from illegal immigrants to Mexico unless it made a one-time payment of $5 billion to $10 billion for the wall.
Trump’s pledge to build the wall along the nearly 2,000-mile (3,200-km) U.S.-Mexico border has been a much-touted highlight of his platform targeting illegal immigration in the United States. Mexico has rejected paying for the wall. It is unclear how much the wall would cost, and such a project would be rife with legal and political hurdles.
“On day 1,” a Trump administration would propose a rule mandating companies such as Western Union Co (WU.N) to require customers to provide documentation of their legal status in the United States, the memo said.
“Mexico will immediately protest,” it said, but if the country pays for the wall, Trump would drop the remittance plan, according to the memo, which was dated March 31 but made public on Tuesday.
“It’s an easy decision for Mexico,” his campaign said, adding the country receives about $24 billion a year in remittances from Mexican nationals in the United States, most of them in the country illegally.
That is incredible! What do you think of this plan? Do you support it? Let’s hear it in the comments!
