Silly (I'm no proponent of the wall boondoggle), but devilishly ingenious.

True. They deport more than we do when illegals come in from South America across the Mexican border. I posted that on a thread here. They deport who they catch and refuse refugees by the bus loads trying to come to Mexico from South America. They claim they just don't have enough resources to let them in. Well, welcome to the club. Maybe they should think about a wall to the south.

The Mexican president has a lot of nerve complaining about Trump and the wall. They send back more than we do.

U.S. deports more than Mexico. Your stat just speaks to central americans other than Mexicans. And Mexico started this about five years ago when the US asked for their assistance in stopping central americans from crossing Mexico into the US.

Why not continuous, Trump, Trump, Trump?

The seasonal workers he legally imports to do the dirty work at his hotels/ golf courses/ wineries, instead of hiring US people, get it.

You think that a rich guy like Trump actually hires manual laborers himself?

$113 billion a year savings would just be the beginning as illegals are deported or self-deport when we start e-verifying and cutting them off the public assistance teat. The savings will more than cover the cost. Admission fee will also work to reimburse for the tax dollars spent.

LEGAL. That is all that matters. And, "dirty" work? Americans also do those jobs but can't afford to do them only seasonally. Seriously, do some googling regarding foreign seasonal workers!

We could change the laws to say we behead all trespassers and put that on the Mexican side of the wall. I would contribute to that! I am sick of it! It the laws were even stricter and enforced, we can stop it!

I am really sick of reading about the rapes of our children by these illegal aliens. Not sure why so many of them are pedophilies, a disproportional number for sure although in some parts of Mexico, I have read that the age of sexual consent is 12 years old. Do you really want their culture taking over in our country? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ages_o..._North_America We need the Wall to keep them out! We are talking about the cost of our future and whether it is worth the investment.

Whatever it takes to get the job done!

Where do you get 113 billion a year? They have been many non-partisan studies that show a modest net gain or loss. None will be completely accurate because in the end you are talking about non-documented people.

Illegal Immigration a $113 Billion a Year Drain on U.S. Taxpayers


I know you will try to claim that this is a biased source but note where their stats come from.

I guess I am missing it. The only link to any report is a report on the same site as the article, i.e. FAIR. I see no footnotes to other research, or government agency studies. In fact in one paragraph it discounts taxes paid by immigrants stating they would have been paid anyway with legal residents. That is a big assumption. It is kind of like when people decry the number of jobs lost to Mexico due to Nafta. They assume that those jobs would have stayed in the US and not go to somewhere like China.
