 GOP Pushes for this INGENIOUS Way to Pay to “BUILD THE WALL”


A new bill is being introduced by a group of House Republicans in the first major push for funding on President Trump’s border wall.  The idea is ingenious and has the ability to collect billions of dollars.

The legislation is being spearheaded by Rep. Mike Rogers (Ala-R) and Rep. Lou Barletta (Penn-R).

Rep. Rogers and Rep. Barletta introduced HR 1813, titled Border Wall Funding Act of 2017 and would impose a 2% tax on all remittances — or wire transfers — sent from residents in the United States to recipients in more than 40 Latin American countries, including Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua and Costa Rica, along with China, India, and many others.

This is a major argument against illegal immigration by many Conservatives and Republicans in that much of the money earned in the U.S. is not used to purchase goods and services in the U.S. but instead sent back to their country of origin to support family members left behind.

Estimates vary, but the amount of money sent back home to relatives by illegals and immigrants could top $130 billion annually. The World Bank estimates remittances from the U.S. at more than $50 billion a year.

A Pew Research Center analysis puts the figure at closer to $133 billion for the year of 2015. By contrast, Pew said that while $133 billion was shipped abroad in 2015, Americans sent only $7 billion back to the U.S. in remittances in 2015.

Mexico is the largest beneficiary of America dollars being sent home with remittances estimating $24 billion alone being sent in US dollars back to Mexico by immigrants and illegals in 2015. As a result of this practice, this is one of Mexico’s top sources of income. Coming in behind Mexico are China and India as number 2 and 3, respectively.  Central American countries also receive a large amount of revenue from American remittances.

America has one of the lowest costs to send money home.  It costs roughly 6% of the payment to send funds. Canada’s rate is double at 12%, with the average being around 8% from the world’s other big economies.

With a 2% tax, this could net more than $2 billion annually if the tax is applied across the board on all monies regardless of who is sending it.  This would also help avoid the left’s possible spin on racial profiling.

Rep. Rogers states –


This bill is simple — anyone who sends their money to countries that benefit from our porous borders and illegal immigration should be responsible for providing some of the funds needed to complete the wall. This bill keeps money in the American economy, and most importantly, it creates a funding stream to build the wall.

President Trump vowed repeatedly that Mexico would foot the bill for the border wall, but the Mexican government has remained defiant in their refusal to do so.  They have repeatedly circumvented American efforts to secure our borders, investing money to assist illegal aliens combating deportation and threatening to unleash cartels across the border.  The Mexican Attorney General even recently arrested for drug trafficking charges near San Diego.

This idea of a remittance tax has already been implemented in Oklahoma.  The state currently imposes a 1% fee on all person-to-person money wire transfers that go outside the state. Taxing remittances are a source of revenue that allows very little if any chance for retribution against Americans by Mexico or other foreign entities.

God Bless.
