How to build the wall and reduce taxes

Big Money: In a press conference with the President, Democratic leaders in the House and Senate, Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer, declared that a $5 billion border wall is a waste of money. It’s nothing for the Democrats to approve $150 billion in spending and send it all to Iran, but when it comes to doing something for the safety and security for the people of the United States, it’s a “waste of money.”

And, according to a 2017 cost analysis by the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR), illegal immigration costs U.S. taxpayers $155 billion annually. If the U.S. built a stronger border wall and enforced immigration laws, then the wall would pay for itself almost immediately and begin saving the country tens of billions of dollars each year.

The amount that illegal immigrants pay into the system at the federal level is a meager $15,447,897,700 and $3,520,960,000 at the state and local level. After doing the math, illegal immigration imposes a net fiscal burden of (115,894,597,664)USD.
