Border Wall Would Pay For Itself By Cutting Welfare Use By Illegal Immigrants

DC: President Donald Trump has repeatedly said Mexico would foot the bill for his proposed wall along the southwest border, but the barrier could end up paying for itself by saving the U.S. treasury billions in welfare payments.

Estimates for building a solid physical barrier along the U.S.-Mexico border range from $18 to $25 billion, depending on the type and distance of the wall. Once constructed, though, the barrier would save several times that amount by reducing the number of illegal border crossers who end up on welfare rolls, according to Steven Camarota, the research director at the Center for Immigration Studies.  read more

  2. Unreported and under analyzed is the cost of psycho wards that are reopening north of the border in a triggered response to a wall that otherwise would have no effect if a democrat done it.

    The cost of those wards is the downside, the upside is they finally found a home for a sweet ending.

    MAGA!

  3. Just the cost of dealing with illegal drugs in our country will begin to ebb. From the cost of laws, enforcement, detention, courts, public defenders, loss of life and productivity and their effect on families/children (and all the ripple costs associated with those), imprisonment, to parole, and on and on and on it goes. How much do all those things cost? It’s almost impossible to measure, but it’s a disproportional burden to the U.S. based on where the drugs are coming from.
