Trump's wall would pay for itself in 3 years, end services to illegals

Even if President Trump's border wall cost the highest estimation of $16 billion, it would save that amount in just the first three years of operation by eliminating the lifetime cost to taxpayers for letting 170,000 slip in every year, according to a new analysis.

The authoritative Center for Immigration Studies Thursday crunched the numbers in a new analysis and found that even if the wall failed to stop the bulk of illegals, it would still pay for itself in a decade by cutting welfare, education, and other associated lifetime costs to federal, state and local taxpayers to care for undocumented immigrants.


  1. Just cleaning up the filth and garbage, abandoned property and yes dead bodies they leave scattered across the border regions will! Cost millions of their own. These people are slovenly to the extreme.

    1. Although I love Baja and have camped there many times for months, you know you're crossed the border once you start seeing discarded diapers on the side of the road.

  2. There are so many ways to pay for the stupid wall. It's not so expensive compared with the insane budget of this leviathan empire we live under.

    I have an idea: Bring all the dang troops home, close the foreign bases, all of them, and only patrol US waters like a normal country.

    Imagine how much we'd then save. If China then dominates parts of the world, well, have fun being an empire. Empire is expensive.

    Currently China enjoys a major trade advantage and few costs of empire. As a result, China is growing stronger.

    Perhaps we have to keep bases in S. Korea and Japan, but I really believe a peace agreement should be possible if we pulled out otherwise, allowing China to do whatever the heck it wishes to do. If China starts conquering neighboring countries, then Europe will end trade. And then China's economy would collapse. China just can't afford to go berserk. America's protection isn't necessary.

    1. Trump is 100% correct. We should try and be friendly with Putin and stay away from his realm as he should ours.
