Donald Trump’s plan for a border wall between the U.S. and Mexico may create an impact far beyond that of mere national security.
As scholar and journalists ponder the far-reaching impact of curbing illegal immigration and decreasing the ease of which drug cartels can move product into America, one factor has not been discussed at length due to the increasing vitriol from the left: The economic impact for America. As it turns out, the border wall itself could save us all a whole lot of money
“A new Center for Immigration Studies report suggests that President Donald Trump’s wall along the U.S.-Mexico border could save Americans nearly $64 billion over the next 10 years if it stops half of all expected undocumented immigrants.
“Steven Camarota, the study’s author, joined Cheryl Casone on ‘After the Bell’ Friday to discuss his calculations.
“Camarota, director of research at the Center for Immigration Studies, said an existing body of research estimates the fiscal impact of undocumented immigrants based on their education level, which officials can typically pinpoint.
“‘Once you know the education level of illegal immigrants, you plug it in and you can come up with an estimate,’ Camarota said.
“The study also estimates that each American citizen pays about $75,000 over their lifetime to account for illegal immigration costs.”
We still have yet to hear what any negative impacts of the border wall would be from the mouths of Trump’s opponents, who simply wish to push the globalist, open-border agenda on the sovereignty of the United States.
