Trump Finally Explains How He Would Force Mexico to Pay for the Border Wall

Since the beginning of his campaign, Donald Trump’s critics have had no trouble picking apart his border wall plan. Specifically, his plan to make Mexico pay for the wall has been met with doubt, even among many of his supporters. Recently Trump laid out his plan to make Mexico pay for his border wall, and believe it or not, it may be plausible. However, it would require his administration to fiddle with the Patriot Act, or alternatively, declare a state of emergency.

Trump’s plan involves cutting off remittance payments to Mexico. These are the payments that immigrants in America, illegal or otherwise, send back to their families across the border. This would amount to tens of billions of dollars a year until Mexico pays for the wall. These remittance payments generate more money for Mexico than their oil industry, so this would completely devastate their economy.

The question that’s on everyone’s mind, is how could any president find the legal authority to do this? Trump says he could alter a provision of the Patriot Act that regulates a portion of these payments, though many experts doubt this would be legal. Other tactics would include raising trade tariffs, raising the cost of border crossing cards, and cancelling visas.

If for whatever reason he can’t pull that off, he could always declare a state of emergency in regards to illegal immigration. Under the International Emergency Economic Powers Act, the president could say that illegal immigration is a threat to public health or national security, and issue an executive order to halt all payments to Mexico.

    The Wall 2016

    • Smarty

      Just something to think about…..walls work both ways. They keep you IN too…..

      • Most Americans would never think to leave via the frontier.

      • JETJACKEL

        So? Who wants to go to Mexico? Apparently even the Mexicans don’t.

    • Razedbywolvs

      Patriot act is gone, It’s the “Freedom act” now and building the wall is a stupid simplistic almost absurd idea to stop imagination.
      There has never been a wall big enough to keep out the jews.

      • Mary

        Ever heard of the Berlin Wall? That kept people in and out or they got shot on sight.

        • Razedbywolvs

          Were is that wall?

          • Mary

            You never heard of the Berlin Wall? Seriously? It divided East and West Berlin. The Soviets had the east and the Allies had the West. East Berlin and East Germany were communist. Many Berliners tried to escape over the wall but were shot on sight. However, once you were elderly or of retirement age, you were free to leave east Berlin. Why? Because the commies didn’t want to take care of the elderly. They only wanted a viable labor force (i.e. slave labor).

          • Razedbywolvs

            I have heard of it. What i asked is were is it? Because as i recall the wall was so ineffective that they tore it down in 1990.
            But your story makes it sound way cooler than walking threw the handicap accessible doors in the wall doors in the wall to get a cup of coffee in east Berlin.

          • Mary

            First of all, it’s not a “story”. I was THERE in east Berlin in 1976. It was quite scary and quite real. It’s not there any longer because Pres. Reagan had the guts to tell Gorbachav to tear it down and end communism. Reagan didn’t kiss the butts of our enemies like Obama does.

          • Razedbywolvs

            So a republican told a sovereign nation to tear down it’s boarders and you think that was a good… WTF kind of nationalist are you?

          • Mary

            Are you history illiterate? Do you know anything about the Berlin Wall, the Soviet Union, communism? Anything? You aren’t informed enough for me to debate you. It would be like Winston Churchill debating Pee Wee Herman. Nationalist? Borders? You don’t even know what the heck you’re talking about. The wall wasn’t a border, idiot! It was to imprison the German population by communist Russia! Read a history book!

          • Razedbywolvs

            East Berlin built the wall to keep communist out of the northern part of there country…. ether that was the biggest engendering mistake ever made or that was a boarder.
            So the wall you want to build along the Mexico. Is that to keep them out or to keep us imprison in the communist USA.
            Well were not really debating. I’m asking you questions and your hanging yourself with your own answers. For being the expert on Communism you should know by now that’s a result of you adopting a social Marxist ideology.

          • Mary

            East Berlin did not build the wall. The Soviets built the wall. It was built because East Germany was awarded to the Soviets as a spoil of WWII by the Allies (big mistake IMHO). East Berlin was communist…West Berlin was not. The wall was built because people kept leaving east Berlin…they didn’t want to live under communism. The Soviets were losing their labor force, as a result of the exodus of Germans. So, they built the wall to keep people from leaving. Communists only care about a viable work force (i.e. slave labor). They don’t want disabled people, elderly people, special needs people, etc. They consider those type a drain on the economy.
            Once the wall was erected, you were shot on sight if you tried to scale it. Furthermore, it was not just one wall surrounding the city. There was two walls and in between the two walls was approx. one city block of land with buried mines underneath. So, if you scaled one wall, you still needed to avoid the mines and scale the last wall. That’s communism 101, my dear.
            No, I’m not a Marxist or I would be fine with communism…which I detest. Securing our border with a wall is a different story. We cannot continue to remain a sovereign nation if we allow anyone and everyone to invade our country. That’s not immigration….it’s invasion. The Mexican border does need a wall. If you can come up with a better idea, I’m all ears.

          • Razedbywolvs

            Yes i can come up with a better idea. Remove the incentives for people to come here.
            Stop social welfare programs.
            De fund the CIA. All of the drug lords in Mexico that are making life imposable for the average person come from “The School of the Americas” paid for by your tax dollars.
            Fight communism by spreading the message of individual sovereignty to every one.
            Even if you did manage to build a wall that stops people, you cant build a wall that will stop an ideology.

          • Mary

            All of your ideas are valid and I actually agree with you. However, those things will take time to implement. In the meantime we not only have Mexican illegals invading our country but, even more disturbing is the number of OTM’s (other than mexicans). Muslims from the middle east are just waltzing over our border like nobody’s business and have been for years now. I heard like 4 or 5 yrs. ago that there were already over 35 terrorist camps on our soil. They aren’t stupid enough to go through our airports anymore. The TSA is just there to harass Americans because the muslim crazies are flying into South America and then coming thru central America into Mexico. They’re even getting help from the drug cartels. So, we don’t even know how many of them are already here now. Suffice to say, it’s enough to cause major damage. The govt. knows this but doesn’t care. A wall is the only way to stop this ASAP. We can implement all of your other ideas over time but it’s imperative that we do something drastic ASAP. It may even be too late already. That’s my biggest fear.

          • Razedbywolvs

            How do you figure implementing those things that just require Not writing cheques will take more time than building a wall that requires more money,taxes and DHS (The same people who drive buss loads of Mexicans to a town near you) Also how does that stop Dianne Feinstein husband from winning the government contract to build the wall? (BTY that train in CA cost 23 million a mile)
            35 terrorist training camps… I think you mean Baptist churches. Wean you think of “terrorist” you are thinking of Muslims. Wean the government is thinking about “terrorist” there thinking of you and me.
            So this is the game.
            Pay some stupid camel jockey into blowing up up your own people.
            Get elected by coming up with the brilliant solution to build a wall to stop bad guys.
            Get rich off of government contracts wile people are taxed into poverty. Blame all your failures on the other party.

            p { margin-bottom: 0.1in; line-height: 120%; }a:link { } failures on the other party.

            p { margin-bottom: 0.1in; line-height: 120%; }a:link { }Failures

            Give the same people who caused the problem more money and power. Wait 8 years and repeat with the wall to keep the Canadians commie out.

          • Sam Fox

            We at least need to add more border agents & equip them. Give them a lot more dogs too. Make it a really ‘bad thing’ to NOT enforce current immigration law while we’re at it.

            End sanctuary cities!! Arrest city leaders for treason or aiding & abetting criminals who come here illegally. Just jumping the border is a misdemeanor crime. Mexico does the felony thing. We need to make it a 2 year sentence to prison felony to jump the border. Get Sheriff Joe to build tent cities for them.

            We could start by disbanding the dept of education & the EPA. Give qualified workers a chance to join the border patrol. I like it that the BP Union endorses Trump.

            It wouldn’t hurt to cut back on the IRS either. Give them a chance to join BP as well.

            Razed has a point or two about ending incentives. That would help a lot.

            Fool. Take an airplane if you love the place.

            P.S. I think you really were raised by wolves cause you just don’t get it. Although, I have two Siberian huskies which are a lot like wolves and they are quite intelligent.

          • Razedbywolvs

            Siberian huskies are domesticated work dogs. There closer to a taxpayer than to wolves.

          • Mary

            No, my dogs do act just like wolves…even howl like them. I must say though that I’m the work dog around my house. The dogs just lay around and expect me to cater to their every need….lol

          • Razedbywolvs

            I had a friend with a Alaskan Malamute. He went to work and the dog jumped threw a closed window ran down a jack rabbit and then tore it apart in his living room. It looked like a black market abortion clinic.

            Unfortunately he had to put down the dog because it keep braking windows,doors and walls in pursuit of the call of the wiled.
            That was the most wolf like dog I have ever seen. I wish I was in the position were I could of taken him in but at the time I was living off toprawmen and didn’t have a job so I couldn’t afford to feed a 100 pound dog even if i supplemented part of his diet with local cute fuzzy woodland creates.

    And this is exactly why we need a businessman in the White House and not a Lawyer/politician………..

    • If the United States is a corporation, we need a businessman as the CEO.

  • I think he should try to attach Vicente Fox’s bank deposits a la bail-in, since he is so sure he isn’t going to pay for the wall.

  • We’d be much better off, immediately, if he would just bring home all of our troops and put them finger tip to finger tip on the border 24/7, until Mexico decides to play fair and bail out all of their citizens that we arrested as they tried to leave the same way they snuck in. Since Americans incarcerated in Mexican jails always have to feed themselves, we can demand room and board, to begin with.

  • Obama has no problems doing illegal, unconstitutional actions almost daily so why couldn’t Trump?

    • Reverend Draco

      Because, at least as I see it, he is running on a platform of “I’m not that sort of pigshit cocksucker.”

  • Mary

    If America is losing $58 billion in trade deficits with Mexico each year and the wall costs $10 billion to erect, then America is still $48 Billion ahead when all is said and done. Mexico just paid for the wall without even knowing it and Americans have $48 billion to spare. That’s how Mexico is paying for the wall.

  • brimstone2015

    Media is biased, and wrong. Headline reads, “Trump finally explains how he would …” Finally, as in Trump covered this in his immigration policy paper he put out on his website in August 2015. Trump put it in writing 7 months ago for all to see.

    Credit to Ann Coulter, as I found it on her twitter. Not recent, not finally. Last summer!

    Sounds like a plan, especially the Remittances – which is usually cash earned through illegal or un-taxed employment or drug trafficking. Mexico’s government would squeal like a stuck pig if Trump did this – as it is arguably the largest supporter of their national economy. Shut off the Remittances and secure the border by either building the “wall” (fence) or deploy the military to support the Border Patrol. Additionally, start treating Mexican illegals like Mexico treats American and other illegals – no food, no TV, no free medical care, etc.

  • sunshine ✓ᵀʳᵘᵐᵖ ˢᵘᵖᵖᵒʳᵗᵉʳ

    WHO GIVES A FUCK ABOUT MEXICO’S ECONOMY?? Why is it our problem? They’ve been getting US money for DECADES now and I think the gravy train needs to stop. Why the fuck are we expected to care more about everyone else and allow our nation to go down the shitter so MEXICO does well? FUCK YOU MEXICO. So sick of this “white man’s burden” and it needs to end!

    BUILD THE WALL! I DON’T CARE HOW IT’S DONE….JUST BUILD THE DAMNED WALL!! DEPORT THEM ALL!!
