HOW TO MAKE MEXICO PAY $1 BILLION A YEAR FOR BUILDING A FENCE: BY “USER FEES” ON MONEY TRANSFERS (REMITTANCES) & BORDER CROSSING “USER FEE”

$1 billion a year from Mexico to build the fence.  A simple and ready source for the funds!

USE FEE ON MONEY TRANSFERS (REMITTANCES)

Mexicans in the U.S. transfer huge amounts of money to Mexico.  These remittances pre-recession were in the area of $26 billion annually and climbing !  Now post-recession it’s some $25 billion and climbing again.

(1)  Require a use fee on all remittances to Mexico.

(2)  A 2% transfer fee would raise $500,000,000 annually !

(3)  Exempt all persons who can show that they are legally here and/or that they have a paycheck with required deductions and that it is therefore not untaxed money.

SERVICE FEE ON CROSSINGS

Charge a service fee for all persons stopped crossing the border illegally.

(1)  Some 300,000 plus persons are caught illegally crossing the border.

(2)   $200 service fee would raise $60,000,000 plus annually !

(3)  This is no more than the cost for a tourist visa extension request !

SERVICE FEE ON LEGAL BORDER CROSSINGS

Charge a use/service fee for all foreign nationals crossing the border at border crossings.

(1)  Some 180,000,000 people crossed the border legally coming into the U.S. in 2015.

(2)  $5 service fee on incoming crossing by foreign nationals would be pennies more than a mere cup of coffee.

(3)  If half the crossings are of foreign nationals the service fee would raise $450,000,000 annually.

Then leave it to the Mexican government to determine if they want to reimburse their citizens.

And then Mexico can have its cake and eat it too:  it does not pay the U.S. and saves face; but yet may pay its citizens back – FOR MEXICO’S USE OF THE UNITED STATES !!
