    great guess.

    but the correct answer is that there won't be any wall for years to come. if it isn't built in 4..it won't be.

    They built it (a lot of fence, not much wall). The illegal immigrant population leveled off completely.

    Is Mexico going to write a check for the wall and hand it to Trump right after the Inauguration? Of course not.

    Mexico is going to pay for the wall through a tax placed by the US on the wire transfers Mexicans send back to Mexico.

    Why is that so hard to grasp? Why do Liberals keep asking this question over and over again?

    There is still money out there for those "shovel ready projects" that isn't being used.
    Lets do something with that.

    LOL, where the hell did you get your information? Mexico is not going to pay for the wall.

    "Mexico’s newly appointed Foreign Minister Luis Videgaray said Tuesday there is “no way” his country will pay for a wall that U.S. President-elect Donald Trump wants to build along the border between the two countries".

    There are any of a 1000 sources if you have even a scintilla of intellectual curiousity. Here's one:

    How Trump Could Get Mexicans To Pay For The Wall

    And F what anyone in the Mexican government thinks. There isn't a damn thing they can do about it. They can bluster all they want, and you can too.

    Did you notice the "COULD" in your comment? Again I will post this:

    "Mexico’s newly appointed Foreign Minister Luis Videgaray said Tuesday there is “no way” his country will pay for a wall that U.S. President-elect Donald Trump wants to build along the border between the two countries".

    And again I tell you anything the Mexican government says is MEANINGLESS. We simply put a fee on wire transfers sent by individuals in the US to Mexico. Problem solved.

    Tell me what the Mexican government can do to stop that. Please tell me.

    That is not Mexico paying for the wall. That's illegal Mexicans paying for the wall. Those are two completely different things.

    Donald J. Trump’s 10 Point Plan to Put America First

    1. Begin working on an impenetrable physical wall on the southern border, on day one. Mexico will pay for the wall.

    This is not rocket surgery.

    PayPal?

    BitCoin?

    Wire that shit via an intermediary?

    Cashing checks after they arrive in the mail?

    A tax on wire transfers will fuck over sunburnt tourists that get robbed more than anyone you're trying to fuck over. It's a silly idea.

    It's not difficult to distinguish citizens from aliens when they try to wire money. You only tax the non citizens.
