    One way to get Mexicans to pay for the "wall."

    Tax remittances! Multiple billions of US$ are transferred by Western Union and others from Mexican nationals working here in the USofA back into the home country to support family, etc. At present, I believe this is not regulated or taxed.

    If we levy a custom on MX imports, the US consumer will pay the higher prices and in essence, pay for the wall. My idea takes $$ away from flowing INTO MX and truly makes them pay for the wall.

    Following link will illustrate the magnitude of the outflow of US$:

    IMO there are lots of ways to make Mexico pay for the wall...

    The important thing is: We (the USA) has a seasoned and proven deal maker with a decades long track record of winning... making the deal FOR the USA...

    *Installation is more important than the brand of equipment
    *The duct system keeps the house comfortable; the equipment only heats and cools (and dehumidifies)
    *Cheap is not good, good is not cheap; however expensive is not a guarantee of quality!
    Choose your contractor wisely!

    Here are the top 10 recipients of United States foreign aid, based on fiscal year 2010 figures from the Congressional Research Service.

    IMO, we should be spending this here in our country to build the wall, and our infrastructure.

    Nigeria: 615 million

    Kenya: 688 million

    Mexico: 758 million (no more aid until the wall is finished!)

    Jordon: 843 million

    Iraq: 1.11 billion

    Egypt: 1.55 billion

    Haiti: 1.77 billion

    Pakistan: 1.8 billion

    Israel: 2.77 billion

    Afghanistan: 4.1 billion

    We could hire contractors on both sides get concrete and steel from both sides and split the cost and build it right down the middle of the Rio Grande river . It would be good for Mexico also because it would stop Americans from sneaking in
    Go Trump
