Border Wall Will Save Taxpayers Five Times Its Cost Over The Next 10 Years

Boom! Most proactive way to save the country millions is Tump’s wall.

Taxpayers from both party’s have an issue with where the money is being spent. Only difference is Republicans have the country’s interests in mind, Democrats seem to only have themselves in mind.

Finally Hillary and Obama are in the hot seat.

Via CIS:

Building a wall on the southern U.S. border could save taxpayers four to five times its cost over the next 10 years, a new report by the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) shows.

Using National Academy of Science (NAS) and Department of Homeland Security (DHS) data, the study looks at the lifetime net financial drain (taxes minus services used) of each illegal alien entering the country.

Given the $12-15 billion cost of the border wall and assuming 1.7 million illegal crossings without the wall over the next 10 years:

Each illegal is a lifetime net cost to taxpayers of $74,722

If the wall cut illegal entries in half (850,000), the wall would save $64 billion over ten years

The wall would pay for itself in two years (1.9-2.2 years, depending on cost)

It would save taxpayers 4-5 times its cost over 10 years

If the wall stopped only 9-12% (160-180,000) of illegal crossing over the next decade, a $12-15 billion wall would pay for itself in ten years

Factoring in the average cost of an illegal alien’s U.S.-born children, the net financial cost taxpayers would have to absorb is $94,931. If the wall stopped only 9% (160,000) illegal crossing, a $12,000,000 wall would still pay for itself in about eight years.

    This wall cannot be raised soon enough. Mexico has benefited of American tax payers long enough. These dollars need to go back into our own economy and benefit American citizens. Mexico’s economy is not our problem. Mexico brings in more revenue from illegal immigrants then it does from oil. Mexico encourages and even helps it’s citizens to leave Mexico. Enrique Peña Nieto has even stated that he will do everything in his power to help illegals in the US as long as they remain in the US.
