So the Hairy Hemorrhoid™ finally came out with a “plan” to force Mexico to pay for a wall between our two countries, and a stupider plan, if you can even call it that, has never been proposed.
Basically, he plans to
impound all remittances from illegal wages going to Mexico from the United States steal people’s money.
I shit you not.
I don’t even know where to begin with this dumbshittery.
Immigrants both legal and illegal send money back home to Mexico. How the hell does one separate the “good” money from the “bad?”
Seizure of private property without due process in order to threaten Mexico with reducing the country’s GDP by an estimated less than two percent? Good plan, there, Sparky!
Stop all financial transactions from banks here to Mexico? You’ve just pissed off the financial sector and empowered bulk cash smugglers, who make billions of dollars per year carting monetary instruments across the Mexican border.
And just how much would the law enforcement resources cost? You know… the ones that would have to be expended checking on the immigration status of every individual who wants to wire money overseas? And how much more will it cost to deal with the increase in bulk cash smuggling? Is he going to hire officers to go through everyone’s mail, when inevitably immigrants start buying pre-paid cash cards to mail home to Mexico after financial institutions are prevented from wiring money across the border?
Oh, and by the way, since Mexico is our second largest goods export market, per the US Trade Representative, what does he think will happen to our exports? He whines about a $56 billion trade deficit now? Wait till he tries to implement restrictions on financial transfers and confiscate people’s wages!
Yeah, the guy is a douche stick with ears. Can we please stop with the joke that is his candidacy now? Please?
