TAX THE HELL OUT OF IT TO PAY FOR THE WALL!!

Post by Ken0069 » Wed Jan 03, 2018 5:24 am

Cash Remittances to Mexico Set $26B Record in 2017, Says Central Bank
Individuals outside of Mexico who sent money home in 2017 broke all prior records with more than $26.1 billion in 11 months.

The latest figures from Mexico’s Central Bank (Banxico) show 2017 being a record-breaking year for receiving remittances by Mexicans abroad. From January to November 2017, Mexicans sent $26,167,00,000, the highest figure to date. In 2016, another record-setting year, Mexicans sent $24.1 billion. Banxico reports that 97 percent of the funds sent to Mexico came through wire transfers. Mexico’s second largest source of income was the export of oil for $18.5 billion in the first 10 months of 2017. (read more)

IIRC last year I saw where that number was 25 BILLION so it's up quite a bit from then. President Trump had mentioned during his campaign that taxing that money was an option when he made the statement that Mexico was going to pay for the wall. It was also mentioned then that the money sent from the illegals in the USA was MORE than what Mexico's oil sales profits were in 2015. Can't find that posted on here though?

If the messicans weren't here, they couldn't send money back home, now could they!

Fix the f** problem and remove them not legal!

I think that I have read at several places several times that the LEGAL Mexicans here don't like it that the illegals are f** our system because they came here legally even if it took years to!!

"If the messicans weren't here, they couldn't send money back home, now could they!"

And just think of all the couch potatoes that could then find a job cutting lawns, picking fruit, doing roof work, etc, and then be able to get tax refunds on withholding taxes, collect SS, etc Boy, just think of all the unintended consequences, its mind boggling. Besides them Mexicans are too lazy/dumb to figure a way around, over, under, or thru any Great big beautiful wall an American can build.

Hey pass me another beer, this couch is just getting cozy.

They used to have "green cards" for that. Now the dimoKKKRATS figured out a way for the illegals to vote.

Seems to me that if $25 billion dollars in currency just left the country and is no longer in circulation, and the government has an upcoming project which will cost $25 billion dollars, it would be perfectly justifiable to simply borrow the money from the central bank and use it to pay for the wall.

Because states such as California were not participating. They have no interest in cleaning up their voter rolls.
