There may be some huge financial benefits to Trump’s border wall.
A new study by the Center for Immigration Studies revealed that the wall would also save taxpayers $64 billion over the next 10 years simply by reducing illegal immigration.
“If a wall stopped half of those expected to successfully enter illegally without going through a port of entry at the southern border over the next 10 years, it would save taxpayers nearly $64 billion — several times the wall’s cost,” Steven Camarota, author of the report, said.
The report covered federal, state and local spending, as well as benefits for illegal immigrants.
The report reveals that 170,000 illegal crossings occur each year, and Camarota explained that low education levels for illegal immigrants drive up costs for taxpayers.
While the mainstream media will complain all day long about the initial cost of Trump’s proposed wall and how unfair it is, they won’t report about any of the benefits a wall would actually bring.
