Remittances


Daily CallerThe White House is planning on targeting remittance payments made by illegal immigrants in the wake of an ongoing migrant flood at the U.S. southern border, a senior administration official told reporters Tuesday.

The plans to target remittance payments come amid a broader shakeup at the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and future executive actions designed to curb illegal immigration. The situation at the southern border has escalated in recent weeks, with thousands of migrants arriving daily to claim asylum.

Tax the payments and use the funds to build the wall.

I honestly do not know to what extent Trump can act unilaterally here. It depends on trade agreements, authorities from existing legislation, and so on. But he absolutely should be looking into the possibility.
