Democrats Say $5 Billion for Wall is a “Waste of Money” — But Cost of Illegal Alien Burden in US is $155 Billion Per Year

President Trump met with Democratic leaders Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer Tuesday in the White House.

During the explosive press conference President Trump called out the Democrat leaders and exposed them for their support for open borders.

Pelosi and Schumer said Democrats would not agree to $5 billion for the border wall. It was a waste of money!

They could not be further from the truth.

Actually the illegal alien financial burden, per year, in the United States is $155 billion.

That number does not count externals such as:
  • American jobs lost
  • Commerce affected by remittances to Mexico
  • Health crisis due to illegal drugs trafficked into our streets.
  • American deaths due to the illegal drugs in America today
Building the way – no matter who pays for it – IS Mexico paying for the wall, because we’d save nearly 100 billion dollars each year.
