JUST IN: Rep. Rogers (R-AL) Files Bill To Fund Border Wall By Taxing Illegal Immigrants

Representative Mike Rogers – a Republican representing Alabama’s Third District, has just filed a bill designed to jump start funding for Donald Trump’s proposed border wall.

HR 1813, also called the Border Wall Funding Act of 2017, would impose a 2% fee on all money being sent across the border by wire transfer to countries south of the United States. According to Representative Rogers’ press release, Mexico alone received over $24 Billion via this method in 2014, and other countries received over 15% of their total national GDP from these international money transfers from the United States.
