Should there be a transfer fee to every person sending money to their “home country” if they can’t prove they are here legally?

Illegals aliens sent home $550 billion in 2019. if we were to levy a 30% transfer fee, the approximately $160 billion they and their children cost us would be covered. Shouldn’t illegals cover their own costs rather than saddle honest Americans with the billions of expense associated with them?

Yep.... Doesn't matter if they're here legally or not if they're transferring US currency out to where it can't be spent within the economy here it should be levied.

I am good with this. Hell, would not even bother me if we did it to those here legally

The lady at Wal Mart has no way to determine who is here legally and who is not. It's quite sad that it seems we want to put enforcement on some person working a counter at Wal Mart as opposed to those who are supposed to be in charge of enforcing the law against those who write them their pay checks to start with.

I don't know of a single country that takes money from foreign nationals who send money home. That was another embarrassing idea from Trump.

We aren’t talking about foreign nationals living here legally. We are talking about people with no regard for American laws who have broken into our country. If they don’t like that they will be required to cover their own costs, rather than saddle honest people with it, then let them stay home.

What is the downside of doing so?

YES. They should be forced to pay a tax rate to send their cash home to mamacita
They shouldn't be allowed to send US currency out of the US.
If you want to end the invasion....you need to make it a living Hell to come here...or at best....not worth it to come here.

They will just get someone here legally to do it for them. Only real way to do this is to tax everyone sending money overseas

Again, we are not talking about immigrants. We are talking about ILLEGAL ALIENS.

And it’s not their money if they earned it illegally, which they did. They shouldn’t be here to earn it in the first place.

Then you have to go after those giving them jobs. That is the only way they will quit coming is when the jobs dry up. But we never do this.

With all the crimes in this country, it is amazing the amount of effort conservatives spend harassing illegals

Kid massacres 4th of July parade

Conservatives…..What are we going to do about illegals?

LOL

Why don’t you go after the employers if the money is illegal?

You could do that with raids on their employers.

We aren’t the ones letting the criminals off the hook. That’s the fault of the soft-on-crime liberals. They allow ALL crime (other than mass shootings), from shoplifters to illegals.
