#Trump Blocking Money Transfers To Fund #TheWall

A Trump campaign memo paints the decision to build a wall as “an easy decision for Mexico”. This decision, coerced by blocking money transfers to Mexico unless it contributes $5 to $10 billion for the wall, would spark a series of unintended consequences from key trading partners in North and South America. Like it or not, Mexican and immigrant labor supports the billion dollar industries of agricultural and construction within the United States.

Headline: Trump would push Mexico to fund wall by blocking money transfers: report

WASHINGTON - Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump would try to force Mexico to pay for his proposed wall along the U.S. border by blocking remittances from immigrants in the United States in a move that could cripple the Mexican economy, The Washington Post reported on Tuesday.

Citing a two-page memo from Trump's campaign, the Post said Trump vowed to change a rule under a U.S. anti-terrorism law that would cut off money transfers to Mexico unless it made a one-time payment of $5 billion to $10 billion for the wall, if he is elected in the November U.S. presidential election.
