DACA Kids Will Really Pay for Trump’s Great Wall

Trump wants a 25 Billion Dollar Trust Fund for his “Great Trump Wall” in Exchange for a “Deal” on DACA Kids.

Breaking down the Numbers on Trump’s “Great Wall” and the DACA kids
Trump’ wants a 25 Billion Dollar “Great Wall” Trust Fund in Exchange for a decade-long “Path” to citizenship for DACA kids. Wall vs. DACA Kid $ ratio - 1.8 million DACA Kids x $14,000 = Twenty-five Billion Two Hundred Thousand.

A 2017 report by the Institute of Taxation and Economic Policy found that 1.3 million undocumented immigrants in the United States enrolled in, or eligible for DACA, contributed more than $11.74 Billion a year in state and local taxes. That equals out to $117.4 Billion over the decade that Trump proposes for a pathway to citizenship.

Repealing the temporary legal status and work authorizations permitted under DACA would reduce estimated state and local revenues by nearly $800 million per year.

So In reality, if a deal is finally made which also passes both the House and Senate, DACA Kids will really be the ones paying for Trump’s “Great Wall” several times over!
