When Obamacare was being introduced, the Fed didn't comment on the disruption that it would bring to the economy, at a time when the economy was shaky.

For every 50,000 illegal migrants that cross the border, there is a 1% tariff on goods from Mexico.
For every .2% that the Mexican population growth rate is above that of the US, there is a 1% tariff on Mexican goods.
For every 5% that Mexican high school graduation rates are below those of the US, there is a 1% tariff on Mexican goods.
These, and other policies like them, will work better than any wall to encourage the Mexican government to change, and through that change, lower illegal migration to the US. comment by usgoosht on The Wall Street Journal: Texas Republicans arent too keen on building a border wall Feb 23, 2017 03:52 AM [GMT]
