    Mexico has a wall, on its southern border, to prevent illegal immigration from Central and South America into Mexico. But Mexico itself benefits greatly from illegal immigration from Mexico to the United States. That's because millions of Mexican citizens send money frequently back to Mexico to support their families, which in turn benefits the Mexican economy.

    Mexico will pay for the wall, whether they want to or not, one way or another. If it comes down to an economic fight between the United States and Mexico, Mexico stands no chance at all. The US can instruct all consulates not to issue any visas to Mexican citizens anymore, and invalidate all that have been issued at the same time. The President can also, based on national security, stop all money transfers from private parties from the United States to Mexico. That would greatly hurt the Mexican people and the Mexican economy. Lastly, the President already proposed a 20% import tax on all products coming to the United States from Mexico. So in the end, they will pay. It's all smoke and mirrors.

    They won't pay for any wall, if Trump wants it and US citizens voted him in then he will tax US citizens more to pay for it

    Because Mexico is allowing illegal aliens and drugs to flow through their country to get to the US and it doing nothing about it.

    They have refused repeatedly. Mexico is not going to pay for any walls. If you still believe that, you just WANT to be ignorant.
