Why do people not want a wall on the border when it cost 54 billion a year to support illegal immigrants and it would reduce cost?

Within a year it would pay its self off the wall will not stop illegals but will make it a lot easier to patrol the border! If you are gonna enter the country make it legal if not it is a insult to all the tax payers and all the people in the military protecting the country

    Liberal crop growers want cheap labor, regardless of how much it costs us in taxes.

      I thought our farmers were "patriotic" Trump supporters?  Can't keep your lies straight, Ivan?

    Because not having them would cost even more. They produce most of our food and lower our crime rate. Even if building the wall was free, we still couldn't afford it.

    Within a year, the costs of importing food to make up for what we wouldn't be able to produce without illegal immigration would exceed imaginary cost of supporting them.

    There is no cost of supporting illegal immigrants. They pay more in taxes than they receive in benefits. They support citizens, not the other way around.

    Don't you just love the way the cost "to support illegal immigrants" keeps inflating?  We can all remember last year when it was just $15 billion a year.  Now, it's all the way up to $54 billion.  Why stop there, Trump toadies?  Why not make it a $trillion?  Now, can we see the studies that prove anything you've said is valid, please?

      The estimate in 2006 was well over $100 billion; $120 billion, if I recall.

    Only IF we do like all nations and enforce our immigration laws and deport those here illegally. 

    .

    And, yes, it would save WAAAY more than 54 billion.
