Will Mexico will actually pay for the Border Wall?
Mexico will not pay directly, there is no doubt about that.
But are there other ways that it could happen…
This is one way, that is being put forward, where Mexico would in fact pay for the wall, over time.
- If Mexican imports are taxed at a rate of 20 percent, the United States would raise about $13 billion a year in revenue from Mexico via the border adjustment tax.
- How could Mexico object when it is one of the 160 countries around that world that has a “border adjusted” VAT of its own?
