We all know the immediate benefit of President Donald Trump’s proposed border wall would be to keep out those with bad intent.
However, there are other benefits you most likely won’t see being covered by the mainstream media.
A new study by the Center for Immigration Studies revealed that the wall would also save taxpayers $64 billion over the next 10 years simply by reducing illegal immigration.
According to data provided by the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine, if a wall stopped just 9 to 12 percent of illegal aliens expected to cross the border in the next 10 years, the savings would equal $12 billion to $15 billion — the approximate cost of the wall.
The center claimed illegal border crossings are a net drain of nearly $75,000 per person, and eliminating just 200,000 people from illegally crossing the border would save some $15 billion. If the figure includes the U.S.-born descendants, that number grows to $94,391 each, the report claimed.
In short, the more illegal crossings are prevented, the more money is saved.
“If a wall stopped half of those expected to successfully enter illegally without going through a port of entry at the southern border over the next 10 years, it would save taxpayers nearly $64 billion — several times the wall’s cost,” Steven Camarota, author of the report, said.
The report covered federal, state and local spending, as well as benefits for illegal immigrants.
The report reveals that 170,000 illegal crossings occur yearly, and Camarota explained that low education levels for illegal immigrants drive up costs for taxpayers.
While the mainstream media will complain all day long about the initial cost of Trump’s proposed wall and how unfair it is, they won’t report about any of the benefits a wall would actually bring.
