senate Bill S. 3713

Cutting $25 Billion in Welfare & Tax Credits From Unauthorized Immigrants to Pay for the Border Wall

Argument in favor

Building a southern border wall was one of the president’s major campaign promises, and this bill enables the government to fulfill that promise. Securing the southern border will make the U.S. safer, and ensuring that only legal residents can access tax credits and welfare ensures that America’s prosperity is reserved for Americans.

Why should illegal immigrants receive public assistance in the first place. Take away public assistance and you take away the incentive to come to our country

Cut everything from illegal aliens: hospitals, education including universities, welfare, tax breaks. If we do this they will have no desire to come to the USA illegally. Time to stop the Democrat plan for illegal votes with their illegal sanctuary cities. The USA only has an obligation to its citizens. For all of the liberal democrats wanting to help these people, there are foundations and sponsorships available where you can use YOUR money and not other peoples money. I have dozens of relatives from nations much worse off than Mexico who would love nothing more than to live and work in the USA, but they are applying and moving through the process legally. No one should be allowed to skip the process.

Pass S. 3713 to build the wall and stop encouraging illegal aliens by giving away our tax dollars to them! We should not be giving welfare and other benefits to illegals!

Argument opposed

A physical border wall isn’t a smart strategy for securing the southern border, and it’s not sensible to spend billions on dollars on something that won’t solve the problem. It’d be better to invest border security funding on things that actually work to secure the border.

Don't understand what this is for since they have no research or proof that any undocumented worker is on government subsistence. There is another hidden purpose of this bill!

There is no evidence that “illegal” immigrants are on welfare, let alone there being enough of them for the federal government to "save" $25 billion so they can put it towards a wall. This bill, much like this current administration, is not based in reality.

No Wall. No taxpayer monies for The Wall. #45 is currently saying the construction of The Wall has already begun. This is a LIE! The border had maintenance performed on parts of the fencing, as well as training and/or retraining of border personnel. Construction of The Wall has not, is not, should not, happen.

    It's appalling that the same people that say we give government way to much leeway and funding are willing to give this already proven corrupt administration 5 billion dollars for a political disaster. Seems as though trying humanitarian efforts would not only save money and lives but be politically good for Trump. If there is one thing Trump needs it's something good that he can be credited for taking part in.

    Just no. The border wall is the dumbest tantrum we’ve had to live through with this administration so far. The wall isn’t even going to be effective for the ‘problem’ racists are building it for. Most people that aren’t authorized to be here came here legally and overstayed visas. Not to mention all of the edges of this country that are along the water, all of the airports that accept international flights, etc. Immigration laws in this country definitely need to be looked at strongly (preferably by people who are smart and not racist) but this is just a waste of money.

    P.S. CHICKIE & HILLARY...... YOU ARE BOTH SO VERY WRONG.... IT’S THE DEMOCRATS WHO DON’T CARE. 👍🏻 SENATE bill S.3713 AKA the WALL Act of 2018 👍🏻 I’m in strong support and recommend the passage of this SENATE bill S. 3713 AKA the WALL Act of 2018, would make $25 billion available to fully fund the construction of a border wall by reducing spending on welfare and tax credits for unauthorized immigrants in the U.S. Building a southern border wall was one of the president’s major campaign promises, and this bill enables the government to fulfill that promise. Securing the southern border will make the U.S. safer, and ensuring that only legal residents can access tax credits and welfare ensures that America’s prosperity is reserved for Americans.

    Until illegal immigration at our southern border is stopped, all aid payments to Mexico, Central and South America get diverted to building a border wall.

    We should do this regardless of the wall. It is time to stop the gravy-train. Anyone here illegally should not benefit from a system they became part of illegally. Stand in line, and come here legally.

    Find the funding from whatever source can legally be used. Welfare for illegal aliens is a prime source. They are criminals who have violated United States laws; why should they be rewarded for that when legal citizens are not being helped. #MAGA #Build the wall

    First, this is simply unAmerican. Second, this is a bill proposed simply to appease trump and his minimal base. Finally, it is unfathomable that illegal immigrants utilize $25 billion in public assistance. It seems convenient, since that is the exact dollar amount needed to fund trump’s wall. No taxpayer funds for his wall; this bill will still utilize our hard earned money, regardless of where the government is getting the money. Hopefully no Congress member that votes to approve this bill had an immigrant grandparent or great grandparent that ever utilized government assistance, even during and following the Great Depression. Finally, if an immigrant is escaping poor and dangerous living conditions, then how would said immigrant afford a $10,000 fine? Start using some common sense. Again, no use of taxpayer funds for trump’s wall, ever!

    UNDOCUMENTED PEOPLE DO NOT RECEIVE ANYTHING FROM OUR GOVERNMENT. They WORK & PAY TAXES, but receive NOTHING BACK FOR THAT EXCEPT DENIGRATION. Inhofe knows that too. He’s inflaming the people who don’t do research, only watching Fox/Fake News.

    To be honest, I thought the federal government already required proof of citizenship for those welfare programs. If you have a vested interest in the survival of the welfare programs involved, several things must happen. - They must be economically viable, even the warmest of intentions must be paid for. Some restrictions have to be in place. - Trust in government is an asset that gets eroded every time abuse, and waste happen, if people don’t trust their government they avoid paying taxes. - If there is one universal is that no one likes a cheater (yes even liberals feel this way). - if the intention is to create a welfare program for the undocumented, then enshrine that into law, California did it.
