Along with this stop the ability to transfer money to Mexico. Many people come here and send money via western union to their families in Central America and Mexico. This is a major economic drain and outflow of cash. If heads of families couldnt transfer their money back home they wouldnt come to America solo. Would be better to have the cash spent on US soil.

I'm trying to think of any historic examples where the ruling government instituting capital controls was a good thing. I'm not coming up with any..

We already have capital controls, I cant transfer money to North Korea or similar places...I am not saying I support doing this but all of the solo migration would dry up if this was done.

But how would you implement this so only illegals were banned? Or would you rather just bar all Americans from sending money to Central America? That may not be great for our economy lol.

And just like North Zkorea, its be totally impossible to get money back home because there is no way to actually drive to Mexico and then come back! And forget using the mail. And no way some figures out how to exploit such a ban usuing crypto currency. I mean, no way!

OK, fair point, though this is typically done because the regime in question are deemed scumbags, not the citizens.

Tell you what, if you lump in Canada I'm willing to get on board.

This is Brazilian shithole-esque

Just prevent illegals from entering
