Breitbart: “During an interview aired on Wednesday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “For the Record,” House Speaker Representative Paul Ryan (R-WI) stated that while there are “a lot of different ways of getting Mexico to contribute” to the construction of a border wall, and defining how Mexico pays for it, “we’re going to pay for it, and front the money up,” and stated the cost would be somewhere between $8-14 billion.”
Ryan: “Well first off, we’re going to pay for it, and front the money up but I do think that there are various ways, of as you know I know your follow-up question is, is Mexico going to pay for the wall? There’s a lot of different ways of getting Mexico to contribute to doing this and there are different ways of defining how exactly they pay for it. Point is he has a promise that he made to the American people which is to secure our border. A wall is a big part of that. We agree with that goal and we will be working with him to finance construction of a physical barrier, including the wall on the southern border.”
Compare the high cost of maintaining the border and the illegals which crossed to the minute cost of the wall and it’s a clear choice.
