    Will Trump seize monies and assets of non-citizens to pay for the border wall?

    Once the people who are not here legally start getting deported, their property might be seized and sold, with the proceeds covering the wall construction costs.  Police in sanctuary cities might be offered a slice of the pie to round up those who can be deported.  Anything left could go the national debt.

    Not sure but it will be (Americans) who pay the higher tariffs on products if they want them. Higher tariffs primarily punishes the (consumers) who desire various imported products.
    Higher tariffs will not cause a Corona person to switch to Budweiser or cause a Toyota person to purchase a Ford.
    Essentially it's (raising taxes) instead of cutting them.
    If the demand remains the same the higher fees from consumers will pay for the wall and not the country manufacturing products.

    On Holocaust Remembrance Day, you pose a question about rounding people up and seizing their property. Are we going to put them in camps too, before we ship them back to Central America?   I hope the question was meant in jest.

    I actually would hope not if they are good honest and solid people.  I am in favor of deporting all of those with criminal records but not in favor of just rounding up people and seizing their property.

    I see Trump applying fees to the billions illegal immigrants send back as remittances and higher fees for immigration visas to pay for the wall. I don't see him seizing personal property to pay for it, due to the bad press such stories cause and the ease by which people can pack up and leave.
    No one is going to check the papers of people taking a moving truck to Mexico and take their furniture to build a wall. That is liberal hysteria, whereas the people murdered by drug gangs populated by illegal immigrants never get their attention or sympathy. I would like to see Mexico billed for the cost of incarcerating their criminal immigrants, but that's something that will take time.
    Regarding the wall: Many illegal immigrants are unbanked, so there isn't much that could be seized financially. And from Western Union to international bank accounts to Bitcoin, they have ways to launder the money / send it home.
    Those who have bought houses, cars and other assets could sell them, albeit at fire sale prices. Given the sheer number who have American born children and spouses, asset transfers to citizens are a viable workaround for many.
    I don't like the idea of using civil forfeiture against illegal immigrants, because it is already so prone to abuse against citizens. The last thing we need is police who already stop out of state travelers on highway and say let us take all the cash or we arrest you as suspected drug dealers getting the added power to do that to anyone on the street with cash in their wallet and lacking a specific ID card.
