RUSH: One of the most surprising things in the entire sound bite roster is this. This happened Wednesday at the Hudson Institute in Washington. They hosted a panel that was entitled, “US, Mexico, and Latin America 2016 and Beyond.” And during the discussion, the former Mexican secretary of foreign affairs, a guy by the name of Jorge Castaneda spoke about Trump’s plan to build a wall along the border and have Mexico pay for it, and this is what the guy said.
CASTANEDA: If he really wants Mexicans to pay for the wall, he has many ways of getting many Mexicans to pay for the wall. Increasing the fee for visas, which is a decision made by the State Department, not by Congress. Increasing the toll on the bridges, again run by CBP, et cetera, not by the Congress. Taxing remittances, that’s more complicated in terms of congressional approval or not, but there are ways of doing it as transaction fees, commissions, et cetera, et cetera, special fee for, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah.
RUSH: Yeah, that’s Dr. Jorge Castaneda, the former Mexico secretary of foreign affairs saying, “Hell, yes, Trump could get Mexico to pay for the wall, and he wouldn’t even have to get Congress to do it.”
