1. That would be great if it is accurate

would like to read that study.

The headline on the tweet liked by POTUS tells a bit of a different story:
"Study: Trump’s Border Wall Could Pay for Itself by Cutting Welfare to Illegal Immigrants"

The difference "could pay for itself" vs Trump's tweet "will pay for itself".

2. What about the reduced number of felons in jail?

Is that part of the calculated savings?

6. For profit prisons

Require those cells be filled. No savings there.

8. The individual states pay private prisons

But the contracts require the beds be filled or the states have to pay more expensive penalties. That's why you are less likely to be paroled from the prison industrial complex.

11. A quota does not mean full

government run prisons are overflowing, otherwise there would be no need to sub contract their populations out to private companies.

There is no shortage of felons. We don't need illegals to fill jails. Every illegal that stays in Mexico is one less that taxpayers have to pay for.

When they figure in the cost savings of building a wall, this should be included.

12. You didn't read a single word of the articles that Trumplethinskin just linked, did you?

Don't you understand lockup quotas? How can there be "...one less that taxpayers have to pay for," when we have to pay for prison cells whether they are empty or occupied?

13. Obviously YOU didn't read them

only rare private prisons are under contract to pay for every cell no matter if it is full or empty.

Anybody that contracts to pay for something they are not using is STUPID.

Illegals could probably fill up their own prison. The myth that illegals are mostly law abiding people has been exposed.

The wall will save millions in the absence of illegal felons in this country.

14. So says the CIS.

Do you know they are highly discredited? You should seek a variety of information sources and not let Trump and his Republican oriented media tell you what to think.

15. Jerk $500,000,000 a year away from Planned Parenthood.

Jerk away another $500,000,000 a year from NPR/CPB liberal propaganda. Right there is a billion $/yr that can go towards the wall and border security.
