HR1813: What the Proposed US Border Wall Funding Bill Says

Below is the text of the five pages of the Bill to Amend the Electronic Fund Transfer Act to impose a fee for remittance transfers to certain foreign countries and for other purposes. Republican congressman from Alabama, Mike Rogers, introduced the ‘Border Wall Funding Bill’ on March 30. It is to amend the Electronic Fund Transfer Act by requiring a charge of two per cent on the US-dollar value of any money being sent to Jamaica and 43 other countries covering Latin America and the Caribbean. The tax would be used to fund the wall President Donald Trump promised to build at the US border with Mexico to curb illegal immigration.
