In reality, the cost of the border wall would a very small percentage of the federal budget. It is conceivable that the cost savings from
Homeland Security would offset some because of less need for ICE agents and border patrols, the saving on troop withdrawal from Syria could help, the sale of timber from Federal lands being cleaned for fire mitigation could be considered, and any number of other cost saving measures are certainly possible.

Even though 5.8 Billion dollars sounds like a lot of money (and it is) it is very small when compared with the total we spend annually. This has never been about the money, except as it acts as a control. It is about a philosophy, one where it is difficult to see any compromise. It is a battle between globalism and nationalism.
