They will, either in losses or by contributing, if there is an import tax levied on their goods then they will lose business which would make americans get their products elsewhere like in america which would increase velocity of our money.

A nation is not a nation without borders, same thing for states. It is a primary duty of the nation to monitor and protect their borders. Other programs often are not a direct duty of the federal government but even if they were they would be lower in priority. People do not have a right to travel across nations freely and squat where they want. America is for Americans and Mexico is for Mexicans, legal citizens pay their taxes to their government to govern and protect their land which is why Mexico has a wall on it's southern border plus they strictly punish those that do illegal cross their borders. If you want to go a different nation you need to get legal authorization from that nation as either a visitor, migrant worker, or defector to that country. Also thought you were employed by the US Gov?

No but it is a measure I can use for any person doing a B&E, sort of like a lock or door or wall. If you truly want to stand by what you mean feel free to remove the doors from everything you own and depend on the security that you tell people you know to not mess with your stuff without your express permission.
