According to a report earlier this month by CBS News, about $558 billion in goods flowed across the border in both directions last year. It found that the U.S. exported $243.3 billion in goods across the border along with $58 billion in services.
…Duncan Wood, director of the Wilson Center’s Mexico Institute, told CBS MoneyWatch that shutting down the border would cost “hundreds of millions of dollars a day” or “maybe a billion.”
…The shutdown has left 800,000 federal employees furloughed or forced to work without pay through the holidays.
“Weh, weh, weh,” cried orange asshat, all the way home.
