Reader proposes a migrant prosperity tax

I would like to propose a voluntary tax, lets say 25% of your annual wealth, to be spent on housing and food for all the people trying to cross our southern border.

This money is to be spent in Mexico or South America to better the lives of these distressed peoples,thus ending the need for them to come to the USA illegally.

Lets see how many Democrat Senators and Representatives set an example for their constituents to follow by paying this tax. I think you should lead by example, put up or shut up.
