    Here's the thing that should make the current grand wizard of the KKK drop to one knee, bow their head in worship, and hand their pillowcase headcovering to Mr. Trump in solemn adoration: How do you identify an "alien" who wants to make a wire transfer to someone in another country, so you can ask them for their document establishing their lawful presence in the U.S.?

    Perhaps he will require them to register as an Illegal.

    Not only that, but Trump's plan would require shutting down those money transferring websites like Moneygram, Western Union, and others. No more online money transfers. Think of a church wanting to send emergency funds to a missionary in Africa, but they can't because they have to go to a government wire transfer office and bring their papers. Or a parent that needs to send their college-aged child some money to buy books. Or, well, the scenarios could be endless.

    ITL points out the second biggest problem with this: government interference of individual business. Last time I checked, Western Union was a private, not government, company. Don't we already have problems with the government telling companies how to run their businesses and who they can do business with, without adding more?

    Sure. But conservatives sometimes have hypocritical beliefs, just like liberals. They decry big government, but they welcome it if it will address their pet issues. These sorts of people are in favor of regulating money transfer businesses to attack illegal immigration, in favor of a huge new federal bureaucracy to register a database of Muslim Americans, in favor of a government program to issue and maintain voter photo ID cards, in favor of a US Deportation Force to round up illegal immigrants, etc. etc.
