Trump’s campaign said in a memo that if elected to the White House in November, he would use a U.S. anti-terrorism law to cut off remittances from people living in the United States illegally, unless Mexico made a one-time payment of $5 billion to $10 billion for a wall he has proposed along the U.S. border.
