U.S.-Mexico border fenceAn immigration enforcement activist says even though he's endorsing Donald Trump in the presidential election, he isn't sure that if elected the billionaire businessman will follow through on his promise to build a wall along the Mexican border.

One of the key elements to Trump's rise in popularity among many in the GOP faithful is his pledge to build a wall along the Mexican border to stop illegal immigrants flooding into the U.S. Critics have been skeptical of Trump's pledge, including his claim that he will get the Mexican government to pay for it.

William Gheen, president of Americans for Legal Immigration PAC, tells OneNewsNow that ALIPAC will hold Trump accountable to keeping his promises. 

"We have no way of telling whether Donald Trump will or will not keep his promises,” he says. “But since we have endorsed him, we can always drop endorsement. And I promised the people that if Donald Trump begins to break any of his major promises to the American public, ALIPAC will be the first to drop our endorsement. ALIPAC will be the first to go after him with all the fury and force we can carry."

According to Gheen, there are many different ways to make Mexico pay for the wall. 

“[The options range] from stopping the remittances that they send home and stopping the IRS from giving out over four billion dollars worth of earned income credit to Mexican illegal immigrants each year, to tariffs and other things," he says.

On its website ALIPAC has posted a "Top 10 Ways" to make Mexico pay for the wall.
