Undocumented immigrants aren’t eligible to receive most government support programs already. The only programs they can access are emergency Medicaid if someone ends up in the emergency room, and food benefits. This is nothing more than the bare minimum of humanity - not letting someone die or starve because they don’t have the right paperwork. The reason this would likely save the money that’s being claimed is because it would create additional barriers to access services that would keep qualified people out as well. It’s inhumane. If we want to look at wasteful spending that could be redirected - look at military spending. We spend more than the other 5 largest militaries in the world, combined. And building a wall is an ineffective, costly, and impractical approach to addressing immigration. It’s nothing more than an expensive symbolic middle finger devised by a president who doesn’t understand public policy.
