WASHINGTON (AP) — A published report says Donald Trump would force Mexico to pay for a border wall, if elected president, by cutting off billions of dollars in remittances by immigrants living in the U.S.

The report, in Tuesday’s Washington Post, cites a two-page memo sent by the Republican presidential front-runner outlining how he would force Mexico to pay for the 1,000-mile wall.

In his proposal, Trump is reportedly threatening to change a rule under the Patriot Act anti-terrorism law to cut off money transfers sent to Mexico. Trump added that he would withdraw the treat if Mexico makes “a one-time payment of $5 to $10 billion” to finance the wall, the Washington Post reported.

Mexico’s President Enrique Peña Nieto has said his country will not pay for any such wall.
