9. Border Crossing Fee

All people who cross international borders, especially across the US international border, should pay a fee of perhaps $25 per person, regardless of age. Additional fees would be charged for vehicles (perhaps an additional $50 per vehicle).

The idea is to reduce the number of people crossing and thus increase the resources dedicated to security screenings for the remaining people who come across. This policy would also raise revenues to fund the security operations of the US Customs and Border Protection agency, ideally to the point of making is financially self-supporting.
