Someone should tell Donald Trump that unauthorized immigrants’ contribution to the U.S. economy is approximately $743 billion/year. Since unauthorized immigrants from Mexico are approximately 60% of them, their contribution is around $445 billion. 34 million Hispanics of Mexican origin reside in the United States legally, 11.4 million born in Mexico and 22.3 million born in the U.S (US Citizens). Do you want more data? 54 million Hispanics live in the US, the largest ethnic or racial minority. The U.S. Hispanic population for 2060 is estimated to reach 128.8 million; more than 60% will be of Mexican origin.

So don’t mess with México.
