Republican legislators in Arizona proposed an initiative to charge fees for accessing pornographic content sites on the internet to raise funds to pay for the border wall promised by U.S. President Donald Trump.

Arizona’s HB2444 proposal detailed that the state government can integrate a block to pornographic pages that will only be released through advance payment or subscription.

Although the proposal does not establish a specific fee, some legislators say it should be at least US$20.

The entities that support said border tax are: Alabama, South Carolina, Kentucky, Virginia, Rhode Island and Utah.

The global pornography industry earns $100 billion per year.
