President Donald Trump has been reaching successes ever since the first day in the office, and especially after his first trip overseas as Commander-in-Chief. One of his most important missions is to secure our borders from unwelcome refugees and illegals. So, after coming back to the United Stats, he didn’t miss a beat returning to his duties.
Still faced with the only thing that’s been holding America’s safety and security back – the ability to fund his promised border wall, the President received an incredible surprise of who just came up as the most unlikely financier.
The fight over who will foot the $12-$15 billion to fund Trump’s U.S.-Mexico border wall is no longer an issue after one person could be forced to pony up the bill for it under the most ironic of circumstances.
The money for the wall is already in America’s possession, and the person who should give ‘permission’ to use it doesn’t have much of a choice.
Senator Ted Cruz just came up with the perfect solution to get moving on one of Trump’s biggest and most important campaign promises.
Cruz introduced a bill calling for the use of $14 billion seized from cartel drug lord Joaquin ‘El Chapo’ Guzman for funding the President’s border wall between the U.S. and Mexico.
Now that ‘El Chapo’ is in custody, it makes perfect sense for the “blood money” in holding to be used against Chapo’s cause.
“Fourteen billion dollars will go a long way toward building a wall that will keep Americans safe and hinder the illegal flow of drugs, weapons, and individuals across our southern border,” Senator Cruz said. “Ensuring the safety and security of Texans is one of my top priorities.”
The entire objective of the border wall is to slow, and eventually stop the flow of drugs and crime into America through avenues established by El Chapo, reports Freedom Daily. His forfeited drug money fortune will “offset the wall’s cost and make meaningful progress toward achieving President Trump’s stated border security objectives,” Cruz’s statement continued.
The bill, appropriately dubbed the Ensuring Lawful Collection of Hidden Assets to Provide Order (EL CHAPO), is expected to get a lot of conservative support.
“The U.S. Government is currently seeking the criminal forfeiture of more than $14 billion in drug proceeds and illicit profits from El Chapo, the former leader of the Sinaloa drug cartel who was recently extradited to the U.S. to face criminal prosecution for numerous alleged drug-related crimes, including conspiracy to commit murder and money laundering,” Cruz stated.
