In a recent interview, a Republican senator proposed a new way to fund the border wall.
The best part?
He has a legislative path to make it a reality, and better still, his plan is sure to make true patriots smile.
We know the Southern border will never be secure without an actual wall, right? Coyotes—the people who sneak across the border—just laugh at our current measures.
Some parts of the border are completely unguarded, while others have flimsy fencing or easily-climbable barriers. Border patrol does not have enough man power to guard it all.
Despite this disturbing fact, Congress refuses to act; even with many Republicans in both chambers, they are not funding Trump’s biggest promise. It seems like many conservatives don’t really want to end illegal immigration…
But now a fantastic new strategy has emerged, thanks to one imaginative senator. It will make Mexico pay after all, in a brilliant move.
“Republican Sen. Bill Cassidy (La.) said he believes the United States should ‘confiscate’ money from Mexican drug cartels to fund President Donald Trump’s proposed border wall during an interview with Breitbart News.
‘The cartels move about $110 billion a year from the United States to Mexico,’ Cassidy told the conservative news outlet.
‘If we can stop that, confiscate that money, we can use cartel money to build the wall. It won’t be the Mexican government, it’ll be the Mexican cartels [paying for the wall], and that’s probably the better party to build it.’
Cassidy also told the outlet he believed sanctuary cities should ‘pay consequences’ for shielding immigrants living in the U.S. illegally from deportation within their boundaries.”
How perfect is that?
Mexico might be opposed to this seizure of funds, as many top Mexican officials are in collusion with the cartels. But they have no say in what America does.
Much of the delay in building the wall has been about funding, after all. Democrats and some Republicans don’t want to use billions of U.S. tax dollars to fund the project, and that makes sense.
Therefore, this plan should have everyone on board: this money will be taken from criminals. They have no right to it, anyway, and using it to build security against them would be appropriate.
The only politicians against such a move are people who don’t want the wall at all.
They have to openly explain to the public that they’d rather let drug dealers and terrorists enter America than have a secure border. For all their “resistance,” though, Democrats are too cowardly to admit that.
