Senator Ted Cruz found a very smart way to get money to build Trump’s infamous border wall. According to him, U.S. government should take the billions made from seizing El Chapo and use them for the wall’s construction.
“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 Ted Cruz said. “Ensuring the safety and security of Texans is one of my top priorities.”
This plan appears to be quite possible, as it makes a lot of sense. The money taken from the drug lord “El Chapo” should definitely be used in securing our southern border. We shouldn’t live with the fear of illegal immigrants, which is Trump’s intention.
“The United States 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 United States to face criminal prosecution for numerous alleged drug-related crimes, including conspiracy to commit murder and money laundering,” Cruz went on.
Cruz is currently planning on writing a bill that outlines the exact reasons why the U.S.A needs this border so much. The bill is still in the making, and should it get passed, it will be a tremendous win for the Trump administration.
