Norris lauds promising legislation that would fund the construction of the wall…
Chuck Norris has drawn attention to a piece of legislation re-introduced into the Senate by Republican Texas Senator Cruz that would use the seized funds of convicted drug cartel overlords for border security and border wall construction.
Cruz wants El Chapo to forfeit his $14 billion in assets to the U.S. government, which could then be used for the barrier.
On Sunday, Norris penned a piece for WND, formerly known as World Net Daily. In the piece, headlined “An incredible solution to building the border wall,” Norris backs a proposal to have Mexico’s biggest drug lord fund construction of a barrier on the U.S.-Mexico border.
“I have written many articles over the years, but I have never written an article more important than this one. While Democrat and Republican leaders in Washington are polarized and in gridlock over how to pay for a wall on the U.S. southern border with Mexico, U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) is a Lone Ranger with a Tonto-sized idea riding into town to get the job done in a way that would cost taxpayers nothing at all,” he writes. More
TedCuz: “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.”
When drug dealers get busted, the local law enforcement agencies frequently add cars, SUVs, airplanes, and boats to their patrols. Don’t see why the US couldn’t take Chapo’s money and put it to really good use.
Cruz’s bill is known as EL CHAPO, which stands for the Ensuring Lawful Collection of Hidden Assets to Provide Order (EL CHAPO) Act. You can the bill in full here.
Wouldn’t it have been nice if our so-called Republican House and Senate could have gotten Ted Cruz’s bill passed back in April 2017?
