Wouldn’t it be incredible if our government found a simple solution to a very big problem?
Well, they might just have gotten their chance. Let’s hope they don’t blow it.
Illegal immigration continues to be one of the biggest issues in the U.S. today, which is why President Trump has empowered ICE to do their JOBS.
Of course, the biggest hurdle facing this battle is the construction of the oft-argued border wall.
It’s quite the hot-button topic, as politicians on both sides of the aisle have questions: Who’s going to fund it? Can we really make Mexico pay? If not, is America willing to foot the bill?
Well, one simple option would be to defund the criminal havens known as sanctuary cities; that would save us $27 billion right there, and boom…problem solved.
But that could take a while. In the meantime, Senator Ted Cruz has another fantastic idea, and it’s perfectly logical:
“Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) introduced a bill calling for the use of $14 billion seized from cartel drug lord Joaquin ‘El Chapo’ Guzman to be used to pay for the President’s border wall between the U.S. and Mexico.“
Perfect. Let the drug lord who has inflicted so much crime and misery on the American people fund the means of keeping his kind and his “products” out of the country. Common sense, right?
Senator Cruz even has a bit of a sense of humor: Note the similarity between the letters making up the name of the bill and the name of the drug lord whose ill-gotten gains would fund the wall.
“Senator Cruz introduced the Ensuring Lawful Collection of Hidden Assets to Provide Order (EL CHAPO) Act on Tuesday.”
STORY CONTINUES BELOW…
If you’re unfamiliar with “El Chapo” and his work:
He is “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.”
One thing is for certain; our border agents will be very happy if this wall gets built. The lunatics flooding across our southern border are doing some horrific things to our agents, you know…
Anyway, perhaps the next move would be to designate El Chapo as a benefactor – a memorial to the criminal.
Perhaps something like:
“This section of wall was generously donated by Joaquin ‘El Chapo’ Guzman, who was convicted on multiple counts of money laundering, racketeering, drug trafficking, and conspiracy to commit murder.
He was subsequently executed. Those considering a similar career, take note.”
Of course, we got a bit ahead of ourselves there since the wall has not been built and the trial has not commenced. But we can hope, right?
