The border wall President Trump willing to build shouldn’t be funded by US money but through exploiting seized fortune of convicted criminals & drug lords as Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán, according to Senator Ted Cruz.
The construction of the wall costs $5.7 billion. On the other hand, $14 billion will be seized from El Chapo as his own drug profits only. So, why US shouldn’t benefit from his illegal wealth to build the wall instead of forcing US citizens to endure burdens of construction costs?!
El Chapo Act or ” Ensuring Lawful Collection of Hidden Assets to Provide Order Act” should pass urgently in order to best benefit from drug proceeds after diverting from bosses of cartel to finance Trump’s security border.
Bill tries to pressure more on lawmakers by reintroducing his bill again in January after April 2017 to be validated within spending bill of security border.
$1.4 billion were temporarily provided through a bipartisan lawmakers includes a 55 miles fence along Rio Grande Valley in Texas which assures Cruz’s theory about how drug proceeds could help in providing the required security for the southern border.
“Fourteen billion dollars will go a long way to secure our southern border, and hinder the illegal flow of drugs, weapons, and individuals. By leveraging any criminally forfeited assets of El Chapo and other murderous drug lords, we can offset the cost of securing our border and make meaningful progress toward delivering on the promises made to the American people”, Bill cited in news release of January.
