Senator Cruz Pushes ‘El Chapo Act’ to Pay for Trump Border Wall
New: Senator Ted Cruz has a plan to use seized assets from drug kingpins such as El Chapo, who was recently extradited to the U.S., to fund the border wall as well as border security.
The idea behind the act is that U.S. prosecutors are looking to allocate $14 billion in drug profits and other assets of El Chapo’s. Numerous other drug traffickers and high-level figures in cartels’ assets have also been seized and would be part of the financial haul. The acronym for the act stands for: Ensuring Lawful Collection of Hidden Assets to Provide Order.
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.
If this works, this will be a huge win for the Trump administration and would help us BUILD THE WALL!
