(TeaParty.org) – As the partial government shutdown enters its third week, Democrats are desperate to convince us the wall is immoral and continue to refuse to fund it.
They’re doing everything they can to blame Trump and their mouthpieces in the mainstream media are eager to help push that narrative, but unfortunately for them, Trump seems more resolute than ever to find a way to pacify the crisis at our southern border and get border agents the physical barrier they consistently say they need.
Actor, patriot, and commentator Chuck Norris just came up with a great solution for funding the much-contested border wall, and shared his idea in a commentary piece for WND.
He drew attention to legislation introduced to the Senate by Ted Cruz, that would use the funds seized from convicted drug cartel leaders for border security and—yes—construction of a border wall.
The bill, cleverly named the bill the “Ensuring Lawful Collection of Hidden Assets to Provide Order Act” — or EL CHAPO Act — a nod Sinaloa drug cartel kingpin, Joaquin Archivaldo “El Chapo” Guzman Lorea, from whom somewhere around $14 billion was seized at his arrest and would be forfeited if he is ultimately convicted.
Cruz recently stated in a media release that Congress has the mandate to secure the border. He said that “Ensuring the safety and security of Texans is one of my top priorities. Indeed, I have long called for building a wall as a necessary step in defending our 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,” Cruz added.
Norris wrote in his column in support of Cruz’s idea:
“If you didn’t know, El Chapo is almost entirely responsible for the majority of drugs that come up through the U.S. southern border. As the co-founder and head of the Sinaloa Cartel, he is the #1 supplier of marijuana, cocaine, heroin and methamphetamines into the U.S. If you or your loved ones have ever tried or been addicted to illegal drugs, odds are they originated from the Sinaloa Cartel.”
He then proceeded to cite several examples of how broad the Sinaloa’s drug trafficking network was inside the U.S., as well as the vastness of the wealth they have accumulated, as well as how the estimated $14 billion of El Chapo’s money would provide more than enough of what we need to cover the cost of a border wall.
“Is Sen. Cruz’s EL CHAPO Act not a brilliant idea to fund the border wall between the U.S. and Mexico? And guess what? A Mexican pays for it after all — one evil hombre who has repeatedly raped America’s communities and the souls of precious millions through narcotics and other criminalities for the past three decades,” wrote Norris.
“Think of the impact passing the EL CHAPO Act could have,” Norris explained. “First, El Chapo’s drug monies could fully fund the completion of the entire U.S. southern border wall without a single dime more from the federal government or American taxpayers.
“Second, simultaneously the majority of El Chapo’s own drug trafficking into our country would be greatly diminished using his own monies.”
“Third, president Trump could fulfill his primary campaign promise. Fourth, the Democrats would be able to open their government the same day the EL CHAPO Act passed,” Norris continued.
He added, “Let it be clear: Passing that single bill could be the compromise they all are looking for, and it is the best win-win-win-win solution the Congress and president could ever enact!”
Norris is definitely on to something…what do you think?
