Texas Senator Ted Cruz thinks he’s cooked up the ultimate plan to fund the controversial Mexican border wall: use El Chapo and other drug lords’ money to fund it! The Ensuring Lawful Collection of Hidden Assets to Provide Order Act–also known as the EL CHAPO Act–was introduced yesterday:
The bill would allow the U.S. to use all cash forfeited by drug lords to pay for the wall and border security.
According to Ted … the U.S. is already gunning for more than $14 billion in drug money and other profits that the Mexican drug lords collected, and Cruz says that will go a long way toward the estimated $20 plus billion in construction costs. (TMZ)
