Make El Chapo pay for a wall

What a great idea!  Thanks to Sen. Cruz for this thought.


Earlier this year when a number of Senate Republicans opposed President Trump's emergency declaration to fund the border security wall, we told you about a way for these Republicans to do their jobs and fund the wall legislatively.

It's called the El Chapo Act and it was introduced by Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) to require the billions in forfeited profits of the notorious drug smuggler, Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman, to be reserved for border security measures, including the completion of a wall.

Yesterday, a federal judge sentenced El Chapo to life in prison and ordered him to pay $12.6 billion in forfeiture.

NOW is the time to bring the El Chapo Act up for a vote and to reserve these funds for real border security!

Please send an instant message to your representatives in Washington urging them to pass this legislation.

"There's a justice to it," Senator Cruz said. "You know those billions that El Chapo has were made trafficking illegally across the U.S. border, bringing narcotics across the border, and it is only right that those ill-gotten gains go toward fixing the problems and stopping the next narcotrafficker."

He's absolutely right, and it's time for those in Washington who have made endless excuses for why they can't fund real border security to take action and use these forfeited funds to pay for it.

Tell your representatives – Republicans and Democrats – to support the El Chapo Act right now!

We have a major crisis at the border, and something must be done. In the month of May, authorities apprehended 144,000 people coming across the border illegally. If this continues at this rate for a year, then nearly 2 million people will come in illegally. 

Please send an urgent message to Washington: No more excuses. It's time to secure the border.

Thank you for being part of our team and for doing so much to help us fight for conservative policies in Washington.

Re: Make El Chapo pay for a wall

I sent in my request for my State Reps to do this thing.  I doubt they will have brains enough to do it, but one can always try!  I also added a few lines of my own to the letter, and asked what will happen to El Chapo's money if it isn't used for something like a wall, which is much needed mostly because of creeps like him in the first place.  We'll just see if I get any plausible answers, not just some form letter reply which is what I usually get from these guys.  I detest our State Reps but what are you gonna do?  They were certainly better than the alternatives we had to choose from at the last election, for sure.  Hope we have some new blood coming up soon from this backwards State of ours.
