Ted Cruz Proposes "El Chapo Act" to Get Border Wall Funding


Ted Cruz may have just solved the border funding issue! Maybe....if you wanna take money from a now convicted drug lord.According to the Senator, by using money taken from El Chapo, Republicans could have the border wall and Democrats get to make sure the taxpayers don't have to fund it. On Tuesday, Cruz brought up his "El Chapo Act" (a proposal he had in 2017), which would seize the Mexican drug lord's profits and put them toward border security. Meanwhile, lawmakers have tentatively agreed to provide $1.4 billion for border security in the hopes of stopping another government shutdown over a funding impasse.
