I don't know how anyone can argue with this idea without exposing themselves as mindless political hacks who oppose it simply because who proposed it.


(CNN)Forget that talk about Mexico footing the bill for President Trump's border wall.
Ted Cruz has the answer -- let El Chapo pay for it.
The conservative Texas senator thinks the $14 billion in assets the US government is trying to get from the reputed drug lord -- whose real name is Joaquin Guzman -- would be a nice down payment on Trump's vision of a "big, beautiful" wall on the southern border.
"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," Cruz said in a statement. "Ensuring the safety and security of Texans is one of my top priorities. We must also be mindful of the impact on the federal budget. By leveraging any criminally forfeited assets of El Chapo and his ilk, we can offset the wall's cost and make meaningful progress toward achieving President Trump's stated border security objectives."

How about we charge each "dreamer" an extra $10k in application fees and apply that to the fund.

Ted Cruz and brilliant in the same sentence?
Liberal Harvard Professor Alan Dershowitz used the term to describe Cruz as his student. Said he was the best debater he ever taught.

Now, do you have a comment on the subject or are you just here for your usual mindless trolling?

How about a one time 50 billion dollar levy on net worth over 10 million.
We get the wall and all it's benefits, and the people who pay for it, barely notice it.

So, you hate the rich more than you do a drug dealing, mass murdering outlaw.

Typical lib logic.

Why should we believe anything this Faux Views mouth says?
