El Chapo is Guilty, Why Not Pass Ted Cruz’s Bill To Build The Wall With Cartel Cash?

Mexico really can pay for the wall.

Published

Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzmán Loera, one of the most storied drug kingpins in history, was convicted on 10 federal charges Tuesday, including “engaging in a continuing criminal enterprise, conspiracy to launder narcotics proceeds, international distribution of cocaine, heroin, marijuana and other drugs, and use of firearms.”

The criminal amassed a fortune of $14 billion during his decades running the brutal Sinaloa Cartels, which is responsible for unspeakable brutality. Now, the federal government seeks a forfeiture judgment of that cash, and just in the nick of time.

It is three times the amount requested by President Donald J. Trump to build a wall at the southern border, which would put a huge dent in the activities promulgated by those like El Chapo. Using his cash for a border wall would be apropos, and it wouldn’t cost the taxpayer a dime.

U.S. Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas.) proposed in January that El Chapo’s fortune be used to build the wall.

“Ensuring the safety and security of Texans is one of my top priorities,” Cruz said while introducing the Ensuring Lawful Collection of Hidden Assets to Provide Order Act (ELCHAPO). “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.”

With Democrats in Congress dead set on deny Trump the wall, and Trump himself balking at the idea of declaring a national emergency to build the wall, Cruz’s plan might actually be the best option available. It completely levels the Democrats’ argument that a wall is fiscally irresponsible (not that Democrats actually care about fiscal responsibility) leaving them only with the “immorality” argument, which is flimsy at best.

Not to mention it forces them to choose between siding with a notorious drug lord and the security of United States.

El Chapo faces a mandatory sentence of life in prison. He will appeal his conviction, but will likely never see the light of day again. He has no use for the money. We might as well do something positive with it.

Border Migrants Demand Biden Grant Amnesty – Wearing Biden Campaign Shirts!

This is America Last.

Published

on

Asylum seekers demonstrated at the San Ysidro border crossing south of California on Wednesday, urging Joe Biden to provide them with immigration amnesty. The migrants were wearing Joe Biden campaign shirts, in a nod to Biden’s pledges to grant amnesty and citizenship to illegal immigrants.

The Biden administration has already suspended President Trump’s “Remain in Mexico” asylum policy, in which economic migrants trying to game the US immigration system were required to wait adjudication of their cases in Mexico. This prevented rampant immigration fraud, with migrants frequently going missing after lodging their initial claim in the court system.

Biden has already admitted thousands of migrants waiting to enter the US under the Remain in Mexico policy, but the pace he’s moving at is insufficient for the tens of thousands of people waiting at the border. One of the migrants in Biden’s campaign shirts admitted she had come to the border for economic purposes.What I want is to enter (the United States) and to be given the opportunity for my son to study, to move on.” Low quality of education systems in an applicant’s country is not accepted as a valid claim to asylum in the United States.

Biden has a strong constituency of support with illegal immigrants, who form a strong majority of the economic migrants who cross the southern border and are ultimately deported. However, under Biden’s “America Last” approach of open borders, it’s likely that the migrants will ultimately be granted residency, welfare, and possibly more if they’re granted asylee status.

Biden administration officials have denied the existence of a ‘crisis’ at the border, even with Customs and Border Patrol officials projecting that over 100,000 illegal alien minors will reach the border in May alone, hoping to take advantage of Biden’s open borders and globalist policies.

Under America Last, the interests of citizens are no longer the ultimate priority.
