Finally: McCarthy to Introduce Bill to Fully Fund Border Wall
A Republican congressman will introduce a bill this week to fully fund a wall at the southern border, according to a Tuesday report.
“House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy will introduce a bill this week that will fully fund President Donald Trump’s planned wall along the U.S. border with Mexico, thereby setting the midterm elections up as a referendum on immigration policy,” the report said.
“First, McCarthy, his office confirmed to Breitbart News, will introduce a bill this week that includes the full funding for the border wall–about $23.4 billion more than what has already gone to the wall effort–as well as several other enforcement measures that have already passed the House of Representatives,” the report continued.
Republicans appear to finally be working in sync to achieve Trump’s main campaign promise: controlling illegal immigration into the United States. It is truly a breath of fresh air to the American people.
“For decades, America’s inability to secure our borders and stop illegal immigration has encouraged millions to undertake a dangerous journey to come here in violation of our laws and created a huge loophole to the legal channels to the immigration process where America welcomes immigrants to our country,” McCarthy told Breitbart. “President Trump’s election was a wakeup call to Washington. The American people want us to build the wall and enforce the law. Maintaining strong borders is one of the basic responsibilities of any nation. For too long, America has failed in this responsibility.”
According to the report, the bill will exclusively address a wall and border security. There will be no stipulations about DACA, President Barack H. Obama’s amnesty order for illegal children who came to America with their adult parents.
“McCarthy’s bill introduction comes as he travels Wednesday to the U.S. border with Mexico, where the wall will be built, to meet with Border Patrol agents,” the report said. “While on the border, McCarthy will receive an operations and threat briefing from Border Patrol and law enforcement officials, speaking directly with the men and women who on a daily basis on behalf of the United States confront illegal immigration, drug smuggling, human trafficking, and weapons trafficking.”
As noted in the report, the bill would face grim prospects in the Senate, controlled by only a 51-49 margin by Republicans. Thus, it is imperative that Republicans not only keep, but grow their seat count in the Senate during the 2018 midterms elections.
