Yes, you read that title right. No, this is not a scam. Ted Cruz found a man to pay $14 billion dollars to build the wall that Donald Trump promised us.
Who is this man, you must be asking right about now?? His name is none other than the the drug lord himself, El Chapo. Think about it:
The fourteen billion dollars is ALREADY in the United States’ possession. We would no longer be forced to fight about who will pay for it, Mexico or US taxpayers….the solution is staring us in the face! Drug cartel money should rightly be used since they made so much of their money across the borders.
This would not only help eliminate the drug problems and illegal immigration, but it would also help fulfill one of President Trump’s biggest campaign promises.
Ted Cruz was right on the money with this one.
“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,” Senator Cruz stated, according to a statement obtained by Breitbart Texas from the senator’s office. “Ensuring the safety and security of Texans is one of my top priorities.”
The Texas senator said that leveraging criminally forfeited assets from El Chapo and other Mexican cartel members and drug dealers can “offset the wall’s cost and make meaningful progress toward achieving President Trump’s stated border security objectives.”
Senator Cruz introduced the Ensuring Lawful Collection of Hidden Assets to Provide Order (EL CHAPO) Act on Tuesday. “The U.S. Government is currently seeking the criminal forfeiture of more than $14 billion in drug proceeds and illicit profits from El Chapo, the former leader of the Sinaloa drug cartel who was recently extradited to the U.S. to face criminal prosecution for numerous alleged drug-related crimes, including conspiracy to commit murder and money laundering,” Cruz stated.
The Mexican government extradited the former Mexican drug kingpin in January, Breitbart Texas’ Ildefonso Ortiz reported. The move to an American prison cell followed months of court battles in Mexico and multiple escapes from prison by Guzman. As part of the agreement with Mexico, Guzman will not face the death penalty in the U.S. for his crimes. Prosecutors filed murder charges against the former drug lord in relation to the killings of a U.S. citizen and two relatives.
Why not!? It’s blood money, if you will. Build the wall and use Chapo’s money. What do you think ?
