When government agents make drug-related arrests, it’s not just drugs that they confiscate, there are often large amounts of cash involved as well. Every wonder what happens to all that money? What do you think ought to be done with it?
It might not be politically correct to admit that Mexican drug lords get rich by importing their illegal products into America, but using the money seized from these criminals to further law-enforcement is a terrific idea.
Senator Ted Cruz wants to use the money seized from these Mexican drug lords to fund the president’s border wall. If that isn’t poetic justice, what is?
Let the drug warriors fund their own demise – what a great idea. And apparently it’s one that is under serious consideration. In fact, legislation to do just this is on the way. The title of the bill is an acrostic that spells out the name of enormous drug cartel, El Chapo.
“Cruz’s proposed $14 billion in funding is titled, “Ensuring Lawful Collection of Hidden Assets to Provide Order” or EL CHAPO. U.S. prosecutors are currently seeking drug profits that belong to El Chapo as well as other assets to the tune of $14 billion.”
So what we’ve got hold of here is the terrific idea of forcing the drug dealers to pay for building the border wall. This makes so much sense that it’s hard to believe it is coming from Washington.
According to Senator Cruz, “[f]ourteen 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.”
In spite of the absurd resistance to building the wall from the Democrats and even some Republicans, we’ve got a hunch that President Trump will get this project done. The battle we’re seeing is the result of the Democrats seeking to gain a political victory as they battle the president, even at the expense of the safety of the citizens of our country. Hence the passage of Senator Cruz’s bill would be a major shot in the arm for the president.
Once again we have the spectacle of the safety of Americans being held hostage to political interests that want to see the president defeated no matter how much damage they must do to the country in accomplishing that. Here’s hoping those political interests fail miserably.
