Ted Cruz urged his Senate colleagues today to pass the so-called El Chapo Act, which would allocate the $14 billion prosecutors intend to seize from the drug kingpin toward the construction of a wall. Good idea?

How about we use it to help rehabilitate those hurt by drugs

I like the idea better than having American taxpayers paying for the wall. However, I’d rather see the money added to the currently depleted funds for social security and Medicare.

Getting the funds, may be an issue.

Allocate the $5 billion that was requested and the rest, now stay with me here, use to improve our country 🀭

I like the idea of using the $ to protect the border, but I still don’t think the wall is the best way to do it.

It’s putting money towards the wall but acting like it’s not our money. We seized it... it’s ours... the arguments against spending money on the wall don’t change because pieces of paper or imaginary numbers on a computer once belonged to a notorious criminal.

Correction, we haven’t seized it yet. But the seizure is not dependent on how it’ll be spent.

Sure I did. It’s money poorly spent. It doesn’t matter that it came from a criminal. We could spend it on anything, and I don’t support spending it on the wall.

There’s much better use of that money elsewhere and better ways to protect our border.

However, that way Mexico really will pay for the wall...

Nah. Use the money for drug treatment and rehabilitation.

“How are inanimate objects racist now?”

Do you not consider a Nazi flag or KKK hood racists? They are both inanimate objects that represent racism, and the MAGA hat isn’t far behind them.

An ineffective wall is more of a symbol to all immigrants that they are not welcome. If a wall would stop even a fraction of illegal immigrants or illegal drugs that’s one thing, but since it doesn’t it is just a terrible symbol that hurts the United States and everything we stand for.

I did answer your question. The whole premise is wrong because Dems don’t want to take away all guns. Most, like me, are for common sense gun reform, such as background checks for private sales and magazine size restrictions.

They don’t piss me off, and the constitution only states the “right to bare arms,” and nowhere says “arms” can’t be regulated. A nuclear weapon is technically arms but you’re not allowed have one. There are limits, as there should be.

I agree with you on that. I believe in building a wall, however, like you, I dont think that people who oppose a wall should have to pay for it through taxes.

When have walls failed? Perhaps our leaders should take them down from around their homes.

HtheC South Florida
02/12/19 8:07 pm

Ahh the old fence around your home argument....I for one have a fence so that neighbors don't stare at my wife in her bikini, or one day my daughter. I have no expectation that my fence will deter a robber...actually as a teen my father chased away a robber who had jumped our fence and was trying to get access through a rear door. As far as what walls have failed....well walls as early as early civilizations to the great wall to the Berlin wall. Now, I'm no historian or wall expert but I stand my ground by not wanting tax dollars spent on it. Like I said, if we can find alternative dollars then go for it...heck if it's such an emergency just pull it from the defense budget.

Do you think the very high wall around Soros house, Obama’s house, the Kremlin are there to keep out gawkers or perhaps for security?
How about the Israel/West Bank wall? That works. Terrorist acts have gone down. Morocco built 1,700 miles of walls, fences and sand berms between them and Algeria in 1968. It worked. The UN built a wall in Cyprus and northern Turkey. India built walls and fences to keep out Pakistani terrorists. Saudi Arabia built a wall to keep out Yemenis. Hungary has built miles of razor topped security fencing. Egypt built a wall between them and Gaza. Slovenia has built miles and miles of fences and walls.

Walls work. They slow down illegal entry, they help protect citizens and legal residents of the US. I had to jump through the hoops to come here. I have to wait 5 year to become a citizen. I find it offensive when people come illegally, commit crimes and sanctuary cities protect them.

As an immigrant, I have huge issues with this.
