GOP Now Wants To Use Billions Of Your Hard-Earned Money To Fund Trump’s Border Wall: Report

On Friday, House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) introduced a bill to fully fund Donald Trump’s proposed border wall, despite the president’s campaign promise that Mexico would fund the wall.

The legislation named, “Build the Wall, Enforce the Law Act,” will use $23.4 billion from taxpayers to construct a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.

The money will mostly be used for constructing the physical barrier, which will cost $16.6 billion. While the rest of the money will go towards technology, operations and other infrastructure costs.

The money would come from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and they would have to see where to cut from in order to fund the building of the border wall.

“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 huge loopholes in the legal channels we use to welcome immigrants to our country,” McCarthy said in a statement.

“President Trump’s election was a wake-up call to Washington. The American People want us to build the wall and enforce the law,” McCarthy said, despite the majority of Americans being against building the border wall.

McCarthy’s bill doesn’t only include the constructing of the border wall, but it also includes cracking down so-called sanctuary cities, boosts penalties for deported criminals who try to re-enter the U.S. and make it easier to deport immigrants who are involved in criminal gang activity.
