Would You Support Using Seized Drug Cartel Money To Build The Wall?

Is this the perfect solution on how to pay for President Trump’s border wall?

 thehill.com reported: Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) is introducing a bill to allow assets seized from drug lords, like Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman, to fund President Trump’s proposed wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.

Cruz’s bill, the Ensuring Lawful Collection of Hidden Assets to Provide Order Act, also known as the “El Chapo Act,” is a reference to the Mexican drug kingpin from the Sinaloa cartel.

The U.S. government is seeking $14 billion from the drug lord as part of its prosecution of Guzman.

 “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,” Cruz said Tuesday, according to Axios.

Guzman was extradited from Mexico to the U.S. in January, pleading not guilty to a 17-charge indictment in a federal court in New York.
The charges allege that Guzman led a continuing criminal enterprise responsible for drug trafficking and conspiracy between 1989 and 2014.

 The U.S. government routinely seizes assets from alleged drug dealers and traffickers
