Sanctuary cities & states may pick up tab for Trump’s Border Wall

Having California pay for the construction would be karmic!

When it comes to blocking President Donald Trump’s plans for the Border Wall, the Democratic Party has displayed imagination, creativity, and enthusiasm rarely surpassed in the annals of human history.

Democrats opposed border wall funding in the latest government spending debate and the White House eventually backed off of its demand to secure the money this month. When the funding fight comes up again in September, Democrats are still likely to deem it a non-starter in negotiations.

“I have said repeatedly and consistently, I will not support an omnibus that includes funding for a wall; not going to do it,” said Rep. Joe Crowley, D-New York, the chairman of the House Democratic Caucus, at a recent press conference.

Conservative representatives are also responding in innovative ways to find funding methods. Recently, Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) has proposed the EL CHAPO Act, directing the use of the expected $14 billion to be seized from Mexico’s infamous drug lord should he be convicted to pay for the big, beautiful border wall.

Now, two other US senators have proposed legislation that would redirect funds away from cities and states that have declared themselves “sanctuary” areas for illegal immigrants toward the border wall construction.
