Senator Ted Cruz today introduced a bill to the Senate floor use seized drug dealer funds, specifically those of “El Chapo” the Mexican cartel warlord, to be used to pay for President Trump’s border wall.

““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,” Senator Cruz said. “Ensuring the safety and security of Texans is one of my top priorities.”

Cruz, who sees using criminal property as a means of financing national security measures to offset the cost to the American taxpayer, continued:

“The U.S. Government is currently seeking the criminal forfeiture of more than $14 billion in drug proceeds and illicit profits from El Chapo, the former leader of the Sinaloa drug cartel who was recently extradited to the U.S. to face criminal prosecution for numerous alleged drug-related crimes, including conspiracy to commit murder and money laundering. I believe we can offset the wall’s cost and make meaningful progress toward achieving President Trump’s stated border security objectives.”

El Chapo, whose actual name is Joaquin Guzman, will not face the death penalty in the U.S. although he should. Perhaps the use of his money to stop the flow of drugs into this country is worse than death. He is facing murder charges in relation to the killings of a U.S. citizen and two relatives.
