According to a January 7th article in Newsweek Magazine, Texas Senator Ted Cruz wants $14-billion in drug money seized from Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman to pay for the border wall with Mexico. Cruz is asking supporters to become “citizen co-sponsors” of the bill known as the “El Chapo Act.” On the surface it seems to make sense to and does not cost the American tax payer one red cent.
Here is what our KGNC Listeners are saying…….
Fantastic idea – unknown
The drug dealers are a large part of our national problem along the border. Take El Chapo’s money and build the wall. Use the leftover to fill in all the tunnels they utilize to smuggle drugs and illegal aliens..sorry, guess that is now referred to as undocumented immigrants. John in Amarillo
Go for it! – unknown

I approve as long as I’m not seeing it come from taxes – Brian via facebook
Can’t. The politicians and agents already chopped that up long ago – Mike via facebook
Disapprove. Can’t trust em – Yo A’mon via facebook
Not a bad idea – Channing via facebook
Best idea in a long time…Hell YES!!!! Pablo
Yes absolutely.The Cartel abuses their own citizens by collecting a fee to protect them and then pay bad Americans to get drugs into our country and all that money should have been used for helping their country not trying to seize our country. But the only protection will can get is to collect it from them. Sandy
Hell Yeah – David
Larry from Amarillo would be poetic justice for all that drug money to pay to build the wall and I just descendancy it build the wall collapse the tunnels everything they can to seal the Border then to let government officials decide what to do with the money
Im for it, but at the same time; how is that any better than the drug dealer spending the money. We basically just took drug money and want to spend it; not to mention, since when does it take “billions” to do anything. Talk about price gouging at its finest! Were already paying out the wazoo in taxes, build with that and cut in other areas. Drugs never end if we keep spending the money.
