Sen. Bill Cassidy of Louisiana has suggested using asset forfeiture fund money received during enforcement on Mexican cartel activities within the United States.
"The nice thing about this is Congress does not appropriate money in the asset forfeiture fund. It's one the Executive Branch controls itself, so he could use this money without congressional approval. So it's a way forward even if Miss Pelosi has decided she is not as interested in securing the southern border.”
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has described President Trump's effort to build a border wall as an obsession, and a waste of billions of taxpayer dollars.
Both sides have vowed to not back down.
In the words on Sen. Cassidy, ""It's the Mexican cartels paying for the wall, and that would be such sweet justice.”
"We have seen what happens when we allow criminals to come into our country illegally," Landry said, pointing to the 2016 death of St. John Fire Chief Spencer Chauvin when a bus driver living in the U.S. illegally crashed his vehicle and killed Chauvin and Jermaine Starr.
"Spencer Chauvin's wife, Jennifer, and his two children, Jude and Jade, will never be reunited with their husband and father here on this earth."

Hypocrisy on full display regarding the Democrat Party and the border / wall issue. These people speak with forked tongues.
“President Trump is right. There is a crisis on our southern border. Tonight, President Trump outlined the facts on our current border situation. Democrats may not accept them, but this is the harsh reality that our border patrol agents and law enforcement officers face daily. If Democrats continue to refuse negotiations, then President Trump should do what is necessary to protect our national security and enforce America’s sovereign borders.”
Per Sen. John Kennedy, R-Louisiana, “right now Speaker Pelosi is running the show, and she makes no distinction between legal and illegal immigration. And if you disagree with her, then you’re a racist. I think that’s a very unreasonable position that the majority of the American people don’t support because they’re too smart to support it.
From the day President Trump took office, Democrats have vowed to oppose him at every turn in an effort to appease their radical-left base, putting the politics of obstruction over the security of our country.
There’s been no better example of that than the current partial government shutdown.
Thursday evening, President Donald J. Trump called on Democrats to come together and put the safety of the American people before politics.
“Border security must become a #1 priority!” the President tweeted.
Coming out like a beast, the U.S. Representative for Ohio's 4th congressional district blasts the Republican members of the House for kicking the can down the road and repeatedly lying to the American voter regarding immigration and building the wall.
Make this man the next Speaker of the House.
