Chuck Norris Supports Cruz's EL CHAPO Legislation

Chuck Norris knows how the U.S.-Mexico border wall can be funded without spending a single taxpayer dollar: use money from Mexico’s most notorious drug lord, El Chapo.

To be fair, Sen. Ted Cruz deserves full credit for the idea, but Norris is throwing his full support behind it and is drawing attention to the important legislation the Texas Republican reintroduced last week.

"I have written many articles over the years, but I have never written an article more important than this one,” he wrote in an op-ed. “While Democrat and Republican leaders in Washington are polarized and in gridlock over how to pay for a wall on the U.S. southern border with Mexico, U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) is a Lone Ranger with a Tonto-sized idea riding into town to get the job done in a way that would cost taxpayers nothing at all.”

Cruz’s bill, the EL CHAPO Act, “would reserve any amounts forfeited to the U.S. Government as a result of the criminal prosecution of “El Chapo” (formally named Joaquin Archivaldo Guzman Lorea) and other drug lords for border security assets and the completion of the wall along the U.S.-Mexico border,” according to a press release about the legislation’s reintroduction.

“Congress has a clear mandate from the American people: secure the border and build the wall,” Cruz said. “Ensuring the safety and security of Texans is one of my top priorities. Indeed, I have long called for building a wall as a necessary step in defending our border. Fourteen billion dollars will go a long way to secure our southern border, and hinder the illegal flow of drugs, weapons, and individuals. By leveraging any criminally forfeited assets of El Chapo and other murderous drug lords, we can offset the cost of securing our border and make meaningful progress toward delivering on the promises made to the American people.”

4. Always liked Cruz, just another reason he should run again after 2020

Or 2020 if President Trump decides to not run
