With all the BS coming from Washington DC lately, who would believe the Democrats in the House would do something like introducing a Bill that forbids American Taxpayer money paying for a U.S.-Mexico border Wall and at the same time, make Mexico pay for it !! 😂

Yup sounds nuts.

But it appears to be true !! 😎

U.S. Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee (D, TX) has actually done it !!!

Is this all BS or what now ?

HR 7332



DEMS INTRODUCED BILL REQUIRING MEXICO TO PAY FOR THE WALL, AND NO ONE SEEMS TO HAVE NOTICED

Democratic Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee of Texas introduced legislation forbidding construction of a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border — unless Mexico pays for it.

Lee introduced the Protect American Taxpayers and Secure Border Act into the House on Dec. 19, which would “prohibit taxpayer funds from being used to build a wall between Mexico and the United States,” and further require that any barrier constructed on the southern border “be paid for using funds provided by the Government of Mexico.”

She referred the bill to the House Committee on the Judiciary and the Committee on Homeland Security, and already has four cosponsors: Democratic Reps. Karen Bass of California, Marcia Fudge of Ohio, Joaquin Castro of Texas and Yvette Clarke of New York.


"Things really getting crazy in DC eh"

You mean the bill to kill the wall. I don't trust Lee to be acting to help in the effort.

edit:


(a) In General.—No taxpayer funds may be obligated or expended to build a wall or barrier intended to impede travel between Mexico and the United States.

(b) Foreign Payment Required.—Any wall or barrier described in subsection (a) that is proposed to be built shall be paid for using funds provided by the Government of Mexico.


Might this mean any future additions to the current wall are subject to Mexico funds, not US. Maybe maintaining the border also.

And the government will not reopen until the bill passes the house and the Senate and the president vetoes it. That sounds about right.

Because some US funds may be need, at least at start up. But since laws intended to stop illegals are ignored, this new one can be ignored also.

Most of the people who live in the border states are tired of the situation and paying for these people.

The Dems are just drafting the Bill the way the Donald sold it to his supporters, why should anyone be upset about it?

Indirectly, they will. Look, if the left can paint tax cuts as "lost taxpayer revenue" then Trump can paint the savings of billions of dollars in illegal immigration expenses within the US that will no longer be as prevelant or costly after the Wall is completed as "Mexico paying the price tag."

bull# and you know it

he lied
a major one

they are not and never were going to pay for it

why do you deflect all the time

is this another one of those song and dance deals where he said a thing but you only know what he meant if you are in the orange club?

he said mexico was going to pay for it

not indirectly in a round about way via savings we might start to see in a decade

Well, the Mexicans can build it for half the cost because their workers work for way less pay. Lots of siestas though. The mexicans can negotiate with the US and the cartel to help fund the wall, the US gives them half of their cost, costing taxpayers here way less, and the Cartel will pay for the tunnels to sneak the drugs through at multiple points of the wall. I suppose some US officials have already discussed this with the cartel, a lot of US officials will get great cartel bonuses this year if we build the wall.

We should be asking how many tunnels they need to traffic dope and to let in illegals through those tunnels.. Maybe ten, they could come right into a grocery store and the illegals can carry in fresh produce to save the store money.

The Freedom Wall needs to be built so that it can be repurposed for Humanitarian causes .. once Mexico pins down and subdues the historically embedded criminals running their Country and removes them from operation including from jail by appropriating every single asset in the Country and by aggressively pursuing all assets held out of the Country and by FOLLOWING HOME AND INFLUENCES FROM OFFSHORE THAT TRY TO PROTECT THESE CRIMINALS...these Anti-Mexican Domestic Terrorists.

Build it...build the Freedom Wall.

WRONG. My position on this has not veered from day 1.
From 2 years ago:
www.abovetopsecret.com...

We eliminate NAFTA and build the wall and the savings on eliminating all of those illegals from America's social spending programs combined with the tariffs on Mexican imports and return of many jobs to the US from Mexico will pay for that wall... Who presently benefits from that social spending and those jobs? Mexico does, obviously. The $100 Billion+ annual tax payer expense to feed, educate, incarcerate, and medically care for all of those illegal aliens is $100 Billion+ Mexico doesn't have to spend on their escapees and the $64 Billion annual US losses thanks to NAFTA are presently $64 Billion additional dollars into Mexico's economy.


We (Trump voters) not only knew that the "Mexico will pay for it" promise was intended to mean through tariffs, policy changes, and savings on illegals, we TOLD EVERYONE ELSE THAT WERE TOO SLOW TO SEE IT how it would work out. This post was from 6 days after he was inaugurated. It was a point I had made previously on ATS as well, including during the campaign.

You don't believe, at all, that changing current trade agreements and the like would indirectly mean Mexico "pays for the wall"?

Indirectly, they will.


So who's gonna pay for it directly, then?
