GOP Senators Introduce “WALL Act” — Request $25 Billion for Trump Border Wall

Posted on 06 December 2018

On Thursday several GOP Senators introduced the “Wall Act” to fund President Trump’s border wall with Mexico.

Senator’s Ted Cruz, John Kennedy, James Inhofe and Mike Rounds introduced the new law that will pay for itself.

The GOP senators say they can fund the bill by cutting off benefits to illegal immigrants in the US.

It’s time to build the Trump wall.

The Hill reported:

Republican senators have introduced legislation to fully fund President Trump’s request of $25 billion for the U.S.-Mexico border wall.

“The WALL Act would fully fund the border wall by closing existing loopholes that provide illegal immigrants with federal benefits and tax credits, without affecting the benefits and tax credits used by Americans,” Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) said in a statement on Thursday.

To pay for the border wall, the Republicans propose to crack down on benefits for undocumented immigrants, including requiring that parents have a Social Security number to claim refundable tax credits, requiring any welfare applicants to prove they are a citizen and increasing minimum fines on individuals who cross the border illegally or overstay visas.

“If you want to receive food stamps and other benefits, then you should prove your citizenship. If you cross the border illegally or overstay your visit to this country, then you should pay a stiff penalty,” Sen. John Kennedy (R-La.) added.

In addition to Kennedy and Cruz, the bill was introduced by Sens. James Inhofe (R-Okla.) and Mike Rounds (R-S.D.).
