Dem Rep. Krishnamoorthi on Using El Chapo’s Money to Pay for Border Security Deal: ‘Why Not?’

‘If we can use his money instead of taxpayer money to fund this particular appropriations package, why not?’

KEILAR: “Senator Ted Cruz has said that convicted drug kingpin El Chapo should pay for the wall. This is what he tweeted. He said let’s pass the El Chapo act and make El Chapo pay to secure our border. It’s getting a lot of attention, but do you think that that is any sort of serious proposition?”

KRISHNAMOORTHI: “Very interesting. I don’t know how much El Chapo has, but if he wants to, if we can use his money instead of taxpayer money to fund this particular appropriations package, why not?”
