Sen. Ted Cruz joins 'Fox & Friends' to discuss his fun plan to pay for the Mexican border wall with money seized from Mexican drug lord 'El Chapo.' Apparently, up to $14 billion have been seized from his gang.
The Ensuring Lawful Collection of Hidden Assets to Provide Order (E.L.C.H.A.P.O.) Act would use fund confiscated from drug dealers and traffickers to pay for border security.
"So Mexico would end up paying for the wall," host Steve Doocy commented. "That's pure genius on your part!"
"El Chapo led the Sinaloa drug cartel," Cruz explained. "There is a sense of justice. A sense of, this is what is right, that the people who are violating the border like crazy, we should use their ill-gotten gains to finally build the wall, and to finally ensure we have the assets to secure the border."
