While the Democrats’ platform for the 2018 midterms is “impeach Trump” the Republican’s are running on THE WALL.
That’s right – the signature platform issue has been entered into legislation as a BILL TO FULLY FUND THE WALL. All 23.4 billion of it. (MORE BELOW.)
About that piece of legislation…
House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) “has signaled his intent to introduce legislation this week that would fully fund President Trump’s wall on along the nation’s southern border,” reported Fox News.
Congress passed a bill already that funded 1.6 billion of the wall in the Omnibus package. The new bill; however, will be called the “Build the Wall, Enforce the Law Act.”
Congressman McCarthy’s “bill will also include measures dealing with sanctuary cities and criminal gangs, among other immigration-related issues, but it will not address the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) policy,” as per Fox News. (MORE BELOW.)
Where is Speaker of the House – Paul Ryan – on this new legislation for the midterms?
Brietbart reported that “outgoing Speaker Paul Ryan hinted at a post-election border wall funding fight on Monday.”
“We intend on having a full-fledged discussion on how to complete our mission to secure the border, and yes, we will have a fight about this,” Ryan said of the wall fight that looms at a news conference on Monday,” Brietbart reported.
See McCathy’s tweet below: “Few things are more fundamental to a nation than a protected border. Proud to introduce the Build the Wall, Enforce the Law Act.”

In ending, do you think McCarthy will be going for the Speakership once Ryan is out of there? Would you rather see him or Rep Jim Jordan from Ohio in the speaker spot? Drop your comment below and tell us what you think!
