house Bill H.R. 7073

Should the Border Wall Be Funded Using the Reconciliation Process?

Argument in favor

Border security is too important to be blocked by a Senate filibuster, so funding for the border wall should be provided through the reconciliation process that only requires a simple majority.

We are in a new era . Build the wall now so we can stop this unnecessary risk to children's safety as well as innocent people's lives.

Building the wall will stop ILLEGAL immigration which costs the US upwards of $190 BILLION per Year in both seen and unseen costs. By building the wall ($20 Billion) we can then redirect $170 BILLION towards other services such as infrastructure improvements, clean water, affordable housing and fixing ACA so it is affordable for ALL Americans, not just the Poor.

Argument opposed

This bill is going nowhere and represents an abuse of the budget reconciliation process. Spending $25 billion on a border wall shouldn’t happen without the votes of at least 60 senators.

The wall is going to be just as easy to be used to keep people IN as it is to keep people out. There are more tunnels used for drugs and trafficking children and the expensive wall will not stop that. Employ more border patrol and let them do their jobs. Start filling in the tunnels. We do need to know who is coming in, because of our insane foreign policy we have had for decades. We do not need a wall.

People who are desperate to survive are usually the ones who cross the boarder. They come to work and send money home. Most are treated horribly - like they are worthless than we Americans are. They humble themselves as our paid dirt slaves. And we want to spend $25B to build a wall that will be impossible to be impregnable, with water sources and hills. Its just a damn waste of money. I say- use that money to help rebuild Tijuana and aim south. IF there were jobs for the mexican people and food, clean water and shelter - I guarantee they would rather stay home and be with family. This whole issue needs to be re-thought. MOney on a wall is just stupid and will divide us and keep the tensions on immigration high. I want my tax dollars used to unite the world, not divide it. We spend million$ every year on boarder patrols etc - it would be better spent helping in a real lasting way. When the new financial system begins and the humanitarian funding is released - someone will pay to tear the wall down. Lets not take that step back in time - the Berlin wall came down - North and South Korea are shaking hands at the boarder - the Chinese opened their boarders and nullified their wall. Lets go into the next century promoting world peace and unity - not hate fear and division. I KNOW the crap at the boarder right now is scary. Soros is not going to fund the caravan forever. Our military can control this issue temporarily. By early next year this will all be resolved and the likes of Soros will be dead of in GITMO for treason and crimes against humanity - this will be a time of great celebration! Pray for a better way. I do!!

The drug cartels have Hundreds if not THOUSANDS of tunnels that get them across the border. A wall isn't going to stop them.

    Get it done, someway somehow. This has to happen it is essential to NATSEC! We need to add that ALL sized money from drug trafficking and other criminal enterprises regarding the border be used to fund the border wall. If there is any left over put it into social security, Medicare and Medicaid. All the money saved from cutting of illegal alien welfare would make these programs solvent again.
