If you missed Sen. Ted Cruz’s suggestion, he says the federal government should pay for a border wall between the U.S. in Mexico with the assets that will be seized from El Chapo Guzman, who was convicted Tuesday of running an illegal drug smuggling operation.
Sen. Ted Cruz wants to build the wall and he’s going to make El Chapo pay for it https://t.co/BUPhwFnKWS

El Chapo’s lawyer didn’t take too kindly to the suggestion.

So, Cruz decided to help him out of his confusion.
El Chapo’s lawyer seems confused. Nobody is asking for voluntary contributions. After El Chapo’s 10 convictions, DOJ will begin criminal forfeiture proceedings to seize every penny of El Chapo’s $14 Bn illicit fortune. My legislation would, in turn, use those $ to build the wall. https://t.co/pAh7l4pnP9

Whether you like him or not, Cruz does tend to come up with some creative ideas.
Of course, it makes way too much sense to actually happen.
