Pro-Trump Rep Introduces Bill To Fully Fund Wall
 
House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy has announced that he will introduce legislation that included the full funding for President Trump's proposed border wall.

According to Fox News:

House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., has signaled his intent to introduce legislation this week that would fully fund President Trump’s wall on along the nation's southern border.

The legislation by McCarthy, who is looking to drum up support among the GOP's rank and file as he eyes House Speaker Paul Ryan's speakership, is expected to call for full wall funding alongside other enforcement measures already approved in the House. 

“Few things are more fundamental to a nation than a protected border,” McCarthy tweeted on Tuesday. “Proud to introduce the Build the Wall, Enforce the Law Act.”

 

Congress has already funneled $1.6 billion to construction as part of the omnibus spending bill for the 2018 fiscal year, but McCarthy’s new bill would direct about $23.4 billion toward building the wall, a signature issue for Trump.

The bill is also dealing with multiple other immigration issues including DACA, sanctuary cities, and gangs.
