House panel approves $10B for border wall

October 5, 2017

The House Homeland Security Committee approved Wednesday a border security bill that includes $10 billion for a border wall.

The Border Security for America Act, proposed by committee Chairman Michael McCaul (R-Texas), was passed on a party-line 18-12 vote.

The bill includes the $10 billion in border wall funding, $5 billion to improve ports of entry and adds 5,000 agents to both the Border Patrol and Customs and Border Protection.

The legislation would also authorize the federal government to reimburse states up to $35 million for use of National Guard assets to reinforce border security.

    Israel has a fence, our super max prisons have fences, Gen. Kelly supported a fence. Every expert says a fence so why are we building a wall? The fence in San Diego is 97% effective. Even President Trump every now and then says it could be a fence. So why not do it right instead of wasting money on building a wall. The $10 billion could secure the whole border with a fence but only a third of the border with a wall. The plus is it would be a lot faster to build since we already have a lot already in place. Spend the money on technology and people. Ask the experts.

      Really Bob? I hope a couple illegals come and visit you some day, tie you up, rape your wife and molest your kids. Then you just might start to think maybe those “experts” are wrong. Hope your knee hurts really bad. You’re a draft dodging ass hole!

        I guess having a symbol is more important then something that works. You are the one supporting the open border with the stupid wall that the people who know what they are talking about don’t want. I would rather be in pain then be as stupid as you.
