A border wall with Mexico could initially be financed by withholding federal funds from rogue ‘sanctuary’ cities, counties, and states – an idea that is being floated by President Trump and Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC).
“In the upcoming omnibus budget bill, Congress must fund the border wall and prohibit grants to sanctuary jurisdictions that threaten the security of our country and the people of our country,” Trump said yesterday during his visit to California to inspect border wall prototypes. “We must enforce our laws and protect our people.”
