house Bill H.R. 48

Prohibiting the Use of Taxpayer Money to Build the Border Wall

Argument in favor

The federal government shouldn’t spend taxpayer dollars to build a barrier on the U.S.-Mexico border, and this bill would require that all funds for such construction come from the Mexican government.

The kool aid is working. Right vs wrong is now defined by whether Trump approves or disapproves of it. Affordable health care Trump calls socialism. Living wage again socialism. Equal rights again socialism. Anti racist policies again socialism. A bunch of zombies saying yes sir Mr. President. What is that?

No wall. Period. Your republican hero Ronald Reagan, famously said to tear down a wall just like the one proposed by trump. Walls are ugly eyesores that don’t work.

Argument opposed

The southern border is too porous, costing Americans economic opportunity. It’s also a security risk, due to drugs, weapons, and other security risks entering through the border. The border wall needs to be built, and taxpayer money should be spent if necessary.

H.R 48 - Rep. Lee’s Blocking Funds For The Southern Border Security. FYI: Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX), The southern border is too porous, costing Americans economic opportunity. It’s also a security risk, due to drugs, weapons, and other security risks entering through the border. The border wall needs to be built, and taxpayer money should be spent if necessary. This is nothing more than Representative Sheila Jackson Lee following the Progressive ideology opposing the construction of of the porous Southern Border between Mexico 🇲🇽 and the USA 🇺🇸. This resistance to the construction is nothing more than the Democrats wanting to to foster the expansion of their voter base. They’ve no concern for the dramatic consequences of the increasingly flow of addictive narcotics, added by Mexican 🇲🇽 assistance, into the USA 🇺🇸. Representative Sheila Jackson Lee, be advised that the Dept. of Homeland Security (DHS) is taking the actions necessary to ensure that displaced persons receive the humanitarian assistance they need. I’m in agreement that the Dept. of Justice (DOJ) should appoint 100 additional immigration judges. The southern border is too porous, costing Americans economic opportunity. It’s also a security risk, due to drugs, weapons, and other security risks entering through the border. The border wall needs to be built, and taxpayer money should be spent if necessary. SneakyPete......... 👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻. 3*10*19..........

The border wall needs to be built using taxpayer money because it is protecting the taxpayers, why is this question even being asked, that's a rhetorical question, the wall works everywhere else get the politics out of this and protect our country. This is your responsibility Congress do it.

    If the democrats want it to pass it is not good for Americans! How about it democrats can you once think about the people that elected you and put you in power? We put you there to help us! Yes Sen. Schumer I made the mistake of voting for you in 2016 because I thought you had New York’s back. That you would work with our President to do what’s right for hard working AMERICANS! Not give all our tax money to illegals. I want my tax money to go to the wall, I don’t want it to go to illegals or planned parenthood for abortions! But nobody asked us what we want!

    We need to fix our infrastructure all around this country which would help our fellow Americans in their daily life. We all helped by our voices to get the Berlin Wall down but our President wants to build an even bigger one which most people do not think will change the minds of the people coming here seeking Asylum. Please do not support this Wall or use of hard earned taxes. Change the system!!

    BUILD THE DAMN WALL. Our country and people needs this wall for several reasons. One most reason is the people of our country from terrorist, drugs, human trafficking and the destruction of our country through over population and our economy. This country was discovered, founded by those to escape the tyranny from an unjust Government and control of there lives. They set the limits by creating three equal branches of Government, with a check & balance that would oversee of any Government herein becoming what they had escaped from. Our boarders now more than ever needs protecting from those that seek to do harm to our country and its people. We as Americans have established laws to deal with imagination and they should be enforced. Congress has also a huge part of this and should work to improve our imagination system, which is now in desperate need of repairing. Our President, D. Trump has the authority to call a National Emergy on our boarder regardless of either party that occupies our House. I support President Trumps measures to protect our country and all Americans.

    Over and over, conservatives have said that Trump is just keeping a campaign promise and since he “won” the election he’s “entitled to build it. This bill just holds Trump to his promise- his whole promise. It’s a hell of a lot better than doing an end run around Congress’s power of the purse. As the constitution says Article 1; Section 9: No money shall be drawn from the treasury except as Appropriated by law... Not by a President declaring an emergency he “didn’t have to do” because Congress didn’t move when he said jump.

    A wall is irrelevant. Why is this even still being argued? If a wall would work, it would exist already. Trump isn't the first president to come up with this idea, but he has the only one who will cause a government shutdown and plan to declare an emergency (that's an oxymoron) about it. It is a waste of money and resources.

    Vital to national security although not completely effective. If you dont support securing our border, why are we funding social projects in foreign countries that far exceed the cost of the wall.
