Sheila Jackson Lee

WASHINGTON, D.C. – A Democratic legislator from Texas has introduced a bill prohibiting taxpayer funds from being used to build a wall between Mexico and the United States.

Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D) of Texas introduced the “Protect American Taxpayers and Secure Border Act” days ago that would require the “Government of Mexico” to pay for “any wall or barrier” built between Mexico and the United States.

Additionally, the bill calls for the Secretary of Homeland Security shall take such actions as may be necessary to secure the southern border by making maximum effective utilization of technology and improved training of U.S. Custom and Border Protection agents and officers. Jackson’s bill call for an increase In Immigration Judges, too. The Attorney General may appoint 100 additional immigration judges in addition to immigration judges currently serving as of the date of the enactment of this Act. Lastly, the bill calls for humanitarian assistance. The Secretary of Homeland Security shall take such actions as may be necessary to ensure that humanitarian assistance is provided to immigrants, refugees, and other displaced persons who are in need of medical assistance and aid to sustain health and life, the bill says.

The bill is now in committee and would face hearings.

President Donald Trump and Congress are involved in a federal government shut down currently, with each side blaming the other politically over wall funding, for the shut down.

    He he, shrewd woman. A law sounding like it is about the enforcement of sovereign integrity while sticking the bill to Mexico, like the president promised to do, yet is designed to make sure the wall does not get built. Trump will have one hell of a time explaining why he’ll veto it should it make it that far.

      Will it come as a shock for you to learn that billionaires have way-better tax lawyers than you do? They also get a LOT more pu$$y than you do. What channel are you on, anyway? Wake up, for chrissakes.

    I never thought the democrats would fall that far off their rockers.
    Whatever happened to the fiscal responsibility of JFK and at least talking like securing our nation was important. It’s embaeassing knowing that I grew up in a Democrat household.
