On Friday a Bill to fund the wall was proposed by  House Majority Leader Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), “Build The Wall, Enforce The Law Act.” McCarthy is attempting to help President Trump deliver on his promise to build the wall along the southern border.

Kevin McCarthy stated about the goal of the bill,

President Trump’s election was a wakeup call to Washington. The American People want us to build the Wall and enforce the law.

Today, I introduced legislation that commits the House to these goals. This bill combats sanctuary cities, transnational gangs like MS-13, human trafficking, and deadly drugs like fentanyl. It supports federal law enforcement like ICE. And it fully funds the Wall by appropriating the full amount requested by President Trump for its construction, bringing the total amount of funding to $25 billion.

The Daily Wire reported the text of the legislation (H.R.7059) pertaining to the wall reads in part:

In addition to amounts otherwise made available by this Act or any other provision of the law, there is hereby appropriated to the “U.S. Customs and Border Protection – Procurement, Construction, and Improvements” account, out of any amounts in the Treasury not otherwise appropriated, $23,400,000,000, to be available as described in subsections (b) and (c), of which –

(1) $16,625,000,000 shall be for a border wall system along the southern border of the United States, including physical barriers and associated detection technology, roads, and lighting; and

(2) $6,775,000,000 shall be for infrastructure, assets, operations, and technology to enhance border security along the southern border of the United States…
