Republican Senator Ted Cruz is back, he still hasn't shaved, and he's got something to say about Trump's proposed wall along the southern border: "Build that sumbitch!"

Actually, this is what he said as reported by the Daily Caller:

Cruz has reintroduced the Ensuring Lawful Collection of Hidden Assets to Provide Order Act, or EL CHAPO Act, to Congress.

The bill would designate any money and assets seized from notorious gangster Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán and allocate them for the construction of the border wall. El Chapo was extradited to the U.S. in 2017 to face charges related to running one of the most notorious drug cartels in the world.

His net worth at the time of arrest was $14 billion.

Cruz ultimately predicts that Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer will not “even spend El Chapo’s money to build the wall.”

So what do the Chicks on the Right think?

Mock:

"What legitimate argument is there to this? It makes perfect sense. If there's $14 billion that's been confiscated from criminal behavior, why not use that to build the wall?"

Daisy:

"Because Trump would win and Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer can't have that."
