Democrat congresswoman Sheila Jackson-Lee quietly introduced a bill called the “Protect American Taxpayers and Secure Border Act.”
The bill, with a title that means the exact opposite of what it proposes, was introduced on December 19 and now sits in the House Judiciary and Homeland Security committees.
Here is the text of the bill:
SECTION 1. SHORT TITLE.
This Act may be cited as the “Protect American Taxpayers and Secure Border Act”.
SEC. 2. PROHIBITIONS AND REQUIREMENTS RELATING TO BORDER SECURITY.
(a) In General.—No taxpayer funds may be obligated or expended to build a wall or barrier intended to impede travel between Mexico and the United States.
(b) Foreign Payment Required.—Any wall or barrier described in subsection (a) that is proposed to be built shall be paid for using funds provided by the Government of Mexico.
