Three West Virginia State Delegates are set to introduce a bill that would give $10,000,000 from the state to help President Trump build a wall along the southern U.S. border.
WOWK reports, Delegates Carl “Robbie” Martin, (R) Upshur; Patrick Martin, (R) Lewis; and Caleb Hanna, (R) Webster, announced that they plan to introduce the bill.
Del. Hanna announced the plan on “Fox & Friends.”
“We want to take $10 million of West Virginia’s $200 million dollar surplus and give it directly to the southern border to help build the wall,” Hanna said.
The delegates tell WOWK one of the most pressing issues facing West Virginia right now is the rampant drug problem. They say the trafficking of highly potent, illicit drugs across the U.S.-Mexico border fuels the problem.
“We have been in contact with multiple law enforcement officers and judges about the drug epidemic, and every single one has told us 90 percent of the drugs coming to our state are coming in from Mexico,” Delegate Carl Martin said.
