Let’em drown

Now here’s an excellent plan.

President Donald Trump has been briefed on a plan that would use the Army Corps of Engineers and a portion of $13.9 billion of Army Corps funding to build 315 miles of barrier along the U.S.-Mexico border, according to three U.S. officials familiar with the briefing.

The money was set aside to fund projects all over the country including storm-damaged areas of Puerto Rico through fiscal year 2020, but the checks have not been written yet and, under an emergency declaration, the president could take the money from these civil works projects and use it to build the border wall, said officials familiar with the briefing and two congressional sources.

And that plan is completely disgusting and outrageous, so obviously that’s what he’ll do.

He could do it if he declares an emergency, and word is he’s going to do just that.

Under the proposal, the officials said, Trump could dip into the $2.4 billion allocated to projects in California, including flood prevention and protection projects along the Yuba River Basin and the Folsom Dam, as well as the $2.5 billion set aside for reconstruction projects in Puerto Rico, which is still recovering from Hurricane Maria.

Sure, great. Let people in Puerto Rico and California (brown people and Democrats!) drown in order to put up a wheel wall to tell brown people “We hate you, you can’t come here.”

City on a hill, man.
