“It’s time for the wall,” the Speaker tweeted today. The linked video shows Ryan riding in a helicopter and meeting with border patrol agents in Texas’ Rio Grande Valley.
“They clearly need more tools and more support to do their jobs effectively. That’s why we’re going to get this done this week,” Ryan says in the 30-second video.
The appropriations committee approved an unrelated spending measure last week with $1.6 billion set aside for a down payment on Trump’s proposed wall.
The Senate will be more resistant.
