Paul Ryan: 'It Is Time' for Border Wall With Mexico

Paul Ryan put his support behind President Donald Trump's divisive border wall on Tuesday. It was no ordinary ad.

Paul Ryan apparently now wants to Build The Wall. "When you see what they're up against, it really gives you even greater respect for what they do".

The lack of any specific time stamp - "I had the opportunity to travel", "this week" - works conveniently for Ryan: the footage of him touring the border on horseback and via helicopter is almost six months old. "That's why we're going to get this done this week".

To force passage, House Republicans attached the border wall funding to another funding bill for the Department of Defense and Department of Veterans Affairs, placing Members of Congress in a political bind-oppose the border wall and you oppose funding for veterans and our nation's defenses.

The video shows Speaker Ryan on a visit to the Rio Grande Valley in Texas, where he met with Border Patrol officers.

"It's time for the wall", the website said. That's why the House voted to fully fund the Trump administration's request to build it.

On the campaign trail - and as recently as July 7 - Trump repeatedly promised that the Mexican government would pay for the "big, lovely wall". "Instead, the use of sophisticated monitoring technology, air surveillance, and fencing could secure the border with what Trump could start calling a 'barrier, '" the New Yorker reported.

But the chamber approved an unrelated spending measure last week with $1.6 billion set aside for a down payment on Trump's proposed wall.
