Paul Ryan: "It's time for the wall"


On Tuesday, House Speaker Paul Ryan gave his first public endorsement of President Donald Trump’s border wall after tweeting out a video of his visit to the U.S.-Mexico border in the Rio Grande Valley he met with Border Patrol officers on this trip. In the tweet it says “RT if you agree. It is time for the wall.”

In the video he says, “When you see what they’re up against, it really gives even greater respect for what they do. They clearly need more tools and more support to do their jobs effectively.” He then says that House Republicans are going to do something about this. Presumably this statement means that they will try to pass the finances for the wall, “That’s why we’re going to get this done this week.” The video ends with the headline “The Wall: Let’s get it done.”

This is a massive shift from his statements earlier this year. In March of this year, during the crises to keep the federal government running through the fiscal year. Ryan said he would deny the administration’s request for funding for the wall from the Department of Homeland Security.

At that time he said, “The big chunk of money for the wall, really is… next fiscal year’s appropriations because they literally can’t start construction even this quickly.” Earlier in July, the House Appropriations Committee unveiled a bill to fund Homeland Security matches the request for $1.6 billion for the next fiscal year to help kick off the wall’s construction.

Ryan’s actions today seem to confirm that, at least publicly, he’s on board with Trump and seeing that the wall is constructed.
