A top Republican has launched a brilliant plan to save Donald Trump’s border wall.
North Carolina GOP Rep. Madison Cawthorn introduced a bill that would Trump’s border wall declared as a ” national monument.”
The legislation is called the “Donument Act” in honor of Trump and would create the “Southern Border Wall National Monument” to provide “permanent protection from alteration” for the wall, defending it from any future executive orders to demolish it.
“I am proud to announce that I dropped the “Donument” Act on the House floor last week. This bill would protect the southern border wall built by President Trump by creating a Southern Border Wall National Monument. This is the first step towards finishing the wall,” he wrote.

Cawthorn previously introduced a bill in the House to revoke three executive actions by the Biden administration on immigration and border policy that had overturned some of Trump’s executive actions.
Today I introduced a bill to terminate certain executive actions by the Biden Admin.
This bill is designed to revoke harmful policies enacted by the Biden Admin which resulted in the #BidensBorderCrisis.

“Joe Biden’s open borders initiatives will wreak havoc on the national economy, and severely undermine rural communities. NC-11 suffers when the interests of illegal immigrants are placed above the interests of American citizens. Rep. Cawthorn pledges to work to end the Biden Administration’s policy of ‘Americans last, immigrants first,’” Cawthorn’s office said in a statement.
Joe Biden’s lax immigration policies and welcoming tone have resulted in border crossings by convicted criminals surging by 380 percent in one sector at the U.S.-Mexico border.
According to the National Pulse:
Customs and Border Patrol revealed figures showing that one of 20 border sectors is experiencing a nearly 400 percent increase in attempted border crossings.
The shocking figure is buried in a recent Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) press release, “Convicted Murderer and an MS-13 Arrested by RGV Border Patrol.”
The press release details how the Rio Grande Valley (RGV) sector of the border has arrested 1,625 criminal aliens in the fiscal year 2021 in comparison to 338 migrants last year:
“With the rising numbers of unaccompanied alien children, family units, and single adults encountered by Border Patrol; criminal alien apprehensions are also increasing. RGV sector has apprehended 1,625 criminal aliens fiscal year to date, compared to 338 this time last year, a 380% increase,” CBP reveals.
“These criminal aliens were convicted here in the United States for crimes other than immigration, ranging from murder, sexual crimes, assault, and narcotics trafficking,” the press release clarifies.
The border crisis created by the Biden administration is about to get a lot worse in the coming months.
According to a report from CNN, internal government calculations from the Biden administration project that officials expect to encounter an estimated two million people at the border in 2021.
The Biden administration is projecting that the number of unaccompanied children crossing the U.S.-Mexico border could spiral from more than 16,000 this month to as many as 26,000 in September, Axios reported.
Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich is going after Biden with everything he has.
In a letter, Brnovich urged Republican Gov. Doug Ducey to declare a state of emergency in the state and deploy the National Guard to deal with the surge in migrants at the U.S.-Mexico border.
“Reversing the devastating trends at the border will require enforcing the rule of law and holding the federal government accountable,” Brnovich said, urging the state government to act “swiftly.”
Brnovich calls on Ducey to declare a state of emergency and convene the state’s emergency council to “address the border crisis and the human and illegal drug trafficking that will continue to flow from it.”
