It’s the kind of idea that makes far too much sense for most in Congress to go along with it. Seize a convicted drug lord’s $9 billion or so of assets to better secure the U.S. southern border? Why would Democrats do that when they apparently support a more open border, more crime, drugs, and human trafficking? None of those terrible things matter so long as it means getting more voters, right?
