So I guess the Mexicans are NOT paying for it?

Rep. Diane Black (R- Tenn.) has introduced legislation that would create a “border wall trust fund,” allowing people to donate money towards President Trump’s border wall.
The Border Wall Trust Fund Act would “allow the Secretary of the Treasury to accept public donations to fund the construction of a barrier on the border between the United States and Mexico, and for other purposes.”
Appearing on Fox News on Monday afternoon, Black said the bill would allow those “who really want to see a secure border” to donate to a trust to raise money for the security measure.
“What happened to Mexico paying for it?” Fox’s Harris Faulkner asked.
“I would like for Mexico to pay for that, and I’m not close enough to the administration to see what kind of pressure they’re putting on them,” said Black, who is running for governor in Tennessee.
Black said that since she’s announced the legislation, she’s received a lot of positive responses from Americans who told her they would “be willing to help fund the wall.” If the bill is passed, Black said she and her husband would be the first to donate.
So first the Mexicans were going to pay for this, then Trump tried to get the taxpayers to pay for it, and now we are crowdsourcing border security?
Next, they will probably just ask Trump supporters to stand along the border, link arms, and physically keep the immigrants from crossing over.
