If House Speaker Paul Ryan says it’s time, it must be time.

Speaker Ryan is working with President Trump to deliver on his campaign promise of building a border wall and it is finally getting started.

“It is time for The Wall.” In a statement accompanying the video on the speaker’s government website, Communications Director Caleb Smith wrote: “It’s time for The Wall. That’s why the House voted to fully fund the Trump administration’s request to build it.”

Smith also agrees that Congress’s priority is to protect our borders.

“When it comes to securing our border and keeping Americans safe, talk is cheap. These actions show Congress is serious about getting the job done.”

Speaker Ryan has approved of the wall from first hand experience.

“I had the opportunity to travel down to Texas and to go to the Rio Grande Valley and spend time with our Border Patrol,” Ryan can be heard saying in a voiceover in the video below. “When you see what they’re up against, it really gives you even greater respect for what they do. They clearly need more tools and more support to do their jobs effectively. That’s why we’re going to get this done this week.”

This is great news for the American people. Thank you Speaker Ryan for standing with President Trump on this promise to the country.

“I’m in favor of securing the border. And I do believe that you have to have physical barriers on the border.”

It’s about time!
