    No, it doesn't say it must be related to those things.
    The Rio Grande is on the border anyway.

The first statute you posted is nonsense, however.

    Yeah they all held Rand in very high regard. I was pleasantly surprised. No one acknowledged he had a bill that would have payed for his wall "from Congress."

    The Trump people whether right or wrong hold this one real close to their hearts. I dont think they will forget this one. The 12 republicans are now traitors according too trump fans and a lot of Republicans.

    Rand may have miscalculated and shot his chance at 2024

    Glad that he voted against the bill, sad that he did so only on Constitutional grounds (contra the underlying anti-immigrant policy).

    I assume that was a futile attempt at pandering to Trump's base.

    ...which nicely illustrates said futility.
