Press Release

WASHINGTON, DC - Congressman Warren Davidson today introduced the Buy a Brick, Build the Wall Act, legislation that would create an account at the U.S. Treasury dedicated to holding public donations for the completion of a wall along the U.S. southern border. 

"Open border radicals make our country less safe for families everywhere. Last year, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) seized 2,379 pounds of fentanyl and 6,967 pounds of heroin - drugs that would otherwise have made their way to Ohio streets for sale. This bill creates a way for our citizens to pitch in and help efforts to secure the border, support President Trump's commitment to build the wall, and keep future generations safe," said Congressman Warren Davidson.

The Buy a Brick, Build the Wall Act allows money deposited in the Border Wall Trust Fund to be used for planning, designing, constructing and maintaining a barrier along the border between the United States and Mexico.
