Half of it will be given to a special commission headed by Rep. John Culberson (TX 7) to purchase weapons for volunteer Minute Men vigilantes.

The other half will be given to a subcommittee of the DNC to vie for a stronger social support network in Mexico (hence preventing the problem of illegal immigration).
