A bright idea just came from Rep. Madison Cawthorn of North Carolina.
Rep. Cawthorn has introduced the “Donument Act” which aims to make the U.S.-Mexico border wall built by President Trump a National Monument.
Why is he doing that?
Well by making the border wall a National Monument the border wall would be protected from any future alterations.

The Western Journal covered Cawthorn’s big idea:
A bill introduced last week by Republican Rep. Madison Cawthorn of North Carolina seeks to have the U.S.-Mexico border wall built by former President Donald Trump declared a national monument.
The legislation, called the “Donument Act” in honor of Trump, would create the “Southern Border Wall National Monument.” It would effectively provide “permanent protection from alteration” for the wall, defending it from any future executive orders by President Joe Biden or anyone else to demolish it, according to a statement from Cawthorn.
The bill would preserve about 289,920 acres in the area along and around the border in California, Arizona, New Mexico and Texas as a national monument.
Approximately 450 miles of the wall was built under the Trump administration, according to the Department of Homeland Security.
I am proud to announce that I dropped the "Donument" Act on the House floor last week.

Rep. Madison Cawthorn is only 25 years old but he’s a lot wiser than some of his colleagues who have been in office for decades.
The Blaze covered the “Donument Act” too:
North Carolina Republican Rep. Madison Cawthorn has rolled out legislation that would protect former President Donald Trump’s southern border wall by making the barrier a national monument.
The proposal is named the “Donument Act,” and would create a “Southern Border Wall National Monument” thereby giving the wall “permanent protection from alteration,” according a news release from the congressman’s office.
“For four years President Trump worked to secure the southern border of the United States by constructing a wall in places where there was little to no fencing,” Cawthorn said in a statement. “President Trump was able to build 455 miles of wall by the time he left office, and had funds allocated for further construction. A secure southern border was no longer simply a dream, it was a tangible reality. Sadly this reality is fast disappearing.
“Immediately after gaining office, Biden issued a slew of Executive Orders, one of which directed a pause in planned wall construction and a reallocation of funds obligated for that purpose,” he continued. “Following Biden’s decision to place partisan politics over the security of the American people, illegal immigration, and drug trafficking rates skyrocketed. It’s time to put the safety and wellbeing of Americans first.”
Did you notice in that Blaze article Cawthorn referred to Trump as President and just called Biden by his name?
That small detail shows you where he stands.
Hopefully, more Representatives like Cawthorn will run in the 2022 primaries.
