First Privately-Funded Border Wall Starts Construction Aiming to ‘Give America a Present’ This Memorial Day

Fox News/YouTube

During an interview on “Fox & Friends,” former Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach revealed that the first privately funded border wall is being built.

The former state official explained how it was the first time that a privately funded wall had been built on the border, covering up a gap in the border that had been used for illegal border crossings.

“This is the first time in American history that a private organization called ‘We Build The Wall,’ this is the first time any organization has built border wall on private land. It’s happening right here in the El Paso area and it’s not just any piece of land. This piece of land is right where the El Paso wall separates Ciudad Juarez, where that wall ends, there’s been a half-mile gap between the existing wall and Mount Cristo Rey.”

We Build The Wall was founded by triple amputee veteran Brian Kolfage who saw a way to build fill in the gaps in the border with funding construction through private donations. Kobach pointed out that the specific gap they were closing up had been used to smuggle drugs as well.

“And it was a ridiculously large gap where the smuggling of both drugs and people would go through,” Kobach.

Watch:

According to Kobach, they were originally told that they would be unable to build border security on the piece of land, but the privately funded project is almost complete.

“But get this, the Army Corps of Engineers said that piece of land is too rugged to build on, you can’t build there,” said Kobach. “Well, we built the wall and proved them wrong, and the wall has been going up over the weekend. We’re working 24/7 over the holiday weekend to give America a present on this Memorial Day.”

As IJR Red previously reported, many border patrol officials have requested more security for the wall due to the immigration crisis.

Americans being can-do Americans. Fire nonperforming “employees” (House demoRATS) and replace with “can-do employees” and BUILD THE WALL now if not sooner. WE, THE PEOPLE want our borders secure…radical, liberal, socialistic, OWO, progressive demoRATS want open borders to restock their bought & paid for voting plantation…since many Afro-Americans have wised up and no longer block vote 100% for the do-nothing demoRATS…PERIOD!!!!

Thank you to all that have worked so hard to build the wall that covers the El Paso gap. God bless you all and give you many more resources to finish building the wall.

City officials in Sunland Park, New Mexico, have delivered a “cease and desist” order to the owners of land where a private border wall is being built.
The project doesn’t have proper permits to proceed because an application filed was incomplete.

The permit also is for a wall 6′ high, too.

These clowns are more than confused – they are completely incompetent.

just wish this had come about while my family still owned their land along the rio grande and it was about a mile stretch –would gladly let them put the wall up no charge for the land donation-and I would bet a lot of my neighbors would have done the same-we had electrified fences -but that only moves the cattle not wetbacks-

Guys, the ilegal immigrants are not climbing or trespassing the wall, they go to the Customs Post and relinquish themselves to the officers…I understand yours and everyone concern with this problem..I respect your point of view, but a Wall is an unsuccessful step, nobody can stop anyone in our borders asking for asylum, not even a sky high wall..I’m not a politician or some alike, but what about, if we help these countries to improve their situation, maybe the immigrants stay there..anyway, everybody knows that US is not the Promised Land, we have to work, pay taxes and is not… Read more »
