‘We Build the Wall’ Resumes Construction After Permit Snag and Unveils Its New Southern Border Barrier

“We Build the Wall” building group is back to work constructing the first privately funded U.S.-Mexico border wall.

The group recently announced plans to start building in the El Paso area to fill a half-mile gap between existing border walls. Its plans then came to a halt on Tuesday when the city of Sunland Park, New Mexico, ordered the group to stop due to an “incomplete” building application, which the group’s founder snapped back saying it was a “political issue.”

“There is no political motivation on the part of the city, simply our interest in having our code and ordinances complied with,” Sunland Park City Manager Julia Brown responded at the time.

However, “We Build the Wall” resumed its work on Thursday morning as the city lifted its order.

“WINNING,” triple-amputee veteran Brian Kolfage, who founded the group, tweeted.

During a press conference on Thursday, the group’s general counsel, former Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, noted that the group applied for permits last week, was given the green light, and then had to provide additional information early this week:

“You may have heard a statement from someone from the city when that ‘stop work’ permit was issued that they thought the project was not in compliance with city ordinances. That statement by the city was incorrect. The city now agrees there’s no violation of any ordinance. […] And our homework was correct, there is no ordinance that in any way conflicts with this project, and therefore, a variance was not required.”

Kobach noted that the area of the wall’s construction is “one of the hottest smuggling areas in the El Paso sector.”

Watch the press conference below:

“This is a project that was started by the American people who all believed in border security and who believe there is a crisis down here,” Kolfage said.

Kolfage explained that the group’s mission is to “have the largest impact” on the border, adding that they have 10 properties that are ready to go for construction.

“This wall’s not about stopping immigration. This wall’s about legal immigration,” Kolfge later added. “We want people to use the front door and come to this country legally. There’s no reason to use the back door.”
