HUGE Win for ‘We Build The Wall’ Company, Starts Building Wall Where It’s Never Been Before
You may recall the man who started a Go Fund Me page in an effort to help raise money to help build a border wall since the Democrats were giving the President such a hard time with allocating funds for it.
Brian Kolfage, who is a triple amputee veteran is the one behind the Go Fund Me, which has now turned into a big project in which they’ve hired a construction company to build the wall.
The organization, “We Build The Wall” has raised over $25 million to assist in building the wall.
Recently, they ran into an issue where they were forced to stop construction while the International Boundary and Water Commission challenged the building of a particular section of the wall which was located on private land.
After months in court, a federal judge cleared way for the contracted construction company, Fisher Industries, to continue with the construction which consists of an 18 foot tall wall that stretches across the Rio Grande for 3 miles in Mission, Texas.
Construction of the wall was initially stopped due to concerns over a nearby butterfly sanctuary.
According to The Guardian,
A judge in South Texas has ordered a group of supporters of Donald Trump, some with rightwing ties, not to build their controversial planned private border wall on a section of land near the Rio Grande.
State district Judge Keno Vasquez on Tuesday issued a temporary restraining order against a group called We Build the Wall, which raised $25m through crowdfunding and other means after promising to build its own private barrier on parts of the border between the US and Texas.
Vasquez set a 17 December hearing for We Build the Wall and its founder, military veteran Brian Kolfage, to appear in court in the south-eastern Texas city of Edinburg, near McAllen on the border.
The judge said the project risked causing “imminent and irreparable harm” to the area.
The Department of Justice on Dec. 5 filed a lawsuit on behalf of IBCW against Fisher Industries, the construction company WBW is contracting to assemble the wall, demanding the group to discontinue building the barrier.
