A few days back federal judge, Haywood Gilliam, blocked Trump’s wall-building efforts by blocking certain sections.

But, remember that GoFundMe project? 

Well, on private property (owned by American Eagle Brick Company) near El Paso the project built a mile long wall in three days. The project also intends to sell the wall to the government for $1.

Brain Kolfage, the founder of the GoFundMe, aimed at this location first due to the mountains. Government officials stated the mountains were a natural barrier that would stop migrants.

But it hasn’t stopped anything. That’s why we decided to build here first.

Kolfage also stated his wall was superior to the United States government’s “wall.” 

The steel portions of the wall are 25 feet tall, but we built the base up with stone in some areas, so it can be roughly 30-40 feet tall, as it goes up the mountain. It’s made of all-weather steel which could last for centuries. It costs more up front but the overall cost of not having to be replaced in the near future is better in the long run. We also opted for a technology package that includes a fiber optic sensor in the ground that can detect digging and even people touching the wall. There will also be cameras mounted on the wall. We’re paving a road for border control with outlook centers at the top of the mountain as well.

Currently, progress has stopped. Sunland Park, New Mexico, ordered a cease and desist on Tuesday. The town ruled the project lacked the need permits. Mayor Javier Perea said the landowner’s submitted application was incomplete.

Kolfate has taken to social media on the matter.
