HomeNews WireFederal Judge Delivers HUGE Win for ‘We Build The Wall’ Company, Starts Building Wall Where It's Never Been Before Editor January 22, 2020 Brian Kolfage made national news when he started the whole GoFundMe page in order to raise the money himself to help build the border wall in order to combat illegal immigration. Kolfage, a triple amputee veteran is the one behind the Go Fund Me. He was sick and tired of seeing the Democrats stand in the way of the President's work to try and protect our country. That's why he started what is now known as "We Build The Wall" and has raised over $25 million to help with the construction of the wall. Toward the end of 2019, they ran into a problem with construction and were forced to stop building while the International Boundary and Water Commission challenged the spot that they were building on, which was private land. After spending months in court fighting against the IBWC, a federal judge gave the approval for the contracted construction company, Fisher Industries, to continue with construction. This project consisted of an 18-foot tall wall that reached across the Rio Grande for 3 miles. 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.
