GoFundMe Border Wall Ordered to Stop Building Because They Didn’t Have the Right Paperwork

The $20 million crowdfunded project to do what Trump hasn’t done hit, well, a wall.

SUNLAND PARK, New Mexico—We Build the Wall, a privately funded effort to build a barrier along the U.S.-Mexico border, was told to stop building on Tuesday.

The cease-and-desist order represents a new obstacle for the group and its founder, triple-amputee veteran Brian Kolfage. Kolfage’s crowdfunding effort became a cause célèbre on the right last December, when he rapidly raised $20 million on GoFundMe for the wall. So far they have built less than a half-mile of fence on the border.


Sunland Park Mayor Javier Perea said at a press conference the city issued a cease-and-desist order, saying it is in violation of city ordinances. George Cudahy, whose company owns the land where the wall is being built, submitted an application for a building permit last week. Sunland Park officials declared the application incomplete, Perea said, because it lacked a site plan development and included contradictory information around the construction.

2. Guessing these kooks think building permits are hippie liberal government intrusion into their lives

These types often have such notions.

3. Aw shucks...Kolfage probably wants to see a couple hundred feet of wall go up........

And then he'll claim he needs a LearJet to inspect it from the air.

6. Part of me hopes

They get to build $20 million dollars worth of their wall so they can see how very little it buys.

7. Let's remember two fairly recent examples of these people and paperwork- they're not good at it

When the Teabaggers got started and wanted to stage “protests” the Koch brothers (Crossroads?) both assisted with funding AND had offices of people to help with local paperwork etc.

After the hoax dust of the “IRS scandal” we found out that at least half (of just the organizations flagged by the BOLO list) didn’t properly complete the required forms in some cases literally just stopping from look like tedium or frustration.

Why am I not surprised?
