Bill Would Allow Crowdfunded Border Wall Construction

(Gateway Pundit) Thanks to $25 million in contributions from ordinary American citizens, the non-profit organization WeBuildTheWall Inc. is in the midst of constructing a wall along the crime-ridden southern border. But the crowdfunded group is facing bureaucratic hurdles each step of the way.

Now House Republicans are intervening to get the job done.

Intent on eliminating gridlock over border wall construction, more than a dozen GOP lawmakers in Arizona introduced a legislation Thursday that would allow private organizations to build physical security barriers in the state without acquiring construction permits.

The bill, HB 2084, will create a “presumption of permission to build the international boundary wall on state land,”  Rep. Warren Peterson (R-AZ) said in a statement Friday.

The measure comes after a pledge the Arizona lawmaker made in June to assist WeBuildTheWall with securing the border.

After congressional Democrats’ defied Trump’s request to appropriate funding for a border wall in 2018, triple amputee veteran Brian Kolfage created a GoFundMe, calling on the American public to step to the plate and fund the wall themselves. Within days, the American people donated nearly $25 million of private donations to assure the construction of the wall would become a reality.

Support from the GOP lawmakers is crucial to winning the war to secure the border from criminals and potential national security threats, Kolfage told the Gateway Pundit Friday.

“Now the state of Arizona as stepped up to allow us to gift this vital tool for national security to the citizens of Arizona. We are proud to be able to work with border patrol and Arizona to make this a reality. Our wall has been proven 100 percent effective,” he said.

With the help of concerned patriots, WeBuildTheWall could construct a wall along the entire 2000-mile border, Kolfage continued, noting, “If every Trump supporter donates $80, then the nonprofit could build a wall on the entire 2000-mile border. We’ve proven now that we can build wall. Donations can be made by calling (888) 299-WALL.”
