MAJOR UPDATE on the Gofundme Wall – THIS IS THE INFO YOU HAVE ASKED FOR

Published

on

We wanted to give you a full update on where we stand at the moment. It’s been 30 days since we started this project to build the wall ourselves and we have made incredible progress to begin building the wall that will supplement President Trump’s wall. We are very proud to be working with the President and to have his blessing on our project!

Our team has been identifying zones along the Southern Border that are known to be high-traffic areas for illegal crossings and smuggling operations. We are presently working with US Customs and Border Patrol experts and other US Border Security Service professionals who are highly experienced in these matters. We are beginning extensive due diligence and the commencement of feasibility studies and will be engaging leading experts in a variety of fields necessary to construct our Border Wall. These professionals will continue to provide us with critical guidance on the legal, engineering, contracting, environmental, accounting, maintenance, and real estate issues required to build a Wall along the Southern Border. I’ve been getting a lot of questions asked about the project which is why we setup a website FAQ, please visit it after reading this.

We believe we can build segments of the US Southern Border wall for approximately half of what the Federal Government’s currently estimates. We will build the Wall mile-by-mile in strategic locations based on a variety of factors. We will build as much wall as we can based on feasibility, land use, and funding.

Me and our team have been out to Arizona, New Mexico, California and Texas multiple times meeting with landowners and state/local officials, it’s going great and the communities are supporting us! With that said I’m excited to announce that we have identified a minimum of 7 pieces of land in these border states to begin building on, and I am flying to meet with landowners this week to commence our first big land agreement which will allow us to begin the process to build. IT’S HAPPENING!

This process includes many items such as land surveying, applying for permits for construction, and all site impact studies. Typically, this process does not take too long and when its complete we will then be moving dirt and breaking ground with the first ever section of the ‘People’s Wall’… EXCITING!

We are launching our volunteer database in the next day or two on our website www.WeBuildTheWall.us so please check in on that later. Also we are pleased to announce our chairman of We Build The Wall Inc. as Steve Bannon, yes, Steve Bannon who was the mastermind behind Trump being elected. He’s now on our team and will fast track this project

Making history in this board room. Haven’t been able to release these till now, many meetings with Steve Bannon who is on our team, and he’s been able to bring us major donors who are going to assist us to get this project driven home and breaking ground very very soon. Way before trump gets a penny for his wall. Everyone in this room has the fighting spirit to get this done, and we have more surprises coming. Also, this Friday we have a town hall meeting in Tucson. More to come on that. @nbcnews @foxnews @cnn @abcnews @100percentfedup @realdonaldtrump @donaldjtrumpjr @breitbartfortrump @wearebreitbart @diamondandsilk @dhsgov . . . #buildthewall #borderwall #bordersecurity #webuildthewall #gofundthewall #trump #kag #maga2020

This will go down in history as the people rising up to get the job done when politicians have failed them. We’re going to do this the old fashion way, rolling up our sleeves, getting dirty, and doing work! Showing America the can do attitude that this country needs again.

I’ve learned a lot along this journey, and the one thing these landowners all tell me is that they live in fear 24/7. They also feel neglected by the federal government for failing them for the past 30+ years. Property values have plummeted and crime has skyrocketed in these communities. And this is not acceptable, this is not the country I vowed to protect, this is not how we treat our citizens. It’s time we begin protecting our citizens and standing up to these cartels. Mexico has a nasty cancer, its bad, and its spreading into America. The corruption is already setting in, and that cancer is growing rapidly into the heart of our nation.

You won’t hear this on the Lamestream media:

‘We The People’ will build the wall!

DHS issues environmental waivers for 65 miles of border wall in South Texas

Published

* By

McALLEN, Texas (Border Report) — Environmentalists and local leaders in South Texas were furious after learning Thursday that the Department of Homeland Security has waived environmental regulations in three counties in order to expedite construction of 65 new border wall.

DHS on Thursday announced that it had issued a waiver to hasten new border wall construction in the counties of Hidalgo, Starr and Cameron. The waiver was published in the Federal Registry on Thursday, and “will ensure expeditious construction of approximately 65 miles of new border wall system within U.S. Border Patrol’s (USBP) Rio Grande Valley Sector,” U.S. Customs and Border Protection said in a news release.

“President Trump continues to blatantly misappropriate government funds, ignore the pleas of Texas landowners and seize land like a medieval feudal lord,” U.S. Rep. Vicente Gonzalez, a Democrat whose district includes Hidalgo County, said in a news release.

Scott Nicol, who is on the executive committee of the Lower Rio Grande Valley Sierra Club told Border Report that “waiving laws is a clear admission that Trump’s border wall will violate those laws.”

The waivers will allow construction to begin despite environmental regulations that protect endangered species, and laws pertaining to the Safe Drinking Water Act.

Nicol, who also is co-chairman of the Borderlands committee, added: “There is no reason to waive the Safe Drinking Water Act unless their plans will threaten our drinking water. They are waiving the Endangered Species Act because they know that border walls will push endangered species closer to extinction.”

Jonathan Salinas of the No Border Wall coalition called the waivers “a hit-list,” to South Texas.

“Today’s waivers are but another reminder that in the name of national security all things are possible, including wholesale disregard for the human and environmental rights of border residents. These waivers virtually cover the whole of the Lower Río Grande Valley not yet waived, including wildlife refuge tracts which are intended to protect and preserve that which the government is now intending to destroy,” said Salinas, who also serves on the executive committee of the Lower Rio Grande Valley Sierra Club.

Some areas will be exempt from border wall construction in South Texas, including: Santa Ana National Wildlife Refuge, La Lomita Historical Park, Bentsen-Rio Grande Valley State Park, within or east of the Vista del Mar Ranch tract of the Lower Rio Grande Valley National Wildlife Refuge, or the National Butterfly Center, DHS said. This is because Congress refused to fund border wall construction if those areas were included.

At question is still whether a one-third mile section of Santa Ana National Wildlife Refuge, in Alamo, Texas, will be exempt from construction. This section had been purchased by Santa Ana from private landowners and appears to be on border wall construction plans released by CBP.

This is not the first time the Trump Administration has waived environmental regulations in order to build new border wall miles on the Southwest border. And as the 2020 presidential election nears, President Donald Trump has increasingly boasted on Twitter with regularity about the number of border wall miles already built, under construction and about to begin.

CBP said the waivers were needed to quickly fill in gaps in the existing border wall because the Rio Grande Sector accounts for 40 percent of all migrant apprehensions in the nation, and ranks No. 1 for seizure of cocaine and marijuana on the Southwest border.

Said Rep. Gonzalez: “We do need to secure our border and crack down on criminal activities. But that is done best by engaging with our Mexican and Central American neighbors to address the violence and economic opportunity in their countries and investing in technology and human capital — not building a frivolous border wall.”

The cost for the 65 miles of new border wall in the three counties could total $811 million, CBP has said.

The waivers come just as 300 National Guard troops have arrived in the region to help patrol the existing border wall and new construction areas, U.S. Border Patrol told Border Report. The National Guard troops will relieve U.S. Army soldiers.

Many residents in South Texas are angry by what they call a “militarized” presence. Read a previous Border Report story on the ‘militarization’ of the region.

“We call on the U.S. Congress to repeal this waiver authority which allows the executive branch to legally commit crimes against humanity,” Salinas said.

74 Miles of Border Wall Completed, 158 More Under Construction

Border Patrol officials say communities along the border are safer following the completion of 74 miles of improved border wall systems. Those systems include 30-foot bollard walls, new border-access roads, lighting, and electronic surveillance. Construction on an additional 158 miles is underway with 450 miles scheduled to be completed by the end of 2020.
Construction crews under the direction of U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) issued a report on Friday showing the completion of 74 miles of replacement border wall systems along the southwestern border with Mexico. Officials stated that 158 miles of additional walls are currently under construction and 276 miles are in a “pre-construction phase,” according to information provided to Breitbart News by CBP officials.

The new border wall system in Calexico, California, is the first section of replacement wall to be completed, El Centro Sector Assistant Chief Patrol Agent Joshua C. Devack said in a video presentation on Friday. “Since the border wall system was completed in this area, local business and commerce is thriving and areas once considered dangerous are now secure,” Devack stated. “In addition, overall crime in this area has been significantly reduced thus making our community a safer place to live and work.”

Prior to the new wall systems installed in January 2017, many sections of the border were relatively unsecured. Those areas consisted of landing mat walls that could easily be cut or climbed and other barriers designed only to stop vehicle traffic, Devack reported. The newly completed wall system includes 30-foot high bollard walls, new border-access roads allowing faster response by agents, additional lighting, and electronic surveillance systems, which provide advance warning and faster detection of border-crossing activities.

The new wall systems also provide safety for Border Patrol agents working alongside the wall.

In July, Border Patrol Agent Mike Matzke told Breitbart News in his capacity as president of the National Border Patrol Council’s Local 2554 in El Centro, California, “We’ve had people throw Molotov cocktails over the old landing mat fence and it was dangerous because we couldn’t see through it like we can with Trump’s new border barrier. Here in El Centro, we have the highest stretch of border wall on the entire Southwest border. Trump’s new wall section is 30-feet high,” Matzke said.

“A couple-mile stretch of Trump’s wall might not seem like a lot to some people, but it sure makes all the difference in the world to us,” Matzke said about the new wall in El Centro. “We are safer and our objectives are much easier to meet.”

Acting CBP Commissioner Mark Morgan tweeted, “The frontline men and women of @CBP tell me walls work and help them do their job. That matters. And while not everyone who crosses the border is bad, this wall is important to protect USBP agents and to stop drugs and criminals from entering your communities.”

CBP spent approximately $292 million to construct 40 miles of new border wall systems in the San Diego, El Centro, and El Paso Sectors, officials stated. These walls replaced “dilapidated and outdated designs in high priority locations.” CBP funded an additional $49 million in the Rio Grande Valley Sector to build 35 border wall gates to close gaps in the existing wall systems. The gates are currently under construction, officials reported.

CBP officials report approximately 509 miles of new border wall systems are identified for construction projects. These projects will be funded by a combination of Department of Homeland Security and Department of Defense funding and proceeds from the Treasury Forfeiture Fund. Those plans include approximately 141 miles of new primary walls, 24 miles of new primary levee walls, 68 miles of replacement primary walls for dilapidated designs, 205 miles for primary walls replacing existing vehicle barriers, 14 miles of secondary walls in place of dilapidated designs, and 57 miles of new secondary walls.

“Every new mile of new border wall system—including new barrier, technology, lighting, and roads—delivers new capability that will help my men and women immensely in their efforts to safely and effectively secure the border,” U.S. Border Patrol Chief Carla Provost said in a written statement.
