TENNESSEE STAR: The group We Build the Wall announced Monday it has completed construction of a large section of wall spanning between a half-mile and a mile along an open area of the Southern border previously believed to be unbuildable.
According to a story by The Washington Times, the wall section is along the southern border in New Mexico, and the organization says that is a first in the history of the border.
The wall is made of 18-foot steel bollard like what the Border Patrol uses, the Times said.
Just late last week, a federal judge ordered a halt to part of President Donald Trump’s emergency declaration and shifting of money within the Pentagon to make up for Congress’s refusal to fund the wall, the Timessaid.
The new section closes a gap that was between the end of the El Paso, Texas border wall and Mount Cristo Rey, across from the City of Juarez, The Gateway Pundit said.
“The gap is a half mile wide corridor and it’s literally a parking lot on the Mexican side and then you walk five steps and you are in the parking lot on the American side. There’s no barbed wire. There’s not ANY barrier. You just walk from one parking lot to the other.”
In the past, groups over a hundred in size on a typical evening would often come through this particular corridor. And while the border patrol is dealing with all the people down at the bottom of the gap in the flat area the cartels would be sending drugs up on the side of the mountain with no border control interference at all.
The new section of wall is on private property where the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers previously said it would not be possible to build – a belief Kolfage and his team took as a challenge along with builder Tommy Fisher, owner of Fisher Sand and Gravel (pictured with Kris Kobach, left).
Kolfage said his group will sell the wall to the federal government for $1. His cost was between $6 million to $8 million.
Kolfage also tweeted video of the wall’s construction: “The people’s wall is unveiled! The first segment is nearly complete!! DONATE NOW to help fund more walls! http://www.gofundme.com/thetrumpwall ”.
The Customs and Border Protection (CBP) has talked about the construction of a new wall at the border, Breitbart said last week, adding that 38 miles as of March 21 have been built.
In a statement provided to Breitbart News two months ago, a CBP spokesperson said the 38 miles of newly constructed wall system “provides new capability by replacing ineffective or dilapidated infrastructure, such as Normandy-style barriers designed only to stop vehicles, not people on foot.”
The majority of the border has remained open as the Department of Homeland Security replaces existing fencing rather than expanding barriers.

Supreme Court Turns Away Environmentalists Trying To Stop Border Wall Construction
Another victory for national security & the border wall. This will help us as we continue the construction of our next projects if environmentalists come after us as they did at Project 2.
“The Supreme Court on Monday declined to hear an appeal from a coalition of environmental groups that pushed back against the Trump administration’s construction of the wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.
The groups, led by the Center for Biological Diversity, challenged a 1996 law giving the president authority to fight illegal immigration and border crossings, and limiting some legal challenges.
The coalition claimed that the Trump administration did not conduct sufficient environmental impact studies for the construction and that endangered species like the jaguar and Mexican wolf would be adversely affected by the barrier.
First, We Build The Wall, Inc was challenged on building our second border wall due to the claim that it would impact butterflies. Now, this. Perhaps we should just let the jaguars live along the border wall as a second layer of security?https://t.co/I6woZ1PSUV#BorderWall #KAG

They had asserted in their case that the law’s allowance for the secretary of Homeland Security to waive any laws necessary to allow the quick construction of border fencing violates the Constitution’s separation of powers. The D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals had dismissed the case, citing a prior case from 2007 with “a nearly identical context.”
“This Court finds that precedent persuasive, and it compels the conclusion that Plaintiffs’ complaint fails to state plausible constitutional claims as a matter of law,” the Circuit Court’s ruling said.”
Meanwhile they’re funding frivolous lawsuits against @WeBuildtheWall bahahaha keep donating to them, it goes to fund their legal bills!! #karma @DonaldJTrumpJr @mamendoza480 @cbs4rgv @AP @FogCityMidge @nababuterfly @NatButterflies https://t.co/bdvJ4rDjc9
