An unelected mayor of a New Mexico town has issued a cease-desist-order to the “We Build the Wall” group, which is using crowdfunded cash to build a section of border wall on private land.
Javier Perea, the mayor of City of Sunland Park, said the group was in violation of a city ordinance stating that any fencing can only be only be six feet high, according to CBS4. The group reportedly applied for a permit to build a taller fence, but the Mayor’s office said it was incomplete.
Perea was appointed mayor in 2012, and has held office ever since. He is described as “liberal” by the Tennessee Star.
“We Build the Wall” released a statement in response to the order:
”We Build The Wall has done everything they need to do to be in compliance with all regulations. We’ve had members from Sunland Park city government out to inspect the site and to witness the first concrete pour. We believe this is a last ditch effort to intimidate us from completing this historic project by a local government with a long history of corruption problems.”
Former Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach is the general counsel for “We Build the Wall,” which has obtained non-profit status.
He said that the section of wall is 80 percent complete, but is currently halted while they figure out how to proceed with the town, according to The Washington Times.
“He sounded confident that the project will be completed, saying city inspectors had been out to the site during construction on Friday, and officials had given them the go-ahead to build, and to pay the permit fee later, when the person who sets the rate returns from time off,” the report said.
Both sides are reportedly ready to take the issue to the local courts, unless it is resolved.

Arrests at U.S Southern Border Surged 40% in Month of June
They’re infiltrating the borders again.
Arrest of illegal aliens at the U.S-Mexico border surged by 40% in the month of June, suggesting that human traffickers and border crossers are seeking to infiltrate the borders of the United States once again after a lull during the coronavirus pandemic.
Acting Customs and Border Patrol Chief Mark Morgan called the increase in border crossings concerning. He described a danger to public health from the free movement of aliens across the southern border, citing the rise in crossings as a need for a border wall. “It is imperative that we continue to build the border wall system and enforce CDC policies aimed at protecting the health of Americans.”
Border arrests during the coronavirus pandemic had been the lowest in number in at least a decade, as the pandemic in the United States and Mexico largely placed the illegal movements of people at a halt. The Department of Homeland Security has also implemented special ‘expulsion’ procedures to quickly return illegal aliens to their countries of origin without involving the byzantine and slow-moving immigration court system, which migrants often exploit with dubious claims of persecution in their home countries to claim asylum.
Seizures of hard drugs such as cocaine and fentanyl coming across the border have also increased by a significant percentage, indicating that international drug smuggling organizations are back in business after halting due to coronavirus.
State of emergency ‘expulsion’ powers afforded to CBP allows the agency to return most illegal aliens across the border within two hours.
