The private sector effort to build a wall on the southern border of the United States, We Build The Wall, has announced a major victory after they received permission to lock and shut its gate from the federal government, contradicting reports from media outlets that claimed the gate was locked open after being built without a permit.
We Build The Wall, the viral campaign to privately fund the border wall that raised over $20 million via GoFundMe, is blasting fake news and thanking the federal government for its cooperation in the private construction effort to build a wall on the southern border.
Multiple media outlets reported earlier this week that the border wall was ordered chained open by the federal government because We Build The Wall did not have a permit for its construction. The federal agency Daily Caller claimed ordered this released its own statement revealing that the version of the story Kolfage says was run by The Daily Caller, Daily Beast, and Buzzfeed was only partially correct, as the gate is chained and locked shut at night and the agency is working with We Build The Wall on its permit request.
We Build The Wall also explained that the wall has armed guards securing the area during the day. In short, there is no problem with the privately funded and constructed border wall.
The International Boundary and Water Commission United States Section revealed that the gate was temporarily opened for federal personnel to travel through it, and then locked again at the conclusion of the work. Its statement notes that it “will lock the privately-owned gate on federal property at night effective immediately due to security concerns,” and that their officials “removed the private lock, opened the gate, and locked the gate open pending further discussions with We Build the Wall.”
Kolfage seems to say that Daily Caller and the other media outlets reported on a very brief period in which the gate was open and passed it off as a permanent situation.
We Build The Wall also released a video with one of the foreman from the project offering more insight.
“We have to talk about the fake news. The gate is closed and locked, it is open during the day and locked open with security personnel on project,” said the foreman. “The gate is closed by the IBWC, they just locked it at 7 o’clock this evening, so don’t listen to the fake news. It’s a bunch of lies.”

Brian Kolfage, the triple amputee veteran who started the We Build The Wall project, also blasted The Daily Caller, Buzzfeed, and The Daily Beast for producing what he considers fake news about the organization, saying he is “really surprised” about Daily Caller, and will “stop reading them until they fire Andrew Kerr.”

The media has been skeptical of the We Build The Wall project since its inception, and Big League Politics was happy to report that the organization defied the swamp’s expectations with massive success in its border wall construction.
On Monday, We Build the Wall, a nonprofit that raised money via crowdfund to build a border wall on private land, released a video showing at least a half mile of wall it built in New Mexico with the money it raised, proving the left wing, fake news media detractors wrong.
“Shocker! The GoFundMe Campaign to Build the Wall Is a Bust,” was the headline of a May 10 piece by Will Sommer in The Daily Beast.
Sommer’s piece implied that the entire project, led by triple amputee veteran Brian Kolfage, was a scam designed to bilk money from unsuspecting donors.
The Daily Beast did not reply to Big League Politics’ request for comment for the above story.
Arizona Border Patrol Officer Stabbed Multiple Times, Shoots and Kills Criminal Alien
A Border Patrol officer patrolling the US-Mexico border shot and killed a man who stabbed him multiple times in Southern Arizona on Monday night.
CBP officials reported that the unnamed agent was patrolling near the transnational city of Nogales, Arizona, when he encountered a group of individuals he suspected to be aliens entering the country illegally. One man accompanying them group attacked the agent when he sought to apprehend the aliens, stabbing him multiple times.
The CBP agent went on to fatally shoot the alien, who may have been a smuggler moving a group of illegal migrants across the border. Deputies of the Santa Cruz Sheriff’s Office were called to provide backup, and the Border Patrol agent that was stabbed had to be airlifted to a Tucson hospital early on Tuesday morning. Fortunately, he was released from the hospital later the same day.
Cartel-affiliated criminal smugglers have increasingly sought to infiltrate the United States in Arizona, hoping to avoid a buffed border patrol presence in Texas and new wall construction in the most trafficked areas of the border.
Preliminary reports indicate that the Border Patrol agent may have been alone when he encountered the smuggler’s group of criminal aliens, a hazard that has resulted in violent attacks on Border Patrol agents by cartel-affiliated criminals before.
The FBI is reportedly investigating the incident. It’s unclear if the group of aliens encountered by the agent have been expelled under special coronavirus immigration regulations, transferred into the custody of immigration detention, or simply allowed to proceed into the country.
