A United States Congressman has introduced legislation that would allow patriots to crowdfund the U.S.-Mexico border wall through government bonds, as a GoFundMe campaign reveals Americans are more than willing to financially support the project.
U.S. Representative Steven Palazzo introduced legislation this week that would allow Americans to purchase revenue bonds to fund the southern border wall, explaining that Americans voted for increased border security in November of 2016, and are tired the Democrats’ “inaction” on the issue.
“During World War II, 85 million Americans purchased $185 billion in war bonds and financially supported our troops while they were defending our country, ” said Palazzo when revealing the bill, “This legislation would allow for the patriots of today’s era to help support American security in the same way as previous generations.”
“The American people are fed up with the political games,” Palazzo explained, saying that the bill “allows new alternatives for our citizens to support their values and defend our homeland.”
In addition to directing the Treasury Department to issue government savings bonds, referred to as “Border Bonds,” thereby allowing Americans to directly fund the border wall, the bill would set aside this revenue in a “Border Bonds Trust Fund” to be used exclusively on the southern border wall.
The legislation comes as Americans have expressed immense willingness to directly fund the border wall on the crowdfunding website GoFundMe.
A man who set up a GoFundMe to build a wall at the Southern United States border has raised more than $215,000 in one day.
The page is called “We the People Will Build the Wall.”
Well into its second day on GoFundMe, the campaign has raised over $1 million to fund the southern border wall.
The GoFundMe for the wall at the Southern border of the United States has just surpassed $1 million of it $1 billion goal after being online for less than two days.
The total, which is increasing by the minute, was just over $1,025,000 at the time of publication of this article.

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.
