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.
This article was updated with additional reporting regarding the GoFundMe campaign to fund the southern border wall.
Meanwhile in Mexico…9 People Killed At a Wake in the State of Guanajuato
America must bolster its border security.
The Independent reported that gunmen killed nine people at a wake in the central Mexican state of Guanajuato on January 7, 2020.
Law enforcement officials in the city of Celaya revealed in a statement that gunmen showed up late that night and began firing on a group of people. The event was held in an impoverished neighborhood where residents mourned a young man who fell to gun fire a few days prior.
According to David Saucedo, a security analyst based in Guanajuato, the Jalisco New Generation Cartel carried out the attack against the deceased man’s family. The gunmen believed that the family was connected to the competing Santa Rosa de Lima gang, although many may not have connections with the gang.
“At that wake, a lot of innocent people died,” Saucedo observed.
Guanajuato is a flashpoint for a violent proxy war between major drug cartels. Since 2017, the Santa Rosa de Lima gang has fended off the fast-rising Jalisco cartel in a bloody turf war. Although law enforcement arrested the leader of the Santa Rosa de Lima gang back in August, the violence has not gone away According to Saucedo, the Sinaloa cartel has intervened in this struggle to keep the Jalisco cartel from securing a foothold in Guanajuato. They’ve sent weapons, financial aid, and gunmen to prop up Santa Rosa de Lima and other local gangs.
With so much drama taking place stateside, we often forget that Mexico is a failed state. Similarly, the outrage stemming from the Wuhan virus pandemic largely overshadowed issues of border security and immigration. However, this should not lessen the importance of the immigration issue.
As Mexico continues tearing itself apart, America must bolster its border security. Unfortunately, the incoming President Joe Biden is not up to task and will prioritize weak border enforcement and a potential amnesty for illegal aliens. America will suffer greatly as a result.
