Group of US Citizens Have $20 Million to Start Building a Wall in Texas

February 01, 2019 - 5:11 pm

What started as a "GoFundMe" campaign has grown into a foundation with plans to build a wall along the US-Mexico border on its own.

The movement was started by retired Air Force Veteran Brian Kolfage. The triple-amputee's campaign, "We The People Will Build the Wall," has already raised more than $20M though nearly 350,000 donations.

The Associate Press reports that questions remain whether a border wall could be built by a private organization.
