A group of conservatives that raised money for a privately produced border wall is heading to Texas to begin construction.
The group headed by Air Force veteran and triple amputee Brian Kolfage has raised over $20 million for their private border wall, a project that even won the appreciation of President Donald Trump, they say.
Kolfage, who organized a nonprofit corporation called WeBuildtheWall Inc. to begin erecting private segments of the border wall, says he is ready to begin looking into actual construction of the wall now that they have so many millions pledged to the project.
Indeed, group spokesman Dustin Stockton says that they are planning on building new wall sections “in months not years.”
“We talked to several people who weren’t interested in having a wall five or six years ago who have since changed their mind based on what they’re seeing happening on their land,” Stockton recently told the Associated Press.
Kolfage said the group is going full speed ahead on building a wall.
According to Breitbart News:
Kolfage told Breitbart News in an exclusive phone interview on Thursday, “We’re moving forward with the wall. I’ve got some land owners who are ready to rock and roll, and want us to start slapping up some wall.”
“We should be able to break ground in the next couple of months, we hope, according to our experts,” he said.
Kolfage also said his group’s construction committee will build their segments of the wall according to the government’s specifications.
He also added that once their plans are devised, the group will be hiring local companies to fulfill the orders.
“We’ll be employing American companies to do the whole thing,” Kolfage told Breitbart.
“We’re just going completely fast and furious on this, and busting our butts because that’s what we need to do, and I think that government should be doing the exact same thing,” Kolfage said of the group’s efforts
