Fundraising for a Border Wall

Fundraising for a Border Wall


>>>FOLLOWING PRESIDENT TRUMP’S EMERGENCY DECLARATION AT THE BORDER IS CURRENTLY UNCLEAR. CURRENTLY MORE THAN A DOZEN STATES PLAN TO CHALLENGE IT IN COURT. EARLIER THIS MONTH A GROUP TRYING TO FUNDRAISE FOR A WALL ON PRIVATE LAND MADE IT TO SOUTHERN ARIZONA.>>I’M A CITIZEN. I’M NOTHING MORE THAN A CITIZEN OF THE UNITED STATES. I FEEL DEEPLY INVESTED IN THIS COUNTRY.>>THE “WE BUILD THE WALL” ORGANIZE HELD A TOWN HALL HOSTED BY THE QUAIL CREEK REPUBLICANS, AFTER A GO FUND ME CAMPAIGN FAILED TO RAISE A BILLION FOR ITS CAUSE IN TIME, THE GROUP BECAME A NONPROFIT TO CONTINUE COLLECTING DONATIONS. IMMEDIATELY AFTER THE TOWN HALL, WE SPOKE TO THE FOUNDER BRIAN COALFAGE ABOUT WHY HE IS TAKING ON THE INITIATIVE.>>I WAS FED UP AND I DIDN’T THINK IT WOULD EVOLVE THAT FIRST AND I WAS FED UP THE WAY WE WERE GOING WITH THE GOVERNMENT AND THE WAY THE POLITICIANS WERE HANDLING AND I THOUGHT MAYBE I COULD HAVE A CHANCE TO INFLUENCE SOMETHING AND HAVE AN IMPACT, AND I GUESS IT WAS JUST REALLY GOOD TIMING. AND IT TOOK OFF.>>IT MAY SEEM LIKE A LOFTY GOAL, $1 BILLION, BUT A FEW MONTHS IN, YOU WERE AT, WHAT, THAT MADE YOU THINK, YOU KNOW, WHAT, THIS IS DOABLE. THIS IS MANAGEABLE.>>YEAH, I THINK, YOU KNOW, WE RAISED $18 MILLION BEFORE CHRISTMAS IN ONE WEEK. THAT SHOWS YOU THE LEVEL OF FUNDRAISING THAT WE CAN ACHIEVE. IT SLOWED DOWN A LITTLE BIT. MOW WE HAVE PRIVATE DONATIONS, AND WE’RE SET UP AS A CORPORATION, A NONPROFIT, AND YEAH, I THINK ONCE WE START, YOU KNOW, SHOWING PEOPLE THAT WE ARE SERIOUS, AND WE’RE GOING TO BREAK GROUND, AND ACTUALLY START BUILDING, IT IS GOING TO RAMP RIGHT BACK UP AGAIN.>>WHAT DOES THE WALL LOOK LIKE? WHERE DOES IT GO? WHO BUILD IT? GIVE US SOME IDEA WHAT YOU HOPE COMES OUT OF THIS.>>THE WALL WILL PRETTY MUCH LOOK LIKE WHAT PRESIDENT TRUMP IS BUILDING NOW. WE MIGHT HAVE LITTLE MODIFICATIONS TO MAKE IT BETTER, TO MAKE IT MORE EFFICIENT AND COST EFFICIENT. YOU KNOW, WE’RE JUST, WE ARE GOING TO BE THE PEOPLE WITH THE MONEY. WE WILL HIRE OUT CONTRACTORS TO GO ON THESE PRIVATE PROPERTIES, ON THE PRIVATE PROPERTY AND BUILD IT. AND WE’LL HANDLE ALL OF THE LOGISTICS OF IT FOR THE PROPERTY OWNER. AND IT IS GOING TO BE VERY SIMPLE. IT IS LIKE THAT PROPERTY OWNER, JUST WANTING TO BUILD A FENCE.>>FOR THE PEOPLE WHO ARE NOT FAMILIAR WITH YOUR STORY, WHAT MADE YOU QUALIFIED TO KIND OF LEAD THIS CHARGE?>>I DON’T THINK IT TAKES ANYONE REALLY QUALIFIED TO LEAD THE CHARGE. WHAT MAKES US AS A UNIT ABLE TO DO THIS IS OUR TEAM. WE’RE A TEAM OF PEOPLE. WE HAVE THE LEADING EXPERTS IN ALL DIFFERENT CAREER FIELDS. ON OUR TEAM. I’M THE FACE OF THIS THING. AND I THINK PEOPLE ARE GRAVITATED TOWARD ME AS THE FACE OF IT BECAUSE MAYBE, BECAUSE I LOST, I’M OUT THERE DOING THIS AND MAYBE THEY FEEL IT IS IMPORTANT BECAUSE OF WHAT I’VE GIVEN. THAT IS JUST MY ASPECT. AND THEN WE HAVE PEOPLE LIKE CHRIS COBACK, HE IS AN EXPERT IN BORDER SECURITY IMMIGRATION. WE HAVE PEOPLE LIKE ERIC TRENT, STEVE BANNON, THE POLITICAL PEOPLE, AND THEY’RE ALSO EXPERTS IN THEIR FIELD. WE HAVE CONSTRUCTION GUYS. JOHN MORAN. ONE OF THE BIGGEST CONSTRUCTION PROJECTS IN THE UNITED STATES. SO I THINK AS A TEAM, AS A UNIT, WE ARE THE MOST CAPABLE, PROBABLY ONE OF THE MOST CAPABLE IN THE UNITED STATES RIGHT NOW TO TAKE ON THIS PROJECT AND BUILD A WALL.>>HOW ARE YOU MEASURING SUCCESS?>>WELL, I THINK WHEN WE FIRST BREAK GROUND AND START MOVING DIRT, THAT’S GOING TO BE THE FIRST CHECK MARK, WE’RE GETTING IT DONE. AND ONCE WE GET THAT FIRST MILE UP, ANOTHER CHECK MARK. WE’RE PROTECTING THAT COMMUNITY. AND START DOING MORE MILES AND MORE MILES AND MORE MILES AND START FUNDRAISING, AND CONTINUE IN THIS, AND GETTING THE COMMUNITY INVOLVED, AND GETTING THEM, YOU KNOW, THIS IS THEIR WALL, IT IS THE PEOPLE’S WALL, AND HAVES ALL, DOING ALL OF THESE THINGS, AND DOING THESE MILESTONES, THAT’S WHAT SUCCESS WILL BE MEASURED OFF OF. WE WILL BE SAVING LIVES. PROTECTING COMMUNITIES. BRICKING UP PROPERTY VALUES ALONG THE BORDER AND THAT’S THE SUCCESS OF THIS, SAVING LIVES.>>LET’S GET THIS WALL BUILT.

    IF THE GOV'T CANNOT ACCEPT YOUR MONEY , AND IS BEING GRANTED ENOIGH FUNDS TO BUILD THIS THEMSELVES , WHERE IS YOUR MONEY GOING ?

    PLEASE RESPOND ?

  • Wall isn’t getting built.
    Times being wasted.
    Ever heard the saying “Time costs money?”
    Well as long as this project drags on the more costly it will get.

  • Trump supporters are stupid #MAGAmorons

    What did Kolfage do with the money? Private citizens cannot build on the border. Kolfage has made no arrangements to give the money to Homeland Security

    Kolfage bought a yacht with your wall money
