Watch for Private Border Wall – As Congress and Courts Fail America

border wall

The old English adage rings in my ears. “You cannot bolt a door with a boiled carrot.”  In the same way, you cannot protect a national border, without a credible deterrent – that is, a wall.  As federal and state leaders quarrel, joust and fret, Americans are stepping in to build it. 

No kidding, waiting, or wasting more time.  In each of the past two months, more than 100,000 illegal entrants have crossed into the United States.  Those are near record numbers.  Whatever you think about how America should manage, assimilate, return, reject or otherwise hear and resolve cases of those already in the country, borders are not borders if left unenforced. 

The unalterable reality – that our southern border is not only penetrable, but is being persistently penetrated, that dotted lines on maps do not actual borders make – has moved a group of Americans to act. 

As reported this weekend, a private organization entitled “We Build the Wall” has begun to do just that.  They are not waiting for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) or a fractured, strangely disoriented, inexplicably anti-wall Democratic Caucus to solve their problem.  They are solving it. 

President Trump laid out the case – cogently and with numbers – for the wall, and for understanding that 100,000 illegal entrants per month is literally swamping our ability to humanely process, never mind house, feed, absorb, integrate and assimilate these illegal aliens, many of whom are young, virtually all of whom are impoverished, some sick, others tied to drug and human trafficking gangs.

Enter the American can-do spirit, and action in the face of intentional Democratic inaction.  The civilian “We Build the Wall” organization is focused, for now, on the need for a high-integrity border wall along the so-called El Paso sector of the border.  The reason for starting there is no mystery; drug and human smugglers game the open border in this sector.

Of necessity, the real wall is coming to life on private land.  The need for protection is objective, above dispute by any political party in this sector, and presents both immediate and longer-term public safety and health concerns. 

Again, on the numbers, just under 1,000 illegal entrants are apprehended a day in this sector, according to the Department of Homeland Security’s Customs and Border Patrol.  How many penetrate the sector – entering America – un-apprehended is anyone’s guess.  

Similarly, while we catch a percentage of drug traffickers, most experts assess that far more drugs enter the United States than are apprehended.  The southwest border is a prime corridor for trafficking the poisons into our society. 

And if anyone still doubts the flood of foreign drugs into the United States, just consult local law enforcement anywhere in the country, or those triaging overdoses, drugged driving accidents, and drug-related crime victims in America’s emergency rooms.  The ER doctors will tell you what no one wants to hear – the crisis is upon us. 

At the southern border, can-do now appears to be the phrase of the day, if only on private land.   And this example of can-do is especially interesting.   That border sector – and the starting point for this private wall – was described by the Army Corp of Engineers as unbuildable, too rugged to allow for success.

Interestingly, as we go from Memorial Day to celebration success against impossible odds on D-Day, June 6, 1944, one is put in mind of the way we Americans think.  We often delay action we could have taken earlier, but once we start – we are hard to stop. 

The border is becoming a genuine crisis, one that all Americans want solved – regardless of what their national leaders seem willing to finance, with their tax dollars.  Older Americans have had enough and want to protect a country for which many went to war.   So, they appear to be tackling protection of a sector that officials say is “too rugged” to protect.  We shall see.

Meantime never count the average American out, or his or her unified town, or any peaceful and patriotic collection of can-do American doers and builders – intent on defending their rights, land and homes. 

In this way, whether building the wall on private land goes beyond the El Paso sector or not, whether the private wall goes up slow or fast, it offers a powerful, poignant, proscriptive and historic example to the United States Congress.  It also sends a strong signal to the federal courts, which seem to think blocking money for the President’s signature priority – the wall – is good for them.  Nothing could be further from the truth.  Why?  Because “you cannot bolt a door with a boiled carrot.”

The Democrats have to know that blocking the wall, not addressing the illegal alien issue will cost them the election. We the “silent” minority need to voice our objection to their obstructionist policies and votes by letters and emails directed at those who put American Citizens second.

Thank God! I had been wondering if private citizens could contribute to building the wall!

How and where do private citizens contribute to the wall in good faith?

If our elective representatives can not get their act together regarding a bipartisan move to protect our sovereign borders then let Americans privately fund the building of the wall. Lets show our “progressive” congress who are hampering the building of the wall, it is we the people who rule. Yes, I agree we need to revamp, streamline the existing immigration policies, laws but first we need a wall. I liken the existing border wall coupled with the unenforced immigration laws to that of a sinking ship. Democrats want to polish the rails and mop the deck while Republicans want to more importantly stop up the flow of water to keep the ship afloat. Shinning, clean boats don’t look good at the bottom of the sea; lets address the real issue which is unhampered flow of immigrants which have not been properly screened to come into this nation. We must always keep American interest and safety first.

We should build a wall and our democrat socialist Party should be relocated south of the wall , maybe in Antartica

Like many others we have contributed to Build the Wall and are glad to see work has already been done. The Democrats should be shamed into supporting the administration’s efforts to get our southern border protected.
Get the border closed and change our immigration policy to a merit system: allow those with skills we need to come into the USA. Then welcome them with open arms and get them to work.

I have already donated three small amounts to this cause. Strangely, several (d) politicians in the effected areas are trying to block this private construction! Illegal votes mean more to them than the safety of their constituents! Vote in 2020!

I GIVE MY HEARTFELT THANKS TO THESE PEOPLE WHO ARE TAKING THIS UPON THEMSELVES. WE ARE TRULY DESPERATE FOR THE BORDER WALL. EYERYONE KNOWS THIS , HOWEVER THE DEMOCRATS DO NOT WANT ADMIT THIS, AND THEY WILL NOT WORK WITH PRESIDENT TRUMP IN GETTING THE BORDER WALL BUILT. THIS COULD BE SO SIMPLE, IF IWERE NOT FOR THE EVIL AND WICKED, WHO DO NOT CARE ONE HOOT FOR OUR SAFETY. THEY ONLY CARE ABOUT THEMSELVES AND THEY CAN AFFORD THEIR OWN PERSONAL SECURITY, WITH OUR MONEY. I KNOW YA’LL LOVE AMERICA AS MUCH AS I DO AND IT BREAKS MY HEART TO KNOW THE DEMOCRATS ARE PUTTING THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE IN DANGER BY ALLOWING THIS, NOT EVEN TO SPEAK OF ALL OF OUR KIDS LIVES BEING IN DANGER. THANK YOU WITH ALL MY HEART. YOU ALL ARE ABSOLUTELY HERO’S IN MY BOOK.

It is absolutely treason to refuse to protect our borders, and/or, to obstruct our borders being secured. Period. We are not so slowly, become a third world country, were losing OUR traditions and heritage, our values are being lost into a multi-cultural pot of illegals and those who refuse to assimilate. Liberals have shown for a number of years how anti-America they are, and theyre ratcheting up their shrill emotional rhetoric and propaganda as they shoe America further down their sick, diseased hole of “inclusion, tolerance, and diversity”. Liberals are THE domestic enemies the oath to defend the Constitution mentions.

Isn’t it funny how the last two Democratic administrations’ presidential campaigns (Clinton and Obama) both called for a southern wall to be built. When did the importance to do so change? What is the #1 responsibility of our Federal government? I would say “National security” wouldn’t you? This partisan governing is not making it. You all have been elected to work together and protect this country. NOW do your job! Or, we’ll find someone who will.

Is there a fund from private citizens that’s being collected that cu geese cannot touch?

Tear gas and rubber bullets are a temporary solution, but they would go a long way towards
slowing/stopping this invasion. Drug mules and armed Mexicans on the the US side should be shot on site. These two common sense actions would greatly slow the invasion till the wall
is built. Until there are noticeable consequences the invasion will continue unabated.

Just remember that walls are worthless without people to watch and defend them. Walls are a force multiplier, but any number multiplied by zero is zero. We need to make sure the Left doesn’t neuter INS and/or the Border Patrol. If they do, the wall will be meaningless.

I for one would contribute to help fund the border wall with private funds if a legal National campaign is initiated. . I am 77 and detest the far left drain-bred goons, and even more-so: Muslims in Congress. Too, drug traffickers— would be in terror of real punishment—were that left up to this former National guardsman.

Here is the correct webpage for donations, started by Brian Kolfage, a Purple Heart triple amputee veteran. https://webuildthewall.us/ Any other website taking donations may very well be suspect/fake, so please check this one out, and see if it isn’t the right one! Thank you.
