If the government won't fund the wall then the people will... Fed up with the political bickering Brian Kolfage, a Purple Heart recipiant and disabled Iraq War veteran, started a GoFundMe page to help fund Trump's wall along the Mexican border. After just three days Kolfage has raised almost $7 million with over 63,000 people making donations to the cause.
Kolfage said on his GoFundMe page:
"As a veteran who has given so much, 3 limbs, I feel deeply invested to this nation to ensure future generations have everything we have today. Too many Americans have been murdered by illegal aliens and too many illegals are taking advantage of the United States taxpayers with no means of ever contributing to our society.
I have grandparents who immigrated to America legally, they did it the correct way and it's time we uphold our laws, and get this wall BUILT!
It’s up to Americans to help out and pitch in to get this project rolling.
If the 63 million people who voted for Trump each pledge $80, we can build the wall.” That equates to roughly 5 Billion Dollars, even if we get half, that's half the wall. We can do this.
Democrats are going to stall this project by every means possible and play political games to ensure President Trump doesn’t get his victor. They'd rather see President Trump fail, than see America succeed. However, if we can fund a large portion of this wall, it will jumpstart things and will be less money Trump has to secure from our politicians.
This won’t be easy, but it’s our duty as citizens. This needs to be shared every single day by each of you on social media. We can do it, and we can help President Trump make America safe again!"
Kolfage, a married father-of-two lost both legs and his right arm in a 2004 insurgent attack in Iraq. But that hasn't stopped liberals from taking shots at the veteran, some even creating their own GoFundMe pages to mock the Kolfage's page. A Washington D.C. based LBGTQ writer named Charlotte Clymer started a GoFundMe called Refugee and Immigrant Center for Education and Legal Services (RAICES) in opposition to Kolfage - the project's goal is to raise $100 million for legal services for immigrants in Texas. So far she's raise $5,339.
