When Airman Kolfage started the campaign to build the wall last month, he had no idea it would grow so big, so fast. Millions were raised in a matter of days, and news networks ran stories about it nationwide. Kolfage made two trips to the nation’s capital after elected officials & political powerbrokers took note of his success.
Xcluded.us caught up to Brian for an exclusive interview
“For decades, the federal government has failed miserably in one of the most fundamental obligations that a government owes to its people: securing the nation’s borders.
As illegal immigration continues to soar in the United States – burdening American taxpayers, undermining public safety and taking precious resources away from the poorest Americans who need them most – Democrats refuse to fund border wall along the U.S. southern border.
Now, the American people are sending a message to Washington with a grassroots effort to solve the problem themselves.
Triple amputee, U.S. military veteran Brian Kolfage’s GoFundMe campaign to raise money for President Trump’s U.S.-Mexico border wall the project has received an astonishing $19.459, 620 million in contributions from ordinary Americans – in just 20 days.
“We are building this wall one way or another,” Kolfage declared in an exclusive interview with XCluded. “China’s Wall Won’t Have Anything on Our Wall, and we’re gonna shock the world.”
Patriots are not only willing to cast their votes to secure our national security and sovereignty, the Air Force veteran explained, but they’re giving their hard-earned money to do it themselves.
“Americans are just angry. They are angry with politicians. They have been promised something. This has been going on for decades. We have been promised immigration overhaul and a wall – border security,” he said. “I decided enough is enough. I was angry. And I decided to create the Go Fund me, just to see what would happen with it. And it took off – it blew up.
“Everyone is putting the money where their mouth is – it gave them a chance to speak and be heard – and it’s exactly what people are doing. They are angry. They are sick at swearing at the TV, and they are donating – donating, donating, donating.”
Kolfage, who lost three limbs while serving in Iraq in 2004, started The GoFundMe campaign on December 16, 2018.
“If the 63 million people who voted for Trump each pledge $80, we can build the wall,” the GoFundMe page states. “That equates to roughly 5 Billion Dollars, even if we get half, that’s half the wall. We can do this.”
Kolfage expects the number of donations to dramatically increase when he soon reveals when and how the wall will be constructed.
“We are going to be rolling out [the plan] in the next few days. We are just waiting for the legal with GoFundMe to accept what we are doing,” he said. “When we announce our plan, that $18 million, I guarantee you, is going to jump over $100 million in a day. All the people who are coming out to support it – they love this country and it’s going to shock probably the world.
“We need people to go to that WeFundTheWall.com and also sign our petition. We are using that to build a database to show how many people support this wall since Chuck [Schumer] and Nancy [Pelosi] say no one supports the wall. The more signatures we get on there the better. And we are getting this wall built – One way or another its getting built.”
Kolfage warned the Democrat platform of socialism and open borders jeopardize future generations of “the freedoms we have today.”
“I joined [the Airforce] in 2001, just before 9/11,” he said. “In Iraq is where I got blown up – lost my leg, lost my hand, I earned my purple heart. That’s ultimately what shaped me to where I am today and my mindset. Because I feel so deeply invested into this country – because I gave my limbs, I gave my hand. I feel like I owe it to my country and my family to ensure that we have the freedoms that we have today and not allow that stuff just to slide and be pushed away because of what’s happening with socialism and open borders.”
Trending Now on We Build the Wall News
Supreme Court Turns Away Environmentalists Trying To Stop Border Wall Construction
Another victory for national security & the border wall. This will help us as we continue the construction of our next projects if environmentalists come after us as they did at Project 2.
“The Supreme Court on Monday declined to hear an appeal from a coalition of environmental groups that pushed back against the Trump administration’s construction of the wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.
The groups, led by the Center for Biological Diversity, challenged a 1996 law giving the president authority to fight illegal immigration and border crossings, and limiting some legal challenges.
The coalition claimed that the Trump administration did not conduct sufficient environmental impact studies for the construction and that endangered species like the jaguar and Mexican wolf would be adversely affected by the barrier.
First, We Build The Wall, Inc was challenged on building our second border wall due to the claim that it would impact butterflies. Now, this. Perhaps we should just let the jaguars live along the border wall as a second layer of security?https://t.co/I6woZ1PSUV#BorderWall #KAG

They had asserted in their case that the law’s allowance for the secretary of Homeland Security to waive any laws necessary to allow the quick construction of border fencing violates the Constitution’s separation of powers. The D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals had dismissed the case, citing a prior case from 2007 with “a nearly identical context.”
“This Court finds that precedent persuasive, and it compels the conclusion that Plaintiffs’ complaint fails to state plausible constitutional claims as a matter of law,” the Circuit Court’s ruling said.”
Meanwhile they’re funding frivolous lawsuits against @WeBuildtheWall bahahaha keep donating to them, it goes to fund their legal bills!! #karma @DonaldJTrumpJr @mamendoza480 @cbs4rgv @AP @FogCityMidge @nababuterfly @NatButterflies https://t.co/bdvJ4rDjc9
