Good news, everyone. Not only is our third border wall project slated to begin soon (most likely in California), but our fourth project will be hot on its heels.

VIDEO: First Anniversary Of Our Border Wall Build In Sunland Park, New Mexico

Published

* By

Memorial Day weekend marked the one year anniversary of the construction of our first border wall project in Sunland Park, New Mexico. The saga began late in 2018 when the founder of We Build the Wall, triple-amputee vet Brian Kolfage started a GoFundMe account & asked the American people to pitch in to build the wall on our southern border. Within three days of starting the GoFundMe, Kolfage had raised $9 million & his project attracted media attention nationwide. After 25 days, Kolfage had raised $20 million from 337,518 patriotic Americans.

The original plan was to donate funds raised to the government & have the money earmarked for border wall construction. When it became clear that the government would not appropriate the funds for a border wall, Kolfage formed a non-profit designed to fund construction of the wall on private property.

Members of the We Build the Wall team grew to include notable public figures such as: Steve Bannon, Joy Villa, Tom Tancredo, Curt Schilling, Kris Kobach, Sheriff David Clarke, Brandon Darby, Erik Prince, Angel Mom Mary Ann Mendoza, Angel Dad Steve Ronnebeck, and Brigadier General Dr. Robert S. Spalding III.

After months of scouting possible locations for the first section of wall in the border states, Kolfage, Kris Kobach, and I took a trip to Sunland Park, New Mexico in April. The owner & and co-owner of American Eagle Brick Company, George Cudahy & Jeff Allen, agreed to have a section of wall built on their property which sits on the Rio Grande River. Cudahy & Allen had endured years of attacks from cartel members & illegal aliens who poured over this section of the border. They were attacked by rock-throwing illegals & drug smugglers who stole everything not locked down on almost a weekly basis, and they saw almost 700 illegal aliens cross into the U.S. through their property every week. Construction of the wall on their property would begin a month later.

On Saturday, May 18, 2019, Foreman Mike and I were on-site. Mike would oversee the construction of the wall & make sure there was no money wasted, and I was sent to document the construction of the wall from start to finish. Fisher Industries was contracted to build the wall, and CEO Tommy Fisher directed day-to-day operations. That Saturday, heavy equipment operators began clearing the land & reducing parts of the mountain the wall would go up.

In the video below, you can hear Foreman Mike directing the operator of a 40-ton CAT 825K how to get unstuck in the difficult terrain.

This is from the first night we were on site for the construction of Airman Kolfage's border wall. May 18th. The terrain was so rough a 40-ton CAT 825K compactor got stuck & had to "duck walk" up the mountain. You can hear Foreman Mike barking orders to the operator. Everyone cheered when it made it up the hill. I have about a thousand videos of wall construction so I'll be pumping them out as fast as I can. I'll try to keep to chronological order. Donate for our next sections of wall here & tell 'em Photographer Jeff sent you! Thanks for all your support from We Build the Wall! https://www.gofundme.com/f/thetrumpwall

On Monday, May 20th, transformation of the mountain began in earnest. We faced high temperatures & dust storms which made it difficult to progress, but the Fisher team did an outstanding job despite the unforgiving elements. The video below shows a dust storm that enveloped the mountain that Monday.

This is from May 20th, second day of construction on Airman Kolfage's border wall. Huge dust storm as I hiked around the mountain with temps in the 90s. Warning: Colorful language! There were several days where all the surrounding mountains were blocked by these massive storms. Glad I had my shemaghs & desert goggles on! Follow me at Jeff Rainforth & never miss a vid. Lots more of the wall construction coming! https://www.gofundme.com/TheTrumpWall

In this video is Tommy Fisher of Fisher Industries placing the first section of our bollard wall on May 24th, 2019. Over Memorial Day weekend, Fisher’s crews worked 3 days & nights to get a major portion of the wall up while city officials were off for the holiday. This was done on purpose as the project had been a secret until then. We knew liberal politicians would try to stop us. They served us with a cease-and-desist order after they realized what we were doing. We threatened to sue the city of Sunland Park, NM. and a day & half later we were back in business.

I shot the video below on Memorial Day last year (Monday, May 27th), three days after we placed the first bollard sections. Fisher’s crews worked through the night & placed more sections after this.

On June 2nd, 2019, the final bollard section was placed at the top of the mountain. The wall also employs motion sensors that reach 40 feet into Mexico and 40 feet into the U.S. A video surveillance system runs 24/7, and Border Patrol agents have access to all of the data. A concrete speedway was constructed so Border Patrol agents can quickly get to the top of the wall if anyone tries to illegally enter the U.S. or smuggle in drugs. The video montage below shows the progress of our first border wall project from start to finish. To date, no one has gotten over the wall.

And finally, Foreman Mike gives an update on the completed wall. A big thanks to him for enduring grueling work weeks and up to 16 hour days on the mountain.

We’d like to thank the American people for making this project possible, and those of the WBTW team (Amanda Shea, Dustin Stockton, Jennifer Lawrence, and Tiffiny Ruegner) who worked tirelessly behind the scenes to make this happen.

As of today, our second border wall project, 3.5 miles on the Rio Grande River in Mission, Texas is complete thanks to Fisher Industries, and we’re onto projects 3 & 4 which we hope to start as soon as the Covid-19 lockdowns are relaxed enough.
