    The GoFundMe Border Wall Blocked Access To A Monument. It's Been Ordered To Keep A Gate Open Indefinitely.
    "They think they can build now and ask questions later, and that's not how it works," a water agency spokesperson said.

    The viral crowdfunding effort to build a wall on the southern border aimed at deterring immigrants from crossing illegally was only recently completed, but on Monday the newly installed wall suffered a major setback — a large gate built into the barrier was ordered opened by officials.

    The controversial half-mile wall constructed along the US–Mexico border near Sunland Park, New Mexico, was erected earlier this month after organizers raised more than $23 million on GoFundMe, the online crowdfunding site. But We Build the Wall organizers failed to obtain the required authorization to build the barrier on federal land, cutting off access to waterways and a public monument.

    "This is normally done well in advance of a construction project," said Lori Kuczmanski, a spokesperson for the International Boundary and Water Commission, the agency that addresses waterway issues between the US and Mexico. "They think they can build now and ask questions later, and that's not how it works."

    In response, IBWC officials on Monday afternoon propped open a large gate installed in the wall. The gate, constructed on roughly 33 feet of federal property, had blocked officials from accessing a levee and dam, and cut off public access to a historic monument known as Monument One, the first in a series of obelisks that mark the US–Mexico border from El Paso to Tijuana.

    On Tuesday evening, after publication of this story, IBWC announced the gate would be locked at night "due to security concerns." The agency said in a statement that it "is continuing to work with We Build The Wall regarding its permit request."

    The initial decision by the agency had prompted a series of angry tweets from We Build the Wall founder Brian Kolfage, who claimed that "Mexico just opened all gates" through IBWC for a "mass invasion."

    This is just too funny. A pro-wall group a) trespasses on federal property and b) lacks proper documentation. Gee, isn't that what the illegals coming over the border are doing?

    The Trump train continues to be stocked to the gills with idiots of every stripe.

    So these guys undertake an unauthorized construction project on federal property, and the government agency is continuing to work with them.

    Another guy leaves humanitarian aid there, and they try to put him in prison for 20 years.

    An activist faced 20 years in prison for helping migrants. But jurors wouldn’t convict him.

    Priebus recalled that McGahn said that the President had asked him to "do crazy shit," but he thought McGahn did not tell him the specifics of the President's request because McGahn was trying to protect Priebus from what he did not need to know.

    You're trying to stop something illegal by doing something illegal? How is that right in any logical or biblical sense?

    I doubt that the International Boundary and Water Commission has this kind of power.

    What we have here is, yet again, a way to stop thru bureaucratic bullshit a project that should be happening.
