Kolfage said his “new plan for action” is to ask donors to give their donation to a new nonprofit called “We Build the Wall, Inc.”
“We are better-equipped than our own government to use the donated funds to build an actual wall on the southern border,” Kolfage said. “Our highly experienced team is highly confident that we can complete significant segments of the wall in less times, and for far less money, that the federal government, while meeting or exceeding all required regulatory, engineering, and environmental specifications.”
Kolfage said he and his team have already contacted landowners in Texas, and has enlisted a team of architects and engineers to begin the design process.
Some experts told The Intelligencer they were skeptical of a do-it-yourself wall-building project, but said it could be done in theory.
“If somebody wants to buy land and build a wall, more power to them I guess,” said David J. D’Angelo, the director of field research at the Foreign Policy Research Institute and an expert on border security. “It would have zero impact on the real political issues at play. But it’s a free country. For now.”
