UNITED STATES (VOP TODAY NEWS) — A former US military veteran has been building a first section of a special border wall between the United States and Mexico funded by supporters of US President Donald Trump.
“It’s the way Americans say to Congress,” Jeff Allen, one of the owners of the piece of land on which the wall will be built, said: “You’re useless, and we’re on the lookout.
Allen, who expressed his determination to help Trump fulfill his pledge to build a “big wall” on the border, last week set up a steel fence at his home in Sunland Park, adjacent to the Mexican city of Ciudad Juarez.
“We are building the wall,” set up by the veteran warlord Brian Collage, who has amputated three limbs, is financing the project to help build the border wall with millions of dollars of donations raised through the Internet, he said.
The right-wing strategist and former chief Trump adviser Steve Bannon heads the company’s advisory board.
“This is not Europe, this is America, we are protecting our borders,” said the 56-year-old Allen told AFP and construction work was under way behind him.
The US president is in conflict with Congress to fund the construction of the wall, and he is demanding billions of dollars to fund the project. The conflict has led to a partial closure of US official administrations for more than a month.
Allen said that the special wall to be built will be 800 meters long and will be built according to the specifications set by the US administration of the border fence.
Allen said he had no problem with the immigrants. He was married to a Mexican and his daughter was born in Ciudad Juárez where he lived for three and a half years.
“The issue is not racist,” he said, stressing that the motive for the project was “to protect myself and protect America’s borders.” Those who want to emigrate should go to one of the entry points and make a request, he said.
Colvag has collected about $ 20 million through GoFundMe, a very small figure compared to the $ 1 billion he wanted to donate to the administration. Has changed his endeavor and established the company “We are building the wall” to build parts of the border fence with special funding.
