The GoFundMe page to build the wall was a sensation on the right in late 2018 and raised more than $20 million. Months later, there’s no evidence that any construction has started, despite claims from Brian Kolfage and his allies that construction would start in April.
More than a week into May, though, We Build the Wall hasn’t shown any proof that any ground has been broken, and donors say they weren’t invited to any promised groundbreaking ceremony.
Donors to the group have begun taking out their frustrations on the organization’s Facebook page, which often hypes the threat of immigrants crossing the border illegally.
“Show me video of wall being built and I’ll pony up my next donation,” reads one angry Facebook comment.
