The border wall is starting to get crowdfunded and honestly its not a bad idea. Instead of waiting months or years for politicians to act people are doing it themselves.

“This is the first time any private organization has built border wall on private land,” Kobach told Pete Hegseth, adding that the Army Corps of Engineers had said previously that the strip of land was too rugged for fencing.
Koback said the project was funded through private donations to the organization.
“We’ll keep on building as long as people keep chipping in. The average contribution has been only $67 but so…
