An organization raising funds to build a new border wall on private land made its pitch in Southern Arizona earlier this month. "We Build the Wall, Inc." held a town hall hosted by Quail Creek Republicans in Sahuarita that was attended by former White House chief strategist Stephen Bannon. Its founder, Brian Kolfage, spoke to Lorraine Rivera about why he's taken on the initiative.
"I was just fed up with the way things were going within the government," Kolfage said. "And I thought maybe I could have a chance to influence something and have an impact."
Kolfage's efforts gained attention in December when he initially tried raising the funds on the popular crowdfunding site, GoFundMe. The campaign failed to meet its goal in time, leading the group to form a nonprofit so it could continue collecting donations.
"The wall will pretty much look like what President Trump's building now. ... We are going to be the people with the money. We will hire out contractors to go on the private property and build it," Kolfage said. "It's going to be very simple as if that property owner just wanted to build a fence."
