The erection of a wall by a private group could be a new wrinkle in the border wall debate, which was roiled last week by a judge's order halting President Trump's emergency wall-building plans. A video was released over the weekend titled: "We Built A Wall ... in 3 Days".
The mayor of Sunland Park, New Mexico, has issued a cease-and-desist order to a private group that raised millions to build a wall along the U.S. -Mexico border.
Former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon, who chairs We Build the Wall's advisory board, told CNN Monday that the stretch of private wall connects two 21-mile sections of existing fencing.
Determined to help Trump fulfill his promise to build a "big, attractive wall" on the border, Allen made a decision to do part of it himself, together with the United Constitutional Patriots, a right-wing militia that carries out vigilante border patrols. But after the Treasury Department said that any money transfered to the federal government would be put in a "general use" fund, Kolfage changed his approach, saying he would start a non-profit and use the funds raised to privately build a fence in the U.S. -Mexico border. "Our incredible workers will keep putting the wall up through the steepest portion of this heavily trafficked area we're tackling. and doing it all in the dark. dedicated to ensuring our country's safety". "I love my country and this is a step in protecting my country".
The barrier is reportedly being constructed close to the Mount Cristo Rey statue near the Texas-New Mexico state line across from Mexico.
Trump Says 'Case Closed' After Mueller Statement on Russia Probe
But as the immediate reaction to his comments made clear, there was enormous utility in his approaching the statement in this way. Harris' comments Wednesday sounded a more urgent note than her other recent remarks on impeachment.
A USA group building what it claims is the first private wall on the Mexican border wall on Wednesday said it had stopped construction after a New Mexico town ruled the project lacked necessary permits.
Leaders of We Build the Wall offered different assessments of how much construction had occurred.
Mr. Kolfage said the wall is already working.
"The city ordinance only allows a wall up to 6 feet tall and this far exceeds that", Perea told reporters. In a statement to the Silver City Sun News, El-Paso-based Democrat Rep. Veronica Escobar took particular aim at Kobach and Bannon.
"They can use it how they see fit", Kobach said, adding that the wall is equipped with lights and underground sensors.

Responding to the backlash in a tweet, Kolfage disputed claims he lacked the necessary permits.
Perea and a city spokesman did not immediately return messages requesting comment Tuesday evening.
"We were then instructed by the same city officials that we were good to proceed with construction over the holiday weekend and that we would not have any issues being shut down", Kobach said. "We believe this is a last-ditch effort to intimidate us from completing this historic project by a local government with a long history of corruption problems".
The fundraiser was launched as Congress refused President Donald Trump funding for his signature campaign promise.
"We're not stopping until we're done", Kolfage wrote Monday.
