Border Wall Go Fund Me Nears $16M; Counter Campaign For Ladders Not So Much

Over 5,000 people, in a effort to apparently turn their head to illegal immigration and or openly promote it have donated to a campaign designed to raise money for ladders to get over Trump’s wall.According to the Daily Wire, A GoFundMe campaign, titled “We The People Will Fund The Wall,” is closing in $16 million in just six days. Some 259,936 have donated $15,828,419 toward a $1 billion goal, making the average donation just over $60. The page was created by Brian Kolfage, a triple amputee Air Force veteran.

I have grandparents who immigrated to America legally, they did it the correct way and it’s time we uphold our laws, and get this wall BUILT! It’s up to Americans to help out and pitch in to get this project rolling, Kolfage wrote when developing the GoFundMe page.

In response, Charlotte Clymer, a transgender Army veteran and activist from Texas, launched a page titled “Ladders to Get Over Trump’s Wall.”

“We saw some folks are raising money for a border wall to keep out our migrant siblings and fellow human beings, who are fleeing violence and persecution and whose tragically-underpaid labor is essential to the U.S. economy. Seems like a bad idea on countless levels for everyone involved. Maybe we should focus on human rights and creating a community that reflects our supposed values,” Clymer wrote on the page.

And even though at a rate of $1.7 million daily, it would take their fund about 35 years to raise the $21.7 billion that Trump’s own Dept. of Homeland Security says would be needed to build said wall, we wanna make sure ladders are ready to send over to our undocumented friends and help them.

If this seems ludicrous, we welcome you to the coalition of reasonable adults.

Should we not reach our goal — or should they (ahem) not reach theirs — all funds raised will go to the Refugee and Immigrant Center for Education and Legal Services (RAICES) , a Texas-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit agency that promotes justice by providing free and low-cost legal services to underserved immigrant children, families, and refugees.
