First-ever private border wall built in New Mexico
“We’re closing a gap that’s been a big headache for them,” said Mr. Kobach, who is general counsel for We Build the Wall.

Mr. Trump’s plans to build hundreds of miles of new and replacement wall took a hit late last week when a federal judge ordered a halt to part of his emergency declaration and shifting of money within the Pentagon to make up for Congress’s refusal to grant him the money he wanted.

"U.S. District Court Judge Haywood Gilliam, an Obama appointee confirmed in 2014, donated $6,900 to Barack Obama’s debut campaign for president and $14,500 to his reelection campaign, according to federal election records. The same records also indicate he contributed $4,500 to the Democratic National Committee in 2012 and, between 2012 and 2015, sent $3,100 to the Covington Burling LLP PAC, which supports candidates from both parties. His contributions totaled $29,000. "

Enter We Build the Wall, which says now that it’s proved it can build border wall. The group has eyes on other areas where private landowners hold border lands and want a barrier to cut down on the illegal traffic across their property.

The new wall begins at the Rio Grande and runs up to the lower elevations of Mount Cristo Rey. The wall on the Texas side ends at the river, and there used to be a gap on the New Mexico side running from the river over to Mount Cristo Rey.

Some emoji's don't work, and few have even disappeared, like Pinocchio to denote someone is lying or making stuff up. It's gotten to where we can't poke fun and annoy some left wingers, cuz it might hurt their sensitive snowflake feelings.

Noticed this link while on that site, and while a tad off topic, might prove to be interesting in the coming weeks and months.

Regardless of what a "couple" on NT say - Barr is an attorney who knows his stuff and will utilize every bit of it to stop the Dems/Libs whiny suits because they lost.

Don't give up !

The People the "Left" doesn't like (the little folk), have more power than they think !

The "Little" guy is actually helping to fund this "Private" adventure !

If other adventures are blocked, that would let ya' know that Big Liberal Gov. really isn't about the "Little' folks !

First-ever private border wall built in New Mexico

A private group announced Monday that it has constructed a half-mile wall along a section of the U.S.-Mexico border in New Mexico, in what it said was a first in the border debate.

The 18-foot steel bollard wall is similar to the designs used by the Border Patrol, sealing off a part of the border that had been a striking gap in existing fencing, according to We Build the Wall, the group behind the new section.

The section was also built faster and, organizers say, likely more cheaply than the government has been able to manage in recent years.

Kris Kobach, a former secretary of state in Kansas and an informal immigration adviser to President Trump, says the New Mexico project has the president’s blessing and says local Border Patrol agents are eager to have the assistance.

“We’re closing a gap that’s been a big headache for them,” said Mr. Kobach, who is general counsel for We Build the Wall.

This seems to be a day for me to get confused, hasn't a half mile of private barrier been built thus far? - do you desire to fence all of NM .. I would like to fence off Montana!

Here is a fun link to how Montanans feel : )

That link reminds me of a State border sign I once saw:  "Welcome to Iowa. Bring Something to Do."

 took a hit late last week when a federal judge ordered a halt to part of his emergency declaration

that ruling will be overturned in the end and we can then thank the left for more rightwing precedent set at the court

good fun all around :)

I was walking through a local mall and came upon a Mexican Book Store. Never having seen one before, I went in. As I was wandering around, a clerk asked if he could help me find something. I asked, “Do you have a copy of Donald Trump’s book about his proposed immigration policy regarding Mexicans?"

”The clerk said, “F... you, get out, and stay out!"

 

I said, “Yes, that's the one!  Do you have it in paperback?!"
