in the proximity ofthe videos pending bill battle continues over the border-wall-financing
The battle over the border wall-the financing was just trying to viral a GoFundMe account to raise money for President Trump’s controversial barrier, while another is in search of funds for the use of ladders to scale the wall.
Last week, conservative activist Brian Kolfage is a GoFundMe set up to raise campaign, private funds to pay for Trump border wall. To date, the campaign has raised a little more than $16 million toward its goal of $1 billion – is a far cry from the $21.7 billion that the Department of Homeland Security says is needed to build a wall along the entire southern border.
Still, that 16 million dollars was incentive enough to liberal activist Charlotte Clymer start a GoFundMe to buy campaign, ladders to climb the wall. The newly created campaign is a bit tongue-in-cheek and also the Fund-founders, admit that you will probably not reach the 100 million Dollar goal (the Fund currently has only raised around $135,000), but whatever amount is eventually raised will be donated to the Texas-based refugee and immigrant center for education and legal advice.
“We want to make sure that ladders are ready to send to our undocumented friends and help them,” the GoFundMe page stated. “You see, you will never reach your goal, but no matter how much we increase, we reach our.”
Talk, Business Insider, Clymer, said the campaign to the attention on the benefits of immigration to the United States to
“I’m really happy how this has generated conversation on the absurdity of the wall in General,” she told Business Insider. “Undocumented people are not crime or drug smuggling, or for the job to bring steal”, and nonsense to our country.”
The battle over the border wall has led to the current government shutdown as lawmakers argue over funding for Trump’s signature campaign promise.
Mick Mulvaney, who takes over as Deputy White house chief of staff, told “Fox News Sunday”, he’s just waiting for the word Senate democratic leader Chuck Schumer of New York, after the White house issued a counter-offer in a dispute over funding for the wall.
Mulvaney went on to outline the offer, but said that it will require between Trump the 5.7 billion U.S. dollars and 1.3 billion dollars the Democrats offered.
A stalemate over the wall and led parts of the government shut down early Saturday morning, after the funding for a variety of departments and agencies expires.
The shutdown was expected to at the earliest to the last by next Thursday. Both the house and Senate have adjourned until later in the week.
