Important Updates From The Founder

11/02/2019

We have launch our Plans & Programs section on the website so our donors can further understand how we are spending the money we raise. It’s important to understand that as a 501c4 we are now a social welfare organization, and must impact the social welfare of communities.

Please read our plans and programs here . 

We are on the cusp of breaking ground on Project #3 which will be miles of wall as Project #2 is taking longer than expected with paperwork. But we have 2 projects simultaneously in the works.

As we approach the end of the fiscal year we are beginning our required external audit to comb over all financials in preparation to file our IRS Form 990 in 2020.

Thank you for all your support and we will continue to update you here announcements.

To the supporters of We Build The Wall:

Today marks the 10 month point since the inception of We Build the Wall, and I wanted to update you on our progress.

As you know, we completed our first major wall section in Sunland Park, New Mexico, in June 2019. We constructed a state-of-the-art, 18-foot-tall, steel-bollard border barrier that blocked one of the worst human- and drug-smuggling corridors in the El Paso Sector. The construction of this barrier immediately altered the entire region’s flow of illegal drugs and illegal migrants coming into the United States. We have received an incredible outpouring of heartfelt thanks and support from local Border Patrol and other law enforcement officers who have corroborated the effectiveness of your border wall.

It has been an incredible journey being able to help citizens of our country. We knew that the situation on the border was bad. But working on this project in Sunland Park and seeing the drug smuggling corridors made clear that the border security crisis is even worse than we thought.

As you may remember when we formed the We Build the Wall 501c4 organization, we took on an important mission in addition to building sections of border wall. As I announced on January 11, 2019, “Our mission is to unite private citizens that share a common belief in providing national security for our Southern Border through the construction, administration and maintenance of physical barriers inhibiting illegal entry into the United States.” Uniting citizens who share our interest in border security requires reaching to like-minded citizens and educating the public about the need for border barriers. With those objectives in mind we held educational town hall events. Additionally, we hosted a nationally recognized immigration symposium, and brought in Donald Trump Jr to speak at our recently-completed wall. We have been working diligently to raise awareness of the humanitarian crisis at our border and unite all citizens who share our belief in the value of physical barriers on the border.

But our most important mission remains building new sections of wall. We are deep into the planning of Projects #2 and #3, which are coming soon. Those sections of border wall will also have a major impact when completed. Both projects are complicated in nature and require a lot of extra planning before we break ground. We cannot release exact locations due to security concerns, but rest assured we are working hard to ensure no one can target us like we saw with our first construction phase. As with Project #1, we will begin building and get the job done without a lot of fanfare in advance.

This is where we are today, and we look forward to sharing the exciting news about these projects soon.
