We Build the Wall Inc. is holding a town hall Tuesday night in Cincinnati to share its view points about building the southern border wall.
The event will be held at 7 p.m. at Hilton Cincinnati Netherland Plaza, 35 West Fifth St.
The town hall will feature Brian Kolfage, Steve Bannon, Kris Kobach, Sheriff David Clarke, Angel Families and more. Doors open at 5:30 p.m.
Attendees will have to pass through a security check point with metal wands and possibly a pat down. They are asked not to bring back packs or other personal bags or luggage.
The sponsors are Ohio Grassroots Rally Team, Main Street Patriots, OANN (One American News Network) and the Gateway Pundit.
We Build the Wall’s website says, “We acknowledge that the federal government won’t be able to accept American Citizen donations specifically for the wall anytime soon. American citizens in the private sector are better equipped than our own government to use the donated funds to build an actual wall on the southern border.”
The organization says its experienced team will build “significant segments of the wall” faster and more cheaply than the government and will meet all regulatory specifications, including environmental rules.
“Ticket to event is free only to supporters of the wall, we reserve the right to remove anyone from the event for any reason at any time. You may be required to show ID with ticket upon entry,” the website says.
Meanwhile, President Donald Trump continues to move forward with his plans to build the border wall. Trump on Monday asked for an additional $8.6 billion for wall construction. At the same time, Trump has endorsed We Build the Wall’s fundraising efforts on GoFundMe.
On the Feb. 12 edition of Tennessee Star Report with Steve Gill and Michael Patrick Leahy – broadcast on Nashville’s Talk Radio 98.3 and 1510 WLAC weekdays from 6:00 am to 9:00 am ET – Gill and Leahy talked to Kolfage about his and his team’s position on building the wall. They discussed how the funds would be transferred via a 501 (c) (4) non-profit initiative, who’s involved and the cost.
More information, including the audio clip, is available here.
In mid-January, Purple Heart veteran Kolfage came out swinging against the mainstream news media after multiple outlets falsely sounded the death knell of his border wall fundraiser and attacked his honesty.
The triple amputee veteran took to Twitter and at least one other outlet to refute false reports that GoFundMe would refund $20 million collected for the wall because Kolfage’s goal had not been met or that he was funneling the money elsewhere. The media campaigns used half-truths to question the honesty of Kolfage, who has been transparent in changing his goal from giving the donations to the shut-down government to build the wall to instead planning to use the money in a nonprofit to buy land on the border and build the wall faster and more inexpensively.
We Build the Wall says on its website it has made progress in studying the feasibility of building the wall. It has consulted experts who have weighed in on legal, engineering, contracting, environmental, accounting, maintenance, and real estate issues.
