“We Build The Wall” —unless we don’t bother filling out the paperwork.
The GoFundMe border wall campaign, which recently boasted “just under 1 mile” of completed wall construction in Sunland Park, New Mexico, was slapped with a cease and desist order on Tuesday because they didn’t have a building permit.
According to a report by local NBC affiliate KTSM 9 News, Sunland Park officials found that the privately-funded “We Build The Wall” campaign failed to complete the application for a permit and that the wall structure was over the maximum height limit.
