Posted on 05/30/2019 1:36:08 PM PDT by bobsunshine
Consumer complaints have prompted the state of Florida to open an investigation into the nonprofit group that raised more than $20 million to build a private border wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.
The investigation into the Florida-based group, We Build The Wall, was launched in mid-May, a spokesperson for the Department of Agriculture said in a statement Thursday.
Kolfage and his team insisted they had to remain silent in the lead-up to breaking ground in order to avoid lawsuits from groups like the ACLU.
Remember powerful people want to stop our progress, so to not tip anyone off we are radio silent!! Kolfage wrote in a Facebook post in May.
Sunland Park Mayor Javier Perea was also caught by surprise. He announced Tuesday a cease and desist order to the private landowner where We Build The Walls barrier was built, alleging a permit wasnt obtained prior to construction and that the structure was built in violation of a city ordinance.
Kolfage said his organization received the green light to build prior to breaking ground and said the citys cease and desist was bullshit.
Kolfage announced Thursday morning that Sunland Park rescinded its order and authorized his group to resume construction.

Remember that the Florida Department of Agriculture is led by a far-left hack, Nicole “Nikki” Fried, who was the only RAT to win statewide in Florida in 2018.
So the fund raising group is based in Florida and the fence is being constructed in New Mexico. Is that right?
What business is it of Florida?
Then I remembered that an ultra-left moonbat was elected head of the Florida Department of Agriculture last November.
That’s right. How she won I’ll never understand. Most floridians are too ill informed to know how powerful SecAg is.
They are building a wall in Florida?
Florida’s Department of Agriculture is now run by a lunatic Dem...............
You can bet the “consumer complaints” were organized by a leftard organization coordinating with SecAg.
Thanks for your election ‘help’ in Florida. I tell folks about your genius ways all the time. Too bad Matt lost to this nut. He was perfect for the job coming from generations of farming and ranching.
Nikki bought the race with $10 million carpet bagging Anti-2-Amendment funds.
Interesting. But how much sway does the mayor have along the Federal US border ROW? -
If you build it, they won’t come!
its just a stupid probe. Kolfage should just ignore it..
video of wall being built!
We are back to work building the wall! Heres new permit! WINNING!
It wasnt a cease & desist it was a stop order. We cleared it.
looks like they have already completed quite a bit of the wall already...
Every time we try to stop something, they tell us we have No Standing.
Where does FL have standing in this matter? Where is their border with Mexico or where is the wall being built on FL property?
Here is a link to Fishers method of building the concrete wall, which is what we should be doing.
It includes a road at the top level of the wall.
THIS is President Trumps big beautiful wall that he kept talking about, instead of the temporary metal barrier thats now going up.
10 minutes, A vision of ‘the big beautiful wall’ begins at about 5:45 if you want to skip ahead.
This is lawfare by the Left, of the type that harassed Sarah Palin out of office.
Not your average DemocRAT scum but Broward county Democrat scum!
“Kolfage announced Thursday morning that Sunland Park rescinded its order and authorized his group to resume construction.”
Money quote. And Kolfage was right, it was bu!!sh!t. Mayor was just being an ahole and obviously didn’t have a leg to stand on.
