    Pro-wall calls flood Sunland Park City Hall following cease-and-desist

    May 29, 2019

    Web-based campaign urges town to reconsider cease-and-desist order

    SUNLAND PARK, New Mexico -- Officials in this Southern New Mexico town received thousands of calls on Wednesday in support of a privately funded border fence. This came the day after Mayor Javier Perea issued a cease and desist order stopping further work on the border barrier because it lacked a municipal construction permit.

    "I got 800 calls on my answering machine in one hour. They're all calling from out of state. They are in favor of the wall," said a Sunland Park city official who declined to be named.
    The official said the calls were the result of a web-based campaign from supporters of the structure being built on American Eagle Brick Co. property just east of Mt. Cristo Rey, in Sunland Park city limits. The steel-bollard fence was funded by a GoFundMe campaign spearheaded by We Build the Wall.

    Members of the group said on Twitter they plan a "massive" rally in support of the structure this Thursday at the wall site. They also urged supporters to keep pressuring Sunland Park to capitulate.

    "Please keep calling Sunland Park at 575-589-7585 and respectfully tell them to stop playing games with their bogus stop work order. Keep calling and keep the pressure on," said Dustin Stockton, vice president of We Build the Wall.

    On Wednesday, the receptionist at Sunland Park City Hall answered non-stop telephone calls, writing down whether the caller was in favor or opposed to the border fence.

    "OK, ma'am. I'll tell the mayor you support the wall," she said. "No ma'am, we're not in Mexico, we're in New Mexico".

    Neither Mayor Perea nor members of City Council contacted by KTSM 9 News were available for comment. The City issued a statement late in the morning saying the town had too many press inquiries to handle and that it wouldn't be making a comment today. The City called for a press conference Thursday at 1:30 p.m.

    Perea on Tuesday said the City issued the cease and desist order because the property owner didn't have a permit. He said Sunland Park officials said the application lacked a site survey, impact statement and other requirements. He also said city officials received contradictory information from the petitioner.

    However, supporters of the wall said on Twitter that a Sunland Park official who visited the site last week gave the fence a green light. This assertion couldn't be verified on Wednesday because city officials made themselves unavailable for comment.

    Border Wall on Private Land in New Mexico Reportedly Set to be Completed Despite Cease-and-Desist Order

    May 30, 2019 Updated: May 30, 2019Share

    A mayor in New Mexico issued a cease-and-desist order to a company building a border wall on private land between the United States and Mexico but the nonprofit behind the wall said the section was set to be completed on May 30.
    Brian Kolfage, an Air Force veteran, raised more than $22 million to build portions of the border wall on private land. Construction work started on May 17 south of Sunland Park, New Mexico in the El Paso, Texas, metropolitan area.
    Javier Perea, the mayor of the City of Sunland Park, told CBS 4 on May 28, that the wall was in violation of city ordinance. He said an application filed by the owner of the property was incomplete, prompting the cease-and-desist order, and that walls can only be up to six feet tall.
    According to documents filed by the American Eagle Brick Company, the owner of the land, and obtained by KVIA, the half-mile of wall was said to cost $5.8 million. Sunland Park officials declined to say which part of the application was missing.

    After the cease-and-desist order was issued on Tuesday, more than 2,500 phone calls came into the city from supporters of the wall.
    The nonprofit behind the wall said the city did say it could build it.
    “One official gave us the all-clear on Thursday. Another gave us the all-clear on Friday,” Chris Kobach, a representative for We Build the Wall, told CBS 4, referring to May 23 and May 24. “And that’s actually when they came down and examined the site and told us we could proceed.”
    Kolfage described the order as “Liberals trying to intimidate us! SOUND THE ALARM” and said the city had given them the green light to build.

    He said in an update on May 30 that the section of the wall was set to be completed by 10 a.m. on Thursday.
    In a press release, We Build the Wall said the owner of the property was originally told by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers that a wall would be too difficult to build on the mountainside, describing it as a “natural barrier,” but that his nonprofit and the contractor, Fisher Industries, was going to complete the wall by Thursday morning.
    “My. Cristo Rey is an important shrine to thousands of Americans from southern New Mexico and west Texas, as well as visitors from northern Chihuahua, and it’s a beautiful site,” Kolfage stated in the release. “However, it’s not the ‘natural barrier’ that it’s alleged to be, as I was able to roll across the border in my wheelchair with ease.”
    Tommy Fisher, the CEO of Fisher Industries, had told 3 TV on Wednesday night that it would take approximately three more days to finish the wall.
    Kolfage also accused the city of being paid by cartels. Perea, the mayor, admitted there had been corruption in the past but said there is not at present.

(Devon Ravine/Northwest Florida Daily News via AP)“Yes, there was corruption in the past in the city of Sunland Park, but we maintain clean audits with the city of Sunland Park,” Perea told KVIA. “That image is a whole lot different than it was, six or seven years ago.”
    In a statement, New Mexico Gov. Michelle Grisham, a Democrat, said the section of the wall was inconsequential.
    “A multi-faceted and strategic approach is required for establishing and enhancing border security as well as dealing with the humanitarian crisis on our southern border. No president, no federal administration has done enough on these fronts in recent decades, and certainly not in recent months,” she said.
    “But to act as though throwing up a small section of wall on private land does anything to effectively secure our southern border from human- and drug-trafficking or address the humanitarian needs of the asylum seekers and local communities receiving them—that’s nonsense. It takes us farther away from where we all need to be.”

    "Sheriff Clarke....we know how to get shit done" let's get a One Million Man March on that border and turn them around ourselves!

    We have had it with this unrelenting invasion of foreigners dumped on our backs to pay for!

    10 more projects on-line...I hope the money pours in!!!

    I am so proud of Brian Kolfage, all those involved, all who donated, and the team that build that WALL.

    Now follow through and deport 100% of them with no path to stay and send those UAC's back!
