Private border wall group ordered to keep gate open
By Victor Morton - The Washington Times - Tuesday, June 11, 2019

The builders of a private border wall in New Mexico have been ordered by an international agency to keep a gate permanently open.

According to a report in Buzzfeed, the half-mile wall near Sunland Park cut off official access to a levee and a dam and public access to Monument One, a series of obelisks marking the U.S.-Mexico border.

The We Build the Wall barrier also featured a gate built on about 33 feet of federal property without proper advance permission.

“This is normally done well in advance of a construction project,” said Lori Kuczmanski, a spokeswoman for the International Boundary and Water Commission, which handles waterway issues between the U.S. and Mexico. “They think they can build now and ask questions later, and that’s not how it works.”

Commission officials propped open that gate in response earlier this week, to preserve public access and, by extension, making the wall easy to breach.

“We’re going to lock it in an open position until we come into a mutual decision on how this gate is going to operate,” Ms. Kuczmanski told Buzzfeed.

Brian Kolfage, president and founder of We Build the Wall, accused the panel of legal overreach and of complicity in an illegal-immigrant invasion of the U.S.

“The IBWC commissioner @harkjay350 has a bad habit of leaving gates open on our border.last week she left open this gate! largest invasion on record 1000 crossed at once! She just locked our gate wide open for illegals to invade America!” he wrote on Twitter.


The IBWC is a fine example of over reach and growing to big. They are over stepping DHS, national security experts and undermining @realDonaldTrump as soon as they locked our gate open we noticed many other gates around el Paso just opened up!! They are planning for mass invasion,” he continued.

In a statement to The Hill, Mr. Kolfage predicted that the dispute with the water commission “is about to be fully resolved in our favor.”


"The International Boundary and Water Commission (Spanish: Comisión Internacional de Límites y Aguas) is an international body created by the United States and Mexico in 1889 to apply the rules for determining the location of their international boundary when meandering rivers transferred tracts of land from one bank to the other, as established under the Convention of November 12, 1884.[1]

The organization was created as the International Boundary Commission by the Convention of 1889 between the United States and Mexico.[2] It was given its present name under the 1944 "Treaty relating to the Utilization of Waters of the Colorado and Tijuana Rivers and of the Rio Grande".[1][2] Under these agreements, the IBWC has a U.S. section and a Mexican section, headquartered in the adjoining cities of El Paso, Texas, and Ciudad Juárez, Chihuahua. The U.S. section is administered by the Department of State, and the Mexican part by the Secretariat of Foreign Relations. "

The Liberals in Liberal New Mexico have continually shown hostility to protecting that state's border with Mexico. The governor openly demonstrated disagreement with the President's policy, even going so far as to disallowing NM's National Guard troops from serving there.

Then the town of Sunland, where the private wall is located did everything in its power to prevent construction only to eventually relent.

Now we have a new party claiming legal authority over the area and demanding the builders leave a gate ajar thus rendering the wall useless.

So nice to know our New Mexico brethren care so much about their fellow Americans.

The Gate Is Locked and Closed!

That picture of our gate being locked and CLOSED was taken just moments ago!

Dear Patriot

The IBWC has decided to close and lock the Border Wall gate we built tonight and every night going forward! They will only be opening the gate at intermittent times during the day as necessary going forward.

Further calls to the IBWC are no longer necessary and WeBuildTheWall looks forward to working with them as we continue to secure other segments of the border that they operate on. You can support more victories and more segments of wall by chipping in using our new payment processor:
I am so incredibly proud of our team, donors, and supporters. We just continue to work through every obstacle to get the job done and it's both an inspiration and blessing to be a part of this!

We do not want to gloat as we are going to be working with IBWC again on other segments of border wall we are planning. Please help us spread the word that further calls to the IBWC are no longer necessary.

We aren't going to stop fighting until the border is secure and your generous support makes it all possible. Please donate using our new payment processor by clicking the link below.


God Bless
