The border wall between the U.S. and Mexico might go up sooner than expected thanks to some Americans who have made it their mission to fund the project through private donations.
According to The Daily Caller, America First Foundation Inc. was raising money for President Donald Trump’s proposed border wall.
“This non-profit was created to help fund and build that wall and show the world what American determination and strength is all about,” the group’s Facebook page states. “Americans coming together to do something great!”
By Thursday afternoon the group had raised about $2,000 of its $21 billion goal to fund the wall. The public can track donations on the AFF website.
Steven Vulich, co-founder and vice president of America First Foundation, told The Daily Caller that he expected the project to grow by leaps and bounds.
“They are going to put up the wall. We’re just trying to help,” he said. “There are people who give recurring amounts every payday. They drop $50 every paycheck.”
The group has engaged the services of a public relations firm and hopes to gain the attention of the national media.
During his time on the campaign trail and continuing into his presidency, Trump promised that Mexico would pay for the wall. Meanwhile Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto has repeatedly denounced the wall and stated that his country will not pay for the 30-foot-high, completely human-proof wall.
Vulich said even if his non-profit fails to reach the $21 billion goal, the organization simply hopes to get Americans together to help with such an important project.
America voted for President Trump in large part because of his national security promises, and Americans are eager to see those promises made good. Now they can pitch in to help.
