The GoFundMe campaign that was raising money to build a wall between the US-Mexico border did not meet its $1 billion goal, which means the platform will begin issuing refunds to donors.
On Friday, Brian Kolfage, who created the fundraiser, updated the campaign's GoFundMe page, urging donors to redirect their donations to a new 501(c)(4) non-profit Florida Corporation named “We Build the Wall, Inc.”
The campaign, created in December of last year, had raised $20 million.
There we have it. Conservatives didn't care enough about the wall to even raise a down payment on a few miles of a wall. The free market solution has failed, and now a minority of Americans are holding around 800k people hostage and demanding everyone else pay for what they want.
You had the chance to put your money where your mouth is and you didn't, and now you're hoping you can use the government to force everyone else to foot the bill. Keep your fingers out of our pockets. If you didn't care enough about it why should we?
