Brian Kolfage, the Air Force triple amputee veteran who founded a non-profit organization to build the wall at the southern United States border with private donations, said he expects to break ground in the next couple of months.
Kolfage told Breitbart News in an exclusive phone interview on Thursday, “We’re moving forward with the wall. I’ve got some land owners who are ready to rock and roll, and want us to start slapping up some wall.”
“We should be able to break ground in the next couple of months, we hope, according to our experts,” he said.
Kolfage said they have been keeping the White House informed of their work through one of their board members, former Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach. Kobach told the New York Times last week that the president has personally blessed the effort.
Asked what materials they are considering using for the wall, Kolfage said, “We’re looking at every option, but we’re also going to do whatever the border patrol wants … whatever works for them.”
