How a Congressman Hopes to Take Advantage of GoFundMe Page That Raised $18 Million for The Wall

Remember Brian Kolfage, the Florida Air Force veteran who took border security into his own hands and started a GoFundMe page asking for donations to build a wall on the southern border? His campaign hit a nerve and took off, raising almost $19 million in a couple weeks, making it the second largest campaign of the year.

Members of Congress took note and are taking advantage of the successful campaign. On Thursday, the first day of the 116th Congress, Rep. Warren Davidson (R-OH) reintroduced his “Buy a Brick, Build the Wall Act." The bill would direct the Treasury Department to set up a fund allowing private citizens to make contributions to fund and maintain border walls. 

Some of his conservative colleagues are all for it.

Yet, Democrats have much different plans for border security. On Thursday, hours after retaking control of the House, they voted for bills that would fund the Department of Homeland Security until Feb. 8 and offer $1.3 billion for the border, not one dollar of which is for a wall. President Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell called it a "non-starter." Hence why the government has been shuttered for two weeks now.

Trump and McConnell plan to meet with new Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi at the White House this afternoon to try and hash out a deal.
