Guy who started the fund may have had ulterior motive.

I think its great that if people want the wall, they can help pay directly. The guy who set it up is looking for a way to ensure it is used only for the wall. Even PTAs have a way to do that with donated money,so is likely entirely possible. Its not clear if he can use the donated money to pay the lawyer's fees, but perhaps the lawyer(s) will work pro bono to support the wall, including funding the defense when environmental organizations, grazers, etc bring suit against the wall ?


Private citizens do not conduct government policy.

I am?? I am so not following you here. I can vote individuals in our out, and the occasional bond, but I have never been given a choice to pick which government activity I want to donate to when I file my taxes. What am I missing?


its a CA thing - not Fed after all.

Note - every place I've lived will have some goal and 'sell bricks' to pay for it. Whats to stop the Feds from selling bricks in the wall? W Devos, they showed they dont need no education, after all.
The gofund me woulda bought a lot a bricks. Maybe even bought some border property to put those bricks on - after completion of safety assessments and environmental impact assessments. On the other hand, GoFundMe's status is up in my eyes with its refunding plan.
