In December 2018, Brian Kolfage, a US Air Force Veteran and Purple Heart recipient, raised $25 million to help build part of the border wall between the US and Mexico. Last week Judge Keno Vasquez ruled that the 3.5-mile long private section of the border wall had to stop because it was causing “imminent and irreparable damage” to a 100-acre butterfly center.
That’s right, apparently, Judge Vasquez thinks the lives of some butterflies are more important than protecting our nation’s border. “The defendants’ conduct has demonstrated irreparable harm to [the Butterfly Center] since defendants have committed willfully, maliciously and with an actual and subjective intent to commit great harm to the plaintiff,” Vasquez wrote in his response to the case.
A little adversity makes the victory all that much more sweet. We won’t stop fighting to stop women & children from being enslaved by cartels. #StopHumanTraficking #BuildTheWall https://t.co/iQacF5POie

Kolfage has decided not to listen to the judge and has continued his efforts to get the wall built by January 15th.
