Throughout the week last week and into the weekend, Sunland Park, New Mexico’s mayor and administration were swamped with phone calls and death threats concerning the city’s major problem with illegal immigration.

The Mayor, Javier Perea, was accused of being involved with the cartels. Between him and the administration, they received these phone calls from all over America.

The phone calls were an effort to get a border wall approved to stop illegals from flooding the city and the country.

A group of people came together to form an organization called We Build the Wall and put up a twenty-foot fence along the mountainside outside the city limits.

The quiet town became a national sensation when the group announced the border fence as the first fence built privately to protect the border.

But it did not last for long because the city put a halt on all construction to allow the mayor and his administration to evaluate the laws for the fence.

This angered the group’s founder and president, Brian Kolfage as he began shooting tweets about the New Mexico town being corrupt.

He was upset the project was being stopped, and that is when the death threats started by phone calls for the town’s mayor Javier Perea.

Police Chief Javier Guerra told reporters an anonymous phone call came through stating the city was “involved in organized crime,” and they sent out a death threat for Perea and his family.

Guerra stated the call was untraceable, and he put a patrol unit near the mayor’s home for their safety.

Perea stated, “The threats and name-calling are a cheap blow to the city of Sunland Park. But I am not going to stoop to that level. I am not going there.”

The organization of We Build the Wall started when the founder and creator Brian Kolfage, an Air Force veteran got together with a former Secretary of State from Kansas, Kris Kobach, and Steve Bannon who was a former White House strategist.

They all shared the same idea as many people do about the border. Our country needs protection, and they said by building a wall, migrants will not want to cross the border where they cannot get in.

Kobach told of how the idea and project came about. The nonprofit organization came to Sunland Park on April 6.

Fifty-seven days later the project started. On Memorial Day weekend, the fence was constructed, and the announcement to have it up was made on Memorial Day.

The property is owned by American Eagle where the 20-foot fence is being built. The operation is against Mount Cristo Rey, which is where Catholics gather and sits between three states.

It is also on the border of the United States and Mexico. The area is also known as Monument One which is a federal marker and is the boundary near the property where the business operates.

The city’s planning commission will hear from the developers and the public so they can gather all the information to bring before the City Council for a vote. They will also evaluate the size of the fence and time it takes to have it up.

Kobach claimed the project was brought up before President Donald Trump as he stated at a news conference, “He has told me several times, that he 100% endorses what We Build the Wall is doing.”

A Sunland Park resident, Carmen Marquez told reporters, “The private border fence casts a bad light on the city. I am worried about how the city is being perceived, and the way We Build the Wall treated Sunland Park was filthy. They (We Build the Wall) don’t care.”

She was just one of the few who was against the border fence. Many more support the project and stated their claims as the construction of the border fence continued.

Members from Angel Families spoke in favor of the wall at the news conference. Mary Ann Mendoza, who is an advisory board member of the nonprofit organization, stated, “My son’s life was snuffed out in 2014 by a drunk repeat illegal alien criminal who was allowed to stay in our country. We are all in support of legal immigration. Illegal immigration is what we don’t accept. It is a criminal act in itself, and we need to stop the flow. This (the wall) is a beautiful thing and has affected every Angel Family.”

This is just one of the many stories which hold the truth in the group’s support.

  1. WOW!!!. I salute the founders of the WE BUILD THE WALL. These are the patriots who wants to save the Great Nation of AMERICA. ONWARD SOLDIERS Keep America safe. Shield the paths of the ISiS.

  2. That piece of garbage mayor, needs to step down…and out! If he loves criminal illegals THAT MUCH, send him to the cartels, or MS13, for a well deserved vacation!

  3. Build the wall. People are not looking ahead. In 20 years this country will be called the united states of mexico.

  4. I thing the best way, is to erect a wall tall enough so that no one can scale (jump) it. The top should have barbed wire and, be live with electricity. That way, no one can scale the wall.

  5. Any time an illegal alien commits a felony , especially murder , rape , vehicular homicide or manslaughter , these crimes need to be layed at the feet of the demacrap party and especially the so called leadership. Namely Pelosi and Schummer andall the rest of the demacraps that refuseto do the job that they were elected to do , instead of continually trying to obstruct and subvert any and all that President Trump tries to do for the country and our people. These people need to be held accountable for their failure to protect the citizens of this great nation. “Impeachment” , yes , but for those members of congress that refuse to do their job. The people are damned tired of the sophomoric and childish whining of demacraps.

  6. The wall/fence is the only way to keep the illegals out of our country. They need to apply like all other people wanting to come here. They should abide by our laws, be able to speak and write in English plus pay taxes. No more free rides for anyone. We work and they should too.

  7. This section of ‘The Wall’ was built on private property with private funds on the US-Mexico border. The city of Sunland Park, New Mexico has no jurisdiction.

  8. We the American CITIZENS need to get behind President Trump and force the DEMOCRATIC PARTY in the house to fund this way once and for all. This is what it’s going to take to get it done. And if the DEMOCRATIC PARTY doesn’t work with Trump to fund the wall then the DEMOCRATIC PARTY needs to be voted out of the house and and REPUBLICANS need to be voted into office. Then we can get things done once again. Right now the DEMOCRATIC PARTY are stopping everything that Trump wants to get done.

  9. we have got to secure our border. we will not survive as a country if we do not. no other country in the world allows illegal immigration except the united states. and that is because the u.s. congress is shirking their responsibilities. we will be overrun by people from all countries and those individuals will not adapt to America by learning English, by not following proper procedure for attaining us citizenship, by taking advantage of national and states welfare programs. it is past time for this to be a “political” issue. It’s now a national emergency and it is going to tear us apart. Our national debt continues to climb and still we are arguing over whether or not we should allow everybody into our country?????

  10. lol The Mayor’s opposition to the fence stinks on ice. “Evaluate the laws for the fence” constitutes a very feeble and transparent stalling tactic and gives weight to accusations of corruption and/or certain liberal political aspirations. The matter has already seen its way through the Supreme Court successfully. And does your article not infer that the fence is, at least largely, on private (American Eagle) property? The only valid consideration is whether or not it meets established Federal specifications to be effective. The fence “casts a bad light on the city” according Ms. Marquez. She should be reminded that the fence/wall is a national imperative. No, any opposition to the fence/wall is without merit to say the least.

  11. If the property was given for the wall to be built the towns people should be happy it’s being done for the safety of the town. I think death threats from either side should be dealt with strongly. The wall is to discourage illegals from coming into this country. If they want to come here do it legally or stay home and deal with their own country.

  12. People , even the Illegal Refugees know that it is not right just to break the Law, come into our country and expect to be taken care of.

  13. police chief, mayor maybe they are in the cartiels pockets. why eff lse pull the plug on the private property wall? too many questions

  14. Well at least some people have the stones to do something about this invasion. Great job building the wall. Boo on the jack asses running the city. I see and like the wall as a great step to stemming the tide of this invasion. Don’t let the corrupt mayor and his crew get you down. And Carmen M. this wall could save your life from the invaders.

  15. SOVEREIGNTY OF A COUNTRY, IS SHOWN BY ITS BORDERS MAN MADE O NATURAL, usually fencing is employed with gates and entry points. Democrats have made every step to have open borders. drugs, and crime of every kind brought in to America. They say they want voter well thet already got 11 million DACA, BUT THEY TO THEIR SHAME WON’T WORK ON THAT PART OF immigration TO HELP THESE PEOPLE. They only work to attack POTUS BECAUSE THE WANT TO CARRY 2016 ELECTION RESULTS INTO 2020. They are as stupid as a three dollar bill, whats more power doing to do ? Absolutely NOTHING but waste tax payer money They know the Special Council Investigation was a hoax attempted coup there’re still pushing it which is treason to know something is fake and still keep after it, all of them should go to jail/prison for a long , long time to preclude future attempts of the same.

  16. The wall should be built all the way across the Mexican border to protect the AMERICAN people and the immigrants that come into America legally. Our country is no longer safe without the wall!

  17. I’m, oh well, what’s the problem??? Build the dam wall and be done with it. I don’t agree with the death threats to fix a dispute, but unfortunately some people are that serious about the need to be protected. They go to these levels of demand, as death threats are, but getting killed by someone that shouldn’t be here is worse. They don’t even worn you. We do have the ability to avoid getting killed by an illegal immigrant. Why isn’t Congress doing it??????????????

  18. SO OBVIOUS that the Mayor and others are on the cartel TAKE. Time to overrule the IDIOTS and seal the gate! President Trump needs to step in and solve the “confusion” of those on the take.

  19. I’m PRETTY SURE THE MAYOR IS OWNED BY THE “MEXICAN CARTEL”, HE IS DEFINITELY NOT FOR “WE THE PEOPLE” !!! There is an old saying : “ACTIONS SPEAK LOUDER THAN WORDS” !!!

  20. I agree with the citizens who built this private fence. They should have had it built by the Government, but politics at the federal level has stood in the way. We must protect our border to save our country.

  21. This is reduclis that DEMOCRATS/LIBERALS WON’T HELP FIX THIS VERY BAD SITUATION!! WE DON’T KNOW IF ISIS OR ANYONE ELSE FROM TERRORISM COUNTRIES ARE COMING IN, LET ALONE WHAT SICK PEOPLE ARE BRINGING IN TO ARE COUNTRY!! CSN SPEND BILLIONS ON WALL IN ISRAEL, THAT WORKED NO MORE BOMBS GOING OFF ON DAILY OVER THERE. WE HAVE KNOW IDEA WHO IS COMING IN !! COSTING US BILLIONS TO FEED & HOUSE ILLEGAL , NOW CALIFORNIA WANTS TO GIVE ILLEGAL MEDICARE!! WTF ,WORRY ABOUT ARE VET !!🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

  22. I SAY GET THE FENCE OR WALL BUILT!!!! AND I MEAN IT!!!!
    I HOPE YOUR MAYER COMES AROUND TO SEE ITS NECESSITY.

  23. We NEED WALLS as that is the best way to keep our citizens safe.This is OUR country.!!!!!
    Please American citizens stay together to save our country.!!
    Trump promised us a wall: now let him build it.
    It doesn’t matter whether you are left or right we MUST save lives.

  24. We need more rightful and quick response to this growing abuse and degradation of our country. The wall is what we needed and private citizens responded. Government and political entities should work together to stop illegal entry before it’s TOO LATE. Builng the wall NOW is a big step to curtailing the terrible burden on OUR COUNTRY.

  25. Death threats are common from all parts of the public. I worked for state government and we had 3-4 death threats a month coming from the “poor” or our own fired employees – and that was only to OUR building. And that didn’t count the death threats which came from ex-cons or others who wanted doctors to write them a prescription for “pain” meds and when the doctors refused, these Medicaid “clients” would call in and threaten the doctor’s receptionists with a bomb threat. This mayor must live in a really small town.
    The public was not allowed to come into our building unless they were going to meet with someone and that person met them at the front door and accompanied them to an office. No signs inside the building to indicate where any of the offices were in case an authorized person got in.
    No state offices allowed anyone to sit on the first floor of a building by a window, because of the possibility of being shot through the window.
    And I don’t even live on the border.

  26. It is time to stop the Cartels, and anyone who is not in favor make sure they our on the other side when the wall is finished. It is time to declare war on the Boarder if need be invade Mexico take out the cartels and corrupted government and give the Country back to the people,They could be as rich as we our if not more. Hell that is not a bad idea for here.
    DO WATTS RIGHT FOR OUR COUNTRY!!!!!
    Thank God for We Build The Wall GOD BELSS AMERICA

  27. The godless (remember they booed God at one of their conventions a few years ago) demoncrats will not stand for any wall or anything which keeps their future voters out of the country! They view themselves as gods and will do whatever it takes to assure votes to keep them in power, even if they have to be votes from criminals who violated the borders of our sovereign country as if there were no immigration laws! [all countries have immigration laws which no one has a problem with when protecting their own sovereign countries]

  28. The godless (remember they booed God at one of their conventions a few years ago) liberal democrats will not stand for any wall or anything which keeps their future voters out of the country! They view themselves as gods and will do whatever it takes to assure votes to keep them in power, even if they have to be votes from criminals who violated the borders of our sovereign country as if there were no immigration laws! [All countries have immigration laws which no one has a problem with when protecting their own sovereign countries]

  29. Interesting “mediators” here, I left a comment that thye mayor and NM officials are on t5he take to the cartels, which is obvious from their action — and it was removed. Same again, I am sure.

  30. God bless Brian Kolfage and thumbs up to all those that made it happen. They did what the U.S. Congress is supposed to do but can’t because the Democrats, the party of NO, won’t protect America. Well, we the citizens can. Then we should fire the entire Democrat party.
    Anyway, thanks to all you can do people for building the wall and showing America it can be done. Without the Democrat Conress.

  31. I believe the mayor and council just like schumer and Pelosi are taking money from the cartels to keep the border open. They should be arrested. ElChapo said he paid Schumer and pelosi $15 million and they are still keeping it open.

  32. The wall is not built for look’s but for the safety of our Country to keep out people that want to create trouble for their own benefit.
    We as country all need to sacrifice some to make our country safe.
    I have relatives that live in Europe that are constantly on watch for their safety and their property safety.
    All the politics on this issue are not helping it appears NO one is paying attention other then our President thank god for him.

  33. The Wall would not be needed which is a very expensive. If the Border Guards would be allowed to use live ammunition to deter violators a lot of money could be saved.This concept was working to separate East and West Germany and in many more places in the World.The southern US Border is a joke.Why do we not take care of the homeless people in the US first before we take care of the rest of the world??????

  34. Another Pro-Criminal group in control of another city.. Ignoring federal law to the point of endangering the lives you are supposed to protect. I am sure the drug cartels salute you. Are the mayor and police chief being paid to do this? An investigation into their bank accounts and finances need to take place to either verify the claim or exonerate Mayor Javier Perea and Police Chief Javier Guerra. In either case vote the mayor OUT of office then replace Police Chief Javier Guerra.

  35. Would you mind telling me why you feel my post needs to be moderated. There is no foul language, it is thanking the average American citizen for doing the work Congress won’t do and it is criticizing the Democrat part of Congress. There are no lies and I think my facts are well documented in other articles.

    So I’m just curious what is the problem?

  36. This wall is absolutely necessary to stop illegals and terrorists from accessing the U.S. We are becoming unnecessarily burdened by this influx of illegal immigrants and it will eventually, if not already, undermine the U.S. financially. I am glad they were able to do this and I am a supporter of this group.

  37. Stand firm patriots of New Mexico. It is our God given right to protect our borders and sovereignty. Corruption is rampant in Mexico and the drug cartels. They control much of the government so it is of no surprise that it may have reached politicians in New Mexico’s small towns

  38. THEY SHOULD STAY WHERE THEY CAME FROM—WE ARE TIRED OF GIVING SUPPORT TO THOSE WHO CAN NOT OR WILL NOT SUPP[ORT THEMSELVES!!!!

  39. It looks to me that the mayor of Sunland Park, NM is not looking after the welfare of the city’s U.S. citizens and legal immigrants living there but the welfare of the illegal immigrants that is why he ordered to stop the constructions of the border wall. He must be a DEM mayor. The mayor should be recalled and place a new one for the U.S. citizens and legal immigrants who live in that city.

  40. AMERICA MUST UNITE AND GET RID OF ALL THESE DEMOCRATS THAT ARE AGAINST BUILDING A WALL FOR OUR SAFETY . AS A TAX PAYER I THINK WE SHOULD VOTE THEM DEMOCRATS IN CONGRESS OUT OR OFFICE. THEY DO NOT CARE ABOUT US. THEY JUST WANT OUR TAX DOLLARS FOR THEIR SCREWED UP AGENDA.IT IS PLAIN TO SEE THEY WILL NOT SUPPORT PRESIDENT TRUMP ON ANYTHING AT ALL.WHAT A LIST OF SCREWED UP PEOPLE. WE HAVE CORTEZ WHO LIVES WITH HER BOYFRIEND., OMAR WHO IS MARRIED TO HER BROTHER AND SHOWS HER ANTI-SEMITISM TOWARD THE JEWISH PEOPLE.AND THEY SHOULD GO BACK TO THEIR HOME LAND. AND SEE IF THEY HAVE THE RIGHT TO FREE SPEECH ?

  41. The wall is 20 ft tall but I can’t see where the length is published. This was a good idea and should be resumed. Don’t let bureaucratic red tape slow it down!! Am sharing this story on my public Facebook site. Hope others also will do the same.

  42. If the wall is outside city limits,and is on private property,then Sunland Park has NO right to stop it.Sunland Park officials,”piss off cartel stooges”! Your corruption is showing clearly for all to see!

  43. T. ROOSEVELT — “ MONEY WALKS, TALKS, AND – CARRIES A BIG STICK …!!!” “ POWER CORRUPTS, ..AND ABSOLUTE POWER CORRUPTS ‘ABSOLUTELY ‘ …!!!” … !!!

  44. It’s not the fence that puts the city in a bad light, it’s the citie’s actions against the fence that are doing that.
