What's the story?
- Various Republican politicians and pundits have proposed crowdfunding campaigns to pay for a border wall to separate the U.S. and Mexico.
What are people proposing?
- The Border Wall Trust Fund Act would authorize the Treasury Department to accept donations to a Border Wall Trust Fund to plan, design, construct, or maintain a barrier along the U.S.-Mexico international border. It would also require the Dept. of Homeland Security to build commemorative display at the wall, recognizing individuals who had donated to the Border Wall Trust Fund.
- The Buy a Brick, Build the Wall Act would allow the Secretary of the Treasury to accept public donations – in dollars, pesos, and cryptocurrency - to fund the construction of a barrier on the border between the U.S. and Mexico.
- FundTheWall.com, run by a sheriffs' association, is accepting funds towards building Trump's "big beautiful wall." “Border security is fundamental,” the site says. “The problem: DHS can’t get a wall built. The Solution? Crowdfund border security.”
“Either way, you and I pay for it.”
- GoFundMe - New York Post’s Michael Goodwin asked in a column this past weekend: “Why hasn’t someone made a GoFundMe for Trump’s wall?”
- “According to my mail, a lot of people are willing to chip in. One reader writes to me and says 'if the 63 million people who voted for Donald Trump each contributed $80, that would get you near the $5 billion mark. I think that's the kind of thing that needs to happen,” Goodwin told Fox News. He continued:
“The important thing is the public could step in and effectively do this thing that the president wants."
