Wall do­na­tions re­funded or shifted to non­profit ef­fort

Milwaukee Journal Sentinel - - Milwaukee Wisconsin -

FORT LAUD­ERDALE, Fla. – A Florida man said the 339,000 peo­ple who con­trib­uted more than $20 mil­lion on­line to help build a wall along the south­ern U.S. bor­der can get re­funds or shift their sup­port to a new non­profit ef­fort.

Air Force vet­eran and triple am­putee Brian Kolfage, 37, said on the GoFundMe page he started in De­cem­ber that seg­ments of the wall would be pri­vately con­structed. Kolfage says his group is iden­ti­fy­ing ar­eas that are fre­quently crossed; look­ing into wall so­lu­tions based on ter­rain, en­vi­ron­ment and other is­sues; and ask­ing landown­ers if they would pro­vide free or low­cost ease­ments for its con­struc­tion.
