Triple-amputee vet Brian Kolfage started raising money to build President Trump’s wall on Monday. In three short days, at the time of this article, Airman Kolfage had raised over $9 million and that number is rising fast.
Most everyone was stunned that that much money had been raised in that short amount of time, but Americans want the wall, and Airman Kolfage saw a way to get it built despite congressional Democrats blocking Trump’s efforts to begin construction.
Of course, the triple-amputee veteran’s actions triggered the left. They’re crying about it all over social media. Enter has-been actress Alyssa Milano who everyone loved before she stuck her nose into politics.
Milano tweeted about Kolfage’s wall funding project:
“Oh, yes! Let’s #GoFundTheWall while not taking care of our veterans. Cool. Cool. Cool.”
Oh, yes! Let's #GoFundTheWall while not taking care of our veterans. Cool. Cool. Cool.

Apparently Milano is unaware that Kolfage himself is a veteran, not only that, but he is the most severely wounded Airman to survive any war. The triple-amputee travels the country, attending events to raise money for other severely wounded vets. He also sits on the boards of several veterans charities.
#Liberals started their own #GoFundMe to pay for ladders to get over #TrumpsWall LOL! Maybe they could use a ladder to get over how wrong they are 😉#GoFundTheWall #GoFundMeForTheWall #GoFundMeBuildtheWall #BuildTheWall

One Twitter user called out Milano, tweeting:
“Hey, Alyssa…the GoFundMe page was started by @BrianKolfage, a triple amputee veteran who was blown up while fighting in Iraq. He does more to help injured veterans in one day than your obnoxious tweet ever could. #AnotherIrrelevantHollywoodVoice #GoFundTheWall”
Shortly after Kolfage’s wall funding effort went viral, a transgender person started a GoFundMe for ladders to get over Trump’s wall. Milano retweeted the fundraiser to her Twitter account.
The transgender, Charlotte Clymer, is actually an Army vet, and is extremely anti-Trump, and anything Republican. She tweeted this the other day:
“If you support a party that is anti-LGBTQ and anti-woman and xenophobic and white supremacist because you think your taxes are too high, you are not “socially liberal”.”

Milano is seen with Clymer in this Instagram photo from September.
Milano is not known to be affiliated with the anti-Kolfage “Ladders to Get Over Trump’s Wall” GoFundMe, yet. Although she is promoting it. The ladder fundraiser has taken in about $50,000. Which shows you how much more people want the wall. Almost $10 million raised for the wall in three days vs $50k for ladders raised in one.
Milano tried to blame President Trump for migrant deaths in a recent op-ed for The Guardian UK. She penned the piece in reference to the 7-year-old migrant girl who died after her father didn’t tell the Border Patrol she was sick. Milano wrote in part:
“The White House also took no responsibility, instead blaming Cruz for his daughter’s death. These are the architects of a system that routinely leaves immigrants no option but to cross through the desert. An immigration system that restricts legal entry and then ensures dehydration and detention for those who cross otherwise will naturally have fatal results. In fact, the system is intended to heighten these dangers and then broadcast them to those who would follow. The deaths themselves are the deterrent.”

Milano is just pro-illegal immigration and anti-American. For her to call out Airman Kolfage’s efforts to fund the construction of the wall & say we’re not taking care of veterans is ludicrous. Kolfage does plenty to help his fellow wounded veterans, and President Trump has done amazing work revamping the VA system, already getting rid of 3600 employees who weren’t giving vets the care they need.
Milano is just a screeching has-been lemming actress trying to stay relevant. She has nothing on Airman Kolfage, other wounded vets, or those who want to fund the wall so we can keep Americans safe and prevent any more Kate Steinles from happening.

Yuma Mayor Declares Emergency Over Migrant Crisis – City Overrun
This story originally appeared on WeBuildTheWall.news & was edited & republished with permission:
Sounds like a humanitarian and a national security crisis to me and I’m not the only one who sees it that way. Yuma Mayor Douglas Nicholls just declared an emergency in his city due to what he said was the strain caused by the incoming flow of migrants. The agents and authorities are simply being overwhelmed and swarmed by these invaders.
1,800 came over the border in one day… one day! Half of those detained on Tuesday crossing over from Mexico were found in the El Paso, Texas area, according to officials. Border patrol said more than 980 were apprehended before 5 am after crossing in three large groups. Yuma is having just as rough a time of it.
Mayor Nicholls went public with this on Facebook. He explained that he “proclaimed a local emergency” in the city “due to the migrant family releases overwhelming the local shelter system.” And it’s not just the sheer numbers of illegal immigrants… it’s the economic burden, the crime, the drugs, the danger to children and disease that is playing into this massive emergency state.
Nicholls is begging the government to step in and do something here. I don’t blame him in the least. They need help and fast. “I am calling upon the federal government to alleviate the humanitarian crisis in Yuma, as our NGO’s are overcapacity and cannot sustain providing this aid,” the post said. Here’s a thought – ship all of them to sanctuary cities just as Trump proposed. Works for me. Better yet, don’t let them in at all unless they come here legally.
From Fox News:
“Nicholls, in a video, laid out his reasoning behind the declaration, saying that he ultimately feels that its what’s best for both Yuma and the incoming migrants.
“So it’s with a heavy heart that I declare that we’re at this point but it is something that I believe we need to do to make sure that our community is maintained and that the human rights of all the migrants are also maintained and that we have a path forward that respects both,” he said.
“The city of Yuma, Ariz., also tweeted about the proclamation, citing Nicholls, claiming that released migrants were coming into the area faster than they were leaving.
“The move by the local official comes after President Trump declared a national emergency at the nation’s southern border earlier this year.”
Mayor: Migrants being released into the community faster than they are departing, and shelters and the staff to run them are at max capacity. A state of emergency is declared.

“The transportation network is just insufficient to keep up with demand,” Nicholls said. “And the backlog of people staying at the shelter has created this capacity issue.” The media and the left are playing it up that the poor illegal immigrants don’t have money for bus fare to go to relatives while they await their court date. But the issue here is that they should not be here in the first place.
Now, the city is hoping for a FEMA response. In signing the declaration, Nicholls said he hopes to draw national attention to the plight of local communities struggling with a federal issue, adding that he’s talking to officials in other border cities and calling on them to issue similar emergency declarations. The mayor stated that he had spoken to Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey, who signaled his support for the declaration.
Today I proclaimed a local emergency in Yuma, due to the migrant family releases overwhelming the local shelter system. I am calling upon the federal government to alleviate the humanitarian crisis in Yuma, as our NGO’s are overcapacity and cannot sustain providing this aid. I signed the proclamation of emergency and soon after spoke with media at approximately 3:15 pm (MST). You can view via the video below:
Posted by Douglas Nicholls, Yuma Mayor on Tuesday, April 16, 2019
“We will review any declaration once we receive it,” according to a statement Tuesday night from Patrick Ptak, a Ducey spokesman. “Ultimately, this humanitarian crisis is the result of Congress’ failure to act. It will only be solved by Congress actually doing something, and the governor has vocally urged Congress to quit playing politics and take action. If only they would.
“In the wake of their inaction, our office is working with local governments, non-profits and our federal partners to maximize available resources and ensure proper coordination between ICE officials and groups providing temporary services to migrants.”
I rolled into Mexico illegally, and came back into the USA… upon entering I got free healthcare, dental, welfare and cash in my pocket. It was that easy. @DonaldJTrumpJr @realDonaldTrump @RealJamesWoods @Education4Libs @IngrahamAngle @gehrig38 @SheriffClarke @NeilWMcCabe2 pic.twitter.com/8BHuqGbaZA

Nicholls fears hungry migrants roaming the streets. He should fear much worse than that. “This isn’t a natural disaster,” Nicholls said. “But it is a disaster.”
“… the local emergency exceeds control of the services, personnel, equipment and facilities of the City of Yuma and requires the combined efforts, cooperation, and resources of the Yuma community including local and non-profit agencies such as the Red Cross, Catholic Community Services, The Salvation Army, Yuma Community Food Bank, churches, the County of Yuma, the State of Arizona, and the United States of America,” the statement said.
It’s long past time for the wall to be built and We Build The Wall should start their project this month. Meanwhile, President Trump is still scratching and fighting for every mile of barrier put up. Put the blame of all this where it belongs… squarely on the left. #WeBuildTheWall
