We Build the Wall, Inc., a nonprofit organization founded by triple amputee veteran Brian Kolfage, is gearing up to build a second portion of wall along the U.S. Mexico border on private land in Mission, Texas and the “deep state” International Boundary and Water Commission is, again, relentlessly doing everything to sabotage the project.

The IBCW was created by the U.S. and Mexico in 1889 to administer the rules for demarcating the location of the border between the two countries, which sits on banks of the meandering Rio Grande River. The U.S. Section of the international body is administered by the State Department and the Mexican section is overseen by the Secretariat of Foreign Relations.

The Department of Justice on Dec. 5 filed a lawsuit on behalf of IBCW against Fisher Industries, the construction company We Build The Wall is contracting to assemble the wall, demanding the group to discontinue building a physical barrier on the banks of the Rio Grande.

The border wall, IBCW claims, would violate the United States’ 1970 international water treaty with Mexico by causing flooding that would alter the course of the international waterway and destruct the shoreline.

In response, U.S. District Judge Randy Crane issued a restraining or mandating We Build the Wall suspend construction and ordered the government to disclose the results of a hydrology study that would substantiate its unfounded charges.

During a hearing Thursday at the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas in McAllen, U.S. Attorney E. Paxton Warner claimed the Federal Emergency Management Agency has already conducted a mapping study that confirms the construction of a border wall would cause catastrophic environmental damage on the river banks by utilizing expensive state of the art Light Detection and Ranging equipment, also known as LIDAR.

Yet, FEMA claimed has declined to provide its study to IBCW, Warner admitted.
