An international agency has ordered that a section of privately built border wall must indefinitely keep its gate opened because organizers built the wall without obtaining authority from federal officials.

The International Boundary and Water Commission — an agency tasked with managing land issues between the U.S. and Mexico — said organizers of the privately funded “We Build the Wall” GoFundMe campaign built a wall with a locked gate in New Mexico, not far from El Paso, Texas.

The group allegedly locked the gate last week, blocking access to levee road on one side of the gate and a national monument on the other, BuzzFeed News reported.

After repeated requests for organizers to open the gate to the half-mile stretch of wall, the IBWC, along with law enforcement officials, indefinitely opened the gate. However, the gate is being closed at night due to “security concerns.”

According to the IWBC, organizers submitted incomplete paperwork to build on federal property on June 2, after the wall had already been completed and publicly unveiled. On June 6, the IWBC responded to the request and asked for additional information. It was on that day that organizers allegedly locked the gate.

“They think they can build now and ask questions later, and that’s not how it works,” Lori Kuczmanski, a spokesperson for the IWBC, told BuzzFeed News. “This is policy and procedure, and you don’t just come into our property and build first.”

The organizer behind the “We Build the Wall” campaign claimed that “Mexico just opened all gates” through the IWBC for a “mass invasion,” according to BuzzFeed. However, there was no planned “mass invasion.”

Meanwhile, the group claimed, according to KTSM-TV, that the IWBC knew about the gate and that there was an agreement to close the gate but leave it unlocked. The IWBC, however, did not indicate the existence of any agreement.

A construction foreman told KTSM— which found the gate “closed” when reporters inspected it — the gate was shut to allow concrete to cure.

“The only reason on the construction site, we have the gate closed, is so we can let the concrete cure for the backside of the base, it’s got to cure for over 72-hours,” the foreman said. “We sent everybody home on Friday night.”

Sunland Park, New Mexico, where the wall is officially located, sent the group a cease-and-desist letter in late May ordering all construction be halted.

However, the group continued construction anyway.

In addition, the state of Florida has opened an investigation into the group behind the private campaign after fielding numerous complaints about the organization, many of which were referred from the state’s attorney general’s office. The organization behind the campaign is incorporated in the Sunshine State.

    These politicians who have compromised our country’s national security for their own selfish reasons are blatantly performing acts of treason against the United States. It’s hard to understand how in Hell they stand idly by while this invasion is going on. I truly believe that they are more concerned about padding their pockets than worrying about the security of our nation. How do these people get to make it their main concern enriching themselves instead of doing the job they are elected for. The government has definitely become the enemy within!!

    What is meant that there was no mass invasion by Buzz Feed? What have we been seeing for the last umpteen years?

    Might not be so bad. Instead of having to patrol miles of the border, now you only need to watch a few feet.

    Any Governor or state official who denies the broader wall are committing an act of treason and should be treated as such. Removed from office and tried and imprisoned. The broader wall is part of securing the national.

    It is obvious that this country has far too many bureaucrats who are deeply jealous of anybody or anything interfering with their control and far too little common sense being applied to the governing of our affairs. This wall is built on private property. I am sure that there are those in the government who detest the idea that a private property owner and private citizens in this country have gotten together and built a needed wall. That really gets in the way of the globalist who want all borders in this world opened to everybody.

    There is coming a point in American where those of us who love our country are going to take action to prove just how much we love the country and how far we will go to protect it from the powers that would destroy it.
