The United States Federal Government has filed a lawsuit against We Build The Wall Thursday.
The campaign is looking to build their own wall in Mission.
Court documents state The United States International Boundary and Water Commission filed the suit against We Build the Wall, Inc., Fisher Industries, Fisher Sand and Gravel Co., and Neuhaus & Sons, LLC, to stop the construction of the bollard along the Rio Grande River.
According to the complaint, in late November the contractor Fisher Industries confirmed it would not start construction until the USIBWC finished conducting analysis of the area.
However, on or about December 3, We Build The Wall posted a video which stated in part, “The wall is going up this week no matter what,” said the court report. They also continued to work by trenching and moving into the location.
The federal government has also filed a Temporary Restraining Order, according to court documents.
The initial conference hearing will take place Thursday, December 5.
The National Butterfly Center also filed a restraining order on Tuesday afternoon against Brian Kolfage, President of the “We Build the Wall” campaign.
