Kris Kobach Crowdfunding Border Wall Update: Heroic Grassroots Crusade OR Tragic Internets Celebrity Career Conclusion?!?

Agree with his politics or not. The fact is that Prez Trump has turned his back on this loyal supporter and now he's begging for money online like everybody else during campaign season. Checkit:

Kobach working for $20-million border wall GoFund me

After the 2018 gubernatorial election loss, Kris Kobach was considering a job in the Trump administration. He didn't, but he's continuing his work on border and immigration policy, thanks to his new job on a project that received national support and attention. "We are actually building the wall with private money," said Kobach.

Kkkobach's just trying to figure out a way to skirt the system and illegally funnel that money into his campaign war chest.

President Trump needs $5.7 Billion to refurbish 115 miles of the Existing Border barrier and build 100 miles of new barrier.
This works out to approximately $26,511,628 per mile.

So far Kobach's "Foundation" has raised roughly $20 Million, or enough to build 3/4 of a mile, assuming that the entire amount raised is spent on building the barrier, and there are no "expenses" for travel, meals, "Administrative Costs" and so on.

It would appear that EITHER Kobach's Foundation has found a much less expensive way to build a satisfactory barrier, or Kobach is pulling off some sort of Greitens/Hawley shady financial disappearing act with the cash.

Talk about a great way to steal cash.
Gotta hand it to them. They are more clever than a bunch of dago gangsters.

This "kiss-ass" piece implies that Kobach CHOSE not to join the Trump Administration!

Truth is Trump said during one of his appearances trying to pimp this DudDude to the tinfoil hat crowd that he hoped Kris didn't get elected, so he (Trump) could get him in his Administration. Like so many things we've heard from the source over the past two years, this was the equivalent of what is found in the pasture when the Bull had departed.

8:55 wrong, there’s over a thousand miles of fence to be built, and that’s not the only thing getting done with that money, buildings, infrastructure and more personnel, get your facts straight dude.

(((Jared Kushner))), our Jewish son-in-law-in-chief, has worked to greatly expand legal immigration. On election day Americans will have one-tenth of a secure border. Four years later nothing will have changed. Establishment Republicans want cheap labor for their Billionaire donors. There will be no "wall" and what's going on in France with the Yellow Vests will look like a garden party. Thirty years of fighting Israel's enemies have created a great many combat Veterans. Grab your popcorn (and a Kevlar vest) !

@12:54 - there's over a thousand miles of the Border unfenced, true - but the current Administration's plans (Homeland Security website) for the next ten years are only for refurbishment/replacement of 115 miles of existing and installation of 100 miles of new barrier.

Most of the Border where it is possible to cross are already barricaded, of course. The thousand miles you mention are rivers and mountains, both impossible and unnecessary to barricade.

^^^ my bad, you’re right about the miles, but you didnt mention the buildings, roads and electronic monitoring devices and of course the additional employees, still very expensive though
