Border wall fundraiser claims new construction in TexasClaims that a private group has started building its own border wall in South Texas were questioned this week by some longtime residents worried that the construction could cause flooding and violate treaty obligations between the U.S. and Mexico. The organizers of We Build the Wall, a nonprofit launched in December to support President Donald Trump’s signature promise of a border barrier, said this week in a Facebook video that they were going to build a 3.5-mile (5.6-kilometer) project on private land in the Rio Grande Valley, at Texas’ southernmost point. In the video, a construction worker claims the project would be as close as 25 feet (7.6 meters) away from the Rio Grande, with a wall and concrete road.
