GoFundMe Page Seeks $150M to Provide Illegals with Shovels to Tunnel Under Trump's Border Wall

Liberals sure do hate the idea of a border wall to protect the citizens of this country.

One Florida man hates the idea so much, he found a very — how do I say? — “interesting" way to help illegals if they ever encounter Trump’s wall on their journey to the states. 

Last week, Rigo Torres started a GoFundMe page to provide illegal immigrants with shovels so they can dig their way under the wall if need be. 

The page entitled “Support Tunnels Under Trumps Wall” is meant to “offset” the donations given to the “We The People Will Fund The Wall” effort by veteran and Purple Heart recipient Brian Kolfage.  

Kolfage’s GoFundMe page, which supports the president’s goal to build a border wall, hit over $5 million in just 4 days and now sits just under $18 million after 11 days. 

“Democrats are going to stall this project by every means possible and play political games to ensure President Trump doesn’t get his victor. They'd rather see President Trump fail, than see America succeed,” Kolfage wrote.

Torres’ effort to outdo the veteran’s GoFundMe page doesn’t appear to be off to a good start, having only raised — wait for it — a measly $3,000 of its $150 million goal in just over a week’s time. Surprisingly, the “illegal immigrant supporting page” has had 260 donations and has been shared on Facebook over 300,000 times. 

“To the thousands of people raising money for a wall...... I’m raising money to supply tunnel builders with shovels...... I’m sure we won’t need the $150,000,000 but In all reality who gives a s***….. let’s see how much I can raise….” Torres wrote.

That sure sounds like a guy you can trust.

Torres claims he will donate the money to the American Civil Liberties Union because the organization is focused on defending the rights of immigrant families and “won’t stop fighting until families are reunited.” 

“The organization already has raised over $1 million, thanks in part to donations from celebrities like musician John Legend and his wife Chrissy Teigen,” he mentioned. “Let’s help these kids and parents be together and spend time with family, and not in detention centers….”  

We’ll see how this one turns out, but I have a feeling anyone who donates to this effort won’t be seeing a good return on their “investment.”
