New Mexico Town Gets Death Threats After Halting Crowd-Funded Border Wall

According to Reuters, a New Mexico mayor on Thursday said he and his staff received multiple death threats after they briefly halted construction of a crowd-funded, private border wall by a group.

Sunland Park Mayor Javier Perea ordered the project to stop on Tuesday, saying it lacked building permits.

Construction was resumed within 36 hours, however, after the city rushed through necessary approvals for the group We Build the Wall, which expects to complete the project within days.
