The Guardian reports:
The construction of a private border wall partially funded by rightwing allies of Donald Trump continued with vigor in south Texas this week, seemingly in blatant violation of a court injunction ordering work to be suspended.
On Thursday and Friday, within three days of a temporary restraining order being issued, the Guardian found construction crews with at least 10 heavy machinery vehicles moving soil, digging trenches and positioning tall metal posts along the US bank of the Rio Grande in Hidalgo county, which forms the border with Mexico. A 3.5-mile, privately-funded concrete barrier is planned on the site, near Mission, Texas.
The state court order was served to We Build the Wall (WBTW), an anti-migrant group founded by military veteran Brian Kolfage [photo], and the landowners, Neuhaus and Sons LLC, whose land is situated between Trump’s proposed wall and the Mexican border.
ICYMI: We have received a Temporary Restraining Order against We Build the Wall, Inc. and Brian Kolfage who are building “border wall” in the floodplain on a neighboring property. Here, Marianna shares details… https://t.co/rdKuuWGv9c

Can we get a retweet if you are sick of fake LIB environmental groups enabling women and children to be raped by human traffickers. If you want open borders you are complicit to putting these women and children in harms way. #BUILDTHEWALK #PROTECTCHILDREN @brandondarby https://t.co/Ai0xZZy6iR
