Tempe contractor stopped by New Mexico mayor from building border wall

By Marissa Armas | KOAT

Eighty percent of a private border wall was built in Sunland Park, New Mexico, but now construction is halted, after the mayor of the city delivered a cease and desist order to the owners of the land.

The group “We Build The Wall” broke ground on the wall along the U.S.-Mexico border on Friday. 

“Using private donations, on private land to build on an international boundary, all of those things are defying the odds,” said Dustin Stockton, one of We Build The Wall co-founders.

Fisher Industries based out of Tempe, Arizona, is the primary contractor for the wall. The land belongs to American Eagle Brick Company. On Wednesday, Stockton told KOAT they followed all the proper protocols.
