Officials have ordered a privately funded section of wall on the U.S.-Mexico border to keep its gate open indefinitely, saying organizers failed to obtain required permits, according to BuzzFeed News.

The International Boundary and Water Commission (IBWC), which oversees waterway issues between the U.S. and Mexico, said the organizers of We Build the Wall, which raised more than $23 million, had not obtained permission to build on federal land.

The article goes on to state the following:

The half-mile barrier, on the border near Sunland Park, N.M., restricts access to a public monument and waterways, according to the IBWC.

The ACLU of New Mexico declared on Friday that the wall is blocking access to a national monument, and shared a tweet announcing they are fighting to stop the wall.

Military veteran and founder of We Build The Wall Brian Kolfage responded on Twitter, writing, “This is how you know the ACLU and Sunland Park are lying about access to monument 1. Here’s a 2017 article about our land owners controlling the private property access. LIE LIE LIE, we will win win win again!”

In another tweet, Kolfage said Border Patrol are outraged!  “Right now border agents are SWARMING our wall. They’re FURIOUS that the IBWC opened their new gate and undermining their security PROTOCOLS! @harkjay350 just told @DHSgov and @CBP to Fu*K off and #WhosYourDaddy apparently a UN type .org calls the shots now on US national security,” he tweeted.

Kolfage also shared a video showing massive numbers of illegal immigrants hoping right over the border into the United States at the end of the border wall. “Invasion underway, about 1000 crossed yesterday here. All getting free emergency welfare from New Mexico! We have video of migrants paying coyotes cash to cross. DEMS ARE FUNDING CARTELS!” he wrote.

Jim Benvie, an independent reporter on the border, posted a video Monday evening, showing other gates the federal officials have left open, allowing illegal immigrants to pass through.
