A newly-constructed half-mile border wall funded by the American people through the “We Build The Wall” private group near the Texas-New Mexico border has just faced it’s first major challenge – government officials reportedly went out Monday evening, opened the gate, and LOCKED it open.

The 18-foot steel bollard wall was built along the southern border between El, Paso Texas and Sunland Park, New Mexico. The wall closes a gap across rugged terrain, and connects two 21-mile sections of fencing between an El Paso wall and another wall in Sunland Park. The open gap has reportedly been a hotbed for human and drug trafficking.

Jim Benvie, an independent reporter who has been documenting activity along the border to his Facebook followers, posted a video Monday evening explaining what had just taken place. He said the ACLU filed a lawsuit with the local Water Commission and the Bureau of Land Management. As a result, federal officers came and opened the gate, and put a padlock on it, preventing it from being closed.

“We’re going to fight this,” an outraged Benvie said. “This is the government locking the gate open so people can come in, after you built this wall!”

A co-owner of the property chimed in, equally outraged, and said, “This is a bunch of leftist, Obama holdovers. That’s all I’ve got to say!”

Benvie said the gate had been built to provide access for Border Patrol agents, but confirmed that U.S. Border Patrol were not the ones who locked the gate open.  He said Border Patrol would never do that. “They love this gate,” he said, adding that the gate was opened by the International Boundary and Water Commission.

Brian Kolfage, a veteran and founder of the “Build The Wall” group, also blasted the action in a series of Twitter posts. He posted photos and videos of other gates which he alleged the local authorities have left open for illegal aliens as well.

“The IBWC locked our gate wide open to allow illegal aliens in to the United States. Last night cartels from Mexico tried to enter. The IBWC is anti @realDonaldTrump and they leave all border gates open. We have many videos of them leaving gates open for illegals like this one,” Kolfage tweeted.

“Jayne Harkins has been appointed to serve as the new U.S. Commissioner of the International Boundary and Water Commission, United States and Mexico and she wants to leave all border gates open like this one for illegals to cross making all walls ineffective. FIRE HER TRUMP!” he added.

Kolfage referred to President Trump’s tweet from May 30, regarding the largest apprehension ever of 1,036 illegal aliens in the same area on May 29th. He alleged the massive group got across because the border gates had been left open.

#CloseTheGate why are we as Americans being forced to follow an international organization that leaves border walls wide open? @WeBuildtheWall will not be bullied by an international organization. #CloseTheGate or we will close it with our angel families,” Kolfage said in another tweet.

    Again we are losing the country and this proves who is destroying America, if we the people don’t start taking action against ‘these very evil people they will and are doing everything they can to destroy America and it’s citizens.
    This does have Satan S behind this Blatant display of attacking this country and with the help of Corrupt others.
    This woman also needs to be fired, totally sickening at what is happening to this country.
    We are at WAR and losing because of these very evil people and we the people have to fight back for our families and children’s future.
