Acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf made an unpublicized visit Wednesday to the site of a privately constructed border wall during his first official trip to the southern border, Yahoo News has confirmed.

The stop at the half-mile stretch of crowdfunded steel bollard fencing, which was built without permits this spring on private land in Sunland Park, N.M., was not mentioned in a media advisory sent by the DHS press office ahead of Wolf’s trip to El Paso, Texas, where he was slated to “participate in an operational tour of DHS facilities on the southwest border, meet with local DHS leadership, survey new border wall construction, and meet with state, local and community officials.”

The article goes on to state the following:

However, a DHS spokesperson, who declined to speak on the record, confirmed to Yahoo News that Wolf did, in fact, stop by the private wall in Sunland Park, where he spoke to the owner of the property and an engineer from the construction company that built it.

Build The Wall founder Brian Kolfage posted a video, slamming reports that they were “shutting down.”  See videos below, which Kolfage posted, showing the work to build more wall continuing.

“We’d like to welcome our newest @DHSgov SECRETARY Chad Wolf to @WeBuildtheWall’s first project in Sunland Park, NM. Glad you loved our incredibly built smart wall that the American people funded privately. Let’s get the job done!” Kolfage tweeted.

“NOT SHUT DOWN! We’re making the RGV safe again. Today was a big day, we had a site visit at wall 1 from the new DHS Secretary Chad Wolf and he loved our technology! We’re building smart walls that are eco friendly, we are the future,” Kolfage said in another tweet.

Pro-immigrant group RAICES slammed the event. “This is reprehensible. It is also against international treaties that the US has with Mexico. This is another show that this administration sides with White Supremacists, such as Steve Bannon. We must build bridges, not walls,” they declared.
