Billboard for 'We Fund the Wall' website appears in Amarillo
AMARILLO, Texas (KVII) —
Another politically charged billboard has popped up for drivers in Amarillo to view.
The latest billboard, located just on the north side of Interstate 40 across from Westgate Mall, pushes viewers to a website called WeFundTheWall.com. The website is linked to the GoFundMe page started by veteran Brian Kolfage to raise the funds to build President Donald Trump's border wall along the U.S.-Mexico southern border.
The site also features a petition for those in support of building the wall to sign to show their solidarity in the cause. As of this writing, the donations have reached more than $18 million and more than 3,500,000 people have signed the accompanying petition.
Politically charged billboards have not been uncommon in the Texas Panhandle of late, back in June a billboard telling liberals they can leave Texas appeared on I-40 just outside of Vega but was taken down as quickly as it appeared. Shortly after, a new sign appeared in Amarillo near I-40 and Coulter stating that "Texas is for everyone - not for bigotry," in a response to the sign that had been posted near Vega.
