On Wednesday, "The White House Brief" host Jon Miller highlighted We Build the Wall, a private crowd sourced group that began construction on a wall in El Paso, Texas, along the U.S.-Mexico border after raising $20 million in donations through a GoFundMe campaign.

In this clip, Miller explained that shortly after construction began, the local government approached the group and offered assistance with the wall. However, the government returned later only to issue a cease and desist letter that halted construction for not having the appropriate permits from the city.

Fox News reported that the building site selected was in a location that, according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection, was one of the most heavily breached entry points along the U.S.-Mexico border.

Miller reported that when the group was shocked to learn later that there was an issue that warranted a cease and desist letter which cited an issue with the height of the fence which apparently failed to meet code.
